Guidelines and Resources for RCIA Teams

In order to respond to the pastoral needs and practical questions regarding the RCIA process which have arisen since 2003, some clarifications, updates and explanations were added to the Archdiocesan RCIA Guidelines by the staff of the Secretariat for Education, Evangelization and Catechesis. Canonical review and editing was provided by the Judicial Vicar of the Archdiocese of Hartford, Rev. George S. Mukuka, J.C.L.

Please note that this document supersedes any previous guidelines or memorandums distributed since 2003.

The 2018 RCIA Guidelines are available in PDF form by clicking the links below:

Included in the RCIA Guidelines is a comprehensive list of resources for those involved in RCIA ministry. It includes primary sources, catechetical and liturgical resources, online training opportunities, and more. This list is available separately in a PDF, which can be viewed and downloaded by clicking here.
