The Office for the Catechumenate,
the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), is responsible for
continuing the implementation of the catechumenate as envisioned by the
Vatican II Council with its adaptation for children. The mission of the
office is to serve the catechumenate under the Bishop's direction which
is to "take steps toward restoring the instruction of adult catechumens
or toward adapting it more effectively."(Decree on the Pastoral Office of Bishops in the Church Christus Dominus, no. 14).
