The 4 Phases of the RCIA Process:
The Inquire phase of the RCIA is a time to ask questions and discuss Catholic teachings.
The Inquiry phase leads into the Catechumenate where participants enter more deeply into church teachings.
After some time in the Catechumenate, which is decided through prayer and discernment; participants
move into the phase of Purification and Enlightenment. The Purification phase starts in Lent and lasts until
the Easter Vigil. After the Easter Vigil, and the reception of the sacraments of initiation, participants enter
the phase of Mystagogy. The Mystagogy phase ends at Pentecost. New Catholics, called Neophytes, remain
so for one year.
