Give Feedback: New English Edition of the RCIA

From the USCCB Committee on Divine Worship Newsletter, Volume LIV, July 2018:

The Committee on Divine Worship is in the early stages of preparing a new English edition of the RCIA, to be titled the Order of Christian Initiation of Adults. Although the Latin editio typica has not changed, the International Commission on English in the Liturgy (ICEL) has completed a new translation of the Latin text. 

The Committee and its consultants have had preliminary discussions on the current ritual book and the RCIA process and have received the results from two surveys on the National Statutes for the Catechumenate, both conducted in 2014: one by the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA) that looked specifically at how the statutes were being implemented, and the other a consultation conducted by the Federation of Diocesan Liturgical Commissions (FDLC) that suggested ways that the statutes could be improved.

As a complement to these discussions and expert consultations, the Secretariat of Divine Worship would also like to hear from others about their experiences with the RCIA, both the process in general and, in particular, the ritual book and the National Statutes. Responses can be e-mailed to RCIA@usccb.org or sent by regular mail to: USCCB – Divine Worship, 3211 Fourth Street, NE, Washington, DC 20017, ATTN: RCIA Consultation.

Responses must be received by December 31, 2018.
