The Essentials of Christian Initiation (ECI), a six-week, virtual training course developed by Liturgy Training Publications, provides a basic and thorough introduction to the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and serves as a foundation to implementing the vision of Christian initiation ministry in a parish setting. The course guides participants through the various periods and steps of the RCIA through the lens of conversion, evangelization, and discipleship.
