RCIA as Young Adult Movement? PDF Print E-mail

According to the CARA survey:

16% of US Catholics entered the Church after infancy. 8% as children (presumably some of these are being raised Catholic and are simply "late" baptisms but the majority would be entering from another background with their parent(s); 1% as teens, 7% as adults - 75% of whom entered through an RCIA process.

Very interesting: 48% of those who entered as adults did so as young adults between the ages of 18 and 29. Connect that with the Pew Survey findings that probably a majority of US adults reevaluate the faith in which they were raised as children and choose another one as adults. Pew did not, to my knowledge, ask at what age that re-evaluation took place but young adulthood would be an obvious place for it to happen.

So roughly 2/3 of those who enter the Church after infancy do so before age 30.

Looking at RCIA as a young adult movement that is especially meaningful in light of the apparent American norm of reevaluating spirituality and religious beliefs in adulthood. Lots of intriguing implications.

It certainly was true for me and my circle of friends.

When the Canadian government established a series of entomological laboratories during the 1910s, crop protection was a domain where provincial governments were already busy providing technical support to local agricultural associations. The establishment of regional laboratories resulted from the adoption of the Destructive Insect and Pest Act in 1910, legislation that portrayed insect outbreaks as an interprovincial or an international problem under federal jurisdiction. The natural order conceptualized by federal scientists and legalized by the Canadian Parliament initiated a process of centralization. As the knowledge produced by the federal scientists reinforced representation of natural phenomena that legitimated their involvement across the national territory, the federal government concurrently achieved a political order by which it exerted its power over both nature and nation.
