Adults preparing to become Catholics participate in a faith formation program that lasts, depending on needs, from six months to over a year. They normally celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil. Contact: rectory
Children are enrolled in a faith formation program for at least two years either in the Parish School or the Religious Education Program on Sundays, in preparation for the Sacraments at Easter time. Parents and families are involved in this process, known as the Rite of Christian Initiation of Children (RCIC).
Requirements for registering:
Copy of Baptismal Certificate (If child is new to program)
Copy of Report card or letter from former Parish (If student is transferring from another parish program)
Yearly Fees (To be paid when registering)
$100 = One child
$150 = Two or more children
$ 70 for Kindergarten
Placement into level is as follows:
Children who are baptized and are 6 years old (first grade in public school) will be placed in level 1.
Children who are 7 years old or older and who are baptized, and are entering the program for the first time will be enrolled in the Introduction to Faith class. The student’s comprehension of our faith will determine when the child is ready for the next grade level.
Any child transferring from another Religious Education program will need to bring a letter or report card from that parish in order to be placed in the correct level.
Children who are 8 years old and are not baptized will be enrolled in a three year program (RCIC) Rite of Christian Initiation for Children.
Children who are in High School and are missing any Sacrament will be placed in the (RCIA) Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults.
