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 attend 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 already completed a year of Faith Formation and you did NOT receive a registration link, please contact Mary Beale firstname.lastname@example.org for registration.
Once you are enrolled for the RCIA for Children class, your child will attend the 9:00 AM mass on Sundays. During mass they will be dismissed after the homily (around 9:30) for Breaking Open the Word (BOW). After Breaking Open the Word they will 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 will attend the Confirmation Program, which meets on Wednesday Nights, instead of the Sunday classes.
If your child isn't baptized, then they will enter the Catholic Church at the
Easter Vigil Mass, March 31st 2018.
If your child was baptized in a different Christian denomination, they will be received into the fullness of the Catholic Church on the Feast of Divine Mercy Sunday, April 8th, 2018.
