Baptismal Preparation and RCIA

Preparing for the Sacrament of Baptism is a joy for the Catholic Faith Community.  Staff members meet with families asking for Baptism for their child to welcome them and help them prepare for this important sacrament.  For those who are first time parents, there are 3 meetings that are part of the process of preparation: an initial “intake” session, often done in a group with other parents; a formal presentation on the sacrament for those first time parents; and a follow-up session for all those who have had a child baptized to evaluate the process and consider ways to share their faith with their child as they grow.

For children aged 7 and older, we have an adapted RCIA program to meet the needs of children. We then have a program for teens and adults. We invite you to learn more by clicking on one of the following links.
