The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA): Primarily for adults who have not celebrated the sacrament of Baptism, also for adults who were Baptized in another Christian Denomination, and Catholics who have not been raised in the practice of the Faith. Parishioners are needed to serve as sponsors, catechists, hospitality ministers, and in other ways.

The Children’s Catechumenate: The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is adapted for children age 7 and older who are not baptized and whose parents consent to their desire to receive Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil after a series of group preparation sessions.
