This RCIA manual is designed for use in the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA. Please consult with a Catholic military priest-chaplain to discuss the best way to utilize this resource. It is important to have fully initiated Catholic mentors to consult with, to bring questions to and to pray with during this process. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is not an individual study process. RCIA necessarily requires community.
