In the RCIA, there is an optional clothing of the newly baptized at the Easter Vigil with a (most often) white robe to symbolize their new baptismal purity. (Para. 229) It has become increasingly common to mirror this white robe with a colored robe during the rites associated with catechumenate and up to the baptism itself.
What is your experience with this practice? Is it only for baptism or for all of the liturgies of the catechumenate? Is it done at all?
Below is a picture of this practice in St. James Cathedral in Seattle, WA.
