RCIA for Children (7-18 years old)
Rite of Christian Initiation adapted for Children. If your child is 7-years-old through 12th grade and needs to be baptized, they will be placed in our wonderful program, RCIA for Children. We require that the child attends at least one year of Faith Formation prior to entering into their year of RCIA for Children. If your child has not had any formation up to this point, please enroll them in a year of Faith Formation. If your child has completed a year of faith formation, please email Diane Czerniak to receive the Registration link.
AGE 7 THROUGH 8TH GRADE – RCIA for Children participants attend the 9:00am Mass on Sundays. During Mass they are dismissed after the homily (around 9:30) for Breaking Open the Word (BOW). After Breaking Open the Word, they attend their weekly RCIA for Children session until 11:15am.
9TH THROUGH 12TH GRADE – If your child is in High School and going through RCIA for Children, they attend the Teen Confirmation Program, which meets on Wednesday Nights, instead of the Sunday morning classes.
All of the children and teens will receive Baptism, First Holy Communion and Confirmation during the Easter Vigil Mass.
