Rite of Christian Initiation for CHILDREN

Children who have not been baptized or have been baptized in another Christian denomination, would take part in the RCIA for Children as they will either be baptized into the Catholic Church or make a Profession of Faith into the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil, and receive the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist.

The RCIA for Children is a process whereby the children are made to feel part of the parish family and learn about the Catholic faith. These children will attend the 9:00 am Mass on Sunday followed by a class in which they will explore and learn about the Catholic faith.  The RCIA (for Children) process is year-round.  Children should be enrolled as soon as they are ready to start.  There is not a specific begin date.

Five and six year olds who have never been baptized and would like to be baptized into the Catholic faith would attend a regular Kindergarten or 1st grade RE class, beginning in September. Parents would attend a baptism workshop and their child would be baptized at a scheduled time.

If you would like more information or would like to enroll your child in the RCIA for Children please contact Catherine Mays or Kris Fischer.
