Does Eastern Catholicism have RCIA?

Does EC have RCIA for new converts?

If so…How about the rite of dismissal before the Liiturgy of the Eucharist?

Is the Eucharist leaven or unleaven?

There is not a formal, standardized program for conversion, such as RCIA. Instruction is usually done on an individual basis. Our liturgy does contain a dismissal of catechumens, but I’ve never seen it done.
Leavened bread is used for the Eucharist.


Thanks. Just the info I was looking for.
