The RCIA is a communal process that involves a number of stages punctuated by liturgical
rites to aid and assist potential converts (adults and unbaptized children 7 years or older)
toward the final rite, usually at the Easter Vigil, at which time they will become full members of
the Roman Catholic Church. The entire process takes several months, (ideally a minimum of
one complete liturgical year), but participants are generally invited to proceed at a pace
which suits them individually. The Church prefers to call this a process and not a program.
