Children who are not baptized and are 7 years or older enter a process for their own faith journey.RCIA adapted for children is a part of the process of the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults.They attend classes on Sunday mornings to grow in knowledge of their faith and develop a relationship with Jesus Christ.
During their two year journey, the children participate in several Rites. At the Easter Vigil, these children will be Baptized, Confirmed and receive Holy Communion along with other adults seeking full initiation into the Church.
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
RCIA is the journey of those inquiring into being received into the Catholic Church through the initiation process of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. This process provides an opportunity for adults to learn about the faith in a way that models the early church. If an individual wishes to explore the Catholic Church, or wishes to complete their initiation into the Church by receiving the sacraments of Eucharist and/or Confirmation, they are invited to journey in their faith along with the RCIA team.
