This book helps parishes prepare and celebrate the rites of the Christian initiation process in ways that are appropriate to children. It also describes how to prepare children and their families for full participation in the rites. The Q&A chapter answers a range of questions.

Testimonial from Mary Birmingham: The reason the Church was given a liturgical rite (RCIA) to prepare people for the sacraments of initiation is the ancient and correct belief that rites form people in the faith. This belief is as true for children as it is for adults. This book should be in the hands of every catechist responsible for preparing children for the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and Eucharist. Too often formation for children preparing for sacraments, the RCIA in particular, is a didactic, educational approach that fails to respect the role of the rites of initiation in initiatory formation of adults and children. This resource sets forth a theological framework for the initiation of children--an historical context as well as sound praxis set forth in the rite. From there the catechist is shown how to prepare children and their families for full and active participation in the rites, and how to celebrate them. This is a unique and invaluable resource.

Testimonial from Sr. Jeanette Lucinio, SP: I highly recommend this book  to all who are involved in celebrating the Rite of Christian Initiation of Children of Catechetical Age. The introductory pages give such a clear description of the historical development of the sacraments which will not only be interesting to those who read them but open their minds to the depth of the decision made at Vatican II to reinstate this treasure to the Church. We have experienced it as the most powerful path for renewal in the local church as well as evangelization of the whole families of our child catechumens.
