What does conversion look like for children and youth? How do we teach them that conversion is a way of life that requires daily commitment? These questions are even more pressing today than they were in 1988 when the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (with adaptations for children) was issued.

In Children and Youth in the Catechumenate, Anne Koester shows catechumenate ministers how to immerse young seekers into an apprenticeship in Christian life. By using the liturgy of the church and the liturgy of life, she demonstrates the four integral dimensions of Christian discipleship that form young believers for mission.

Anne Koester works and teaches at Georgetown University. She also serves as the coordinator of the RCIA process at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Washington, DC. She is a member of the North American Academy of Liturgy and has written on various topics related to liturgy.

This book offers solid insights into the process of Christian initiation for adults and children, accompanied by a wealth of practical questions and suggestions to help parish RCIA teams guide children and teens on the path to conversion and faith. Readers might start with Chapter 4 (a gem in itself) to get a solid grasp of the goal and process of initiation and then go to the beginning and work through each stage of the RCIA. Anyone working with young people seeking to join the Catholic Church and celebrate the sacraments of initiation will find this book quite helpful.
Fr. Lawrence E. Mick, author RCIA: How Are We Doing?, is a priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati
