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).

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.
