This portable, paperback edition of the revised Order of Christian Initiation of Adults offers presiders, lay ministers, and ministry students, convenient access to the text at any time. Perfect for preparing the liturgical rites and for parish staff on the go as they accompany candidates and catechumens, Liturgical Press’s Study Edition beautifully complements the Ritual Edition in both cover design and interior content.

The revised edition of the Order of Christian Initiation of Adults: Study Edition, like the ritual edition:

  • 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).

The study edition includes a clean interior specifically designed for this edition to allow for quick identification of rubrics and ritual text. This portable and functional resource also features an engaging image that beautifully incorporates the sacraments of initiation, making it also a source of inspiration and imagination for all who use it.
