Infant Baptism (0 – 6 Years Old)

 

Infant Baptism is celebrated for children 6 years old and under. Parents must attend a preparation class and Godparents are strongly encouraged to attend this class before seeking this sacrament for their child. Baptism Preparation classes are offered approximately once-a-month on a Saturday from 8:45am-12:00pm. Classes are valid for 3 years. Our parish will need documentation of class completion at least one month prior to the Baptism ceremony. The cost for the preparation class is $10.

RCIA for Children (7-18 years old)

 

Rite of Christian Initiation adapted for Children. If your child is age 7 to 18 years old 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.

 

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.

 

Please note, if your child is either a Sophomore, Junior, or Senior 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.

RCIA/Initiation (18+ years old)

 

Are you interested in becoming Catholic? The process for becoming Catholic is called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), which is our formation process for adults who:

 

  • Have never been baptized.
  • Catholics who were baptized but have not celebrated all of their Sacraments of Initiation (Eucharist and Confirmation).
  • Those baptized in another Christian faith tradition who may be interested in becoming a Catholic. (maybe our other class, Inclusion, is right for you – this will be determined through the interview process).

 

This is the Catholic Church’s process to bring people, through study, spiritual growth and community, into the heart of the Kingdom of Heaven. Here at our parish we call it INITIATION.

 

If you are interested in becoming Catholic or completing your Sacraments as an Adult, please fill out the registration form, and we will set up an appointment to meet with you. After the interview, we will determine which class is the best path to help you receive your sacraments.
