Revised RCIA / OCIA

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: Good Afternoon Fr Paul,

I am heading into a meeting shortly but was wondering if you knew more about the revised RCIA / OCIA. Do you know when we might anticipate its promulgation?  

Trying to get things in line here and hoping you may have some insight.


A: The Vatican’s Dicastery for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments has approved the new English translation for the US, and the USCCB’s Office of Divine Worship is now reviewing the text for any editorial corrections. From there, it will go to publishers, who will need several months to get the new books ready.

No “first-use date” or “obligatory-use date” has been issued. But we should hear something fairly soon. My armchair guess is that it’ll be implemented in early 2025.
