The Stages in the
Rite of Christian Initiation Process
Inquiry: I have been called to consider this faith community.
Catechumenate: I am received into the period of preparation.
Purification: I examine my life and come to understand my failings.
Enlightenment: I have been called and initiated. "Thank you, Lord."
Mystagogia: I will never learn enough about my God and my Church.
