The following materials have been prepared to aid in the implementation of the RCIA in the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend
- RCIA Inquirer Registration Form – This is a sample form that can be adopted and modified to your needs. Please note the marriage section of the form only asks the most basic questions needed to help determine if a potential difficulty exists. It is incumbent upon the parish to then do further follow-up with the inquirer as needed.
Basic Liturgical Steps of the RCIA – A walk-through of the steps that catechumens and candidates undertake, respectively
Christian Initiation "Decision Treeâ€ – A simple flow chart showing how to direct individuals of different backgrounds
Baptismal Validity Chart – A non-exhaustive listing of churches with valid or invalid baptisms
Detailed Review of RCIA Rites and Norms – A thorough breakdown of the proper application of liturgical rites, as well as the rules and regulations that govern initiation under particular circumstances (updated Nov 30, 2017)
