Through the Order of Christian Initiation of Adults, parishes welcome new Catholic Christians, accompanying them on a journey of faith and conversion as they seek the living God. Priests, deacons, and pastoral leaders will find the Liturgical Press edition of the revised translation of the Order of Christian Initiation of Adults combines ease of use with durability and liturgical elegance. Carefully formatted for readability in various environments, this revised edition of the Order of Christian Initiation of Adults:

  • retains the same arrangement and paragraph numbering as the previous Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, while simplifying the numbering of chapters.
  • moves the National Statutes from an appendix to the front of the book, so that all relevant legislation concerning the Initiation rites are more properly grouped together.
  • includes refined terminology to correspond better and consistently with pastoral practice, including the use of the terms catechumens and candidates.
  • provides new sample introductions to be used by celebrants in the combined rites, making clear the distinctions between catechumens and candidates.
  • expands the combined rites for the Easter Vigil to now include texts for the baptism of an infant (adapted from the Order of Baptism of Children).
  • includes three elegant ribbon markers for easy reference.
  • features a simple silver-stamped image by Br. Martin Erspamer, OSB, that beautifully reflects the sacraments of initiation.
