Youth Baptism

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults Adapted for Children/Youth

Children who have reached the age of 7 and have not been baptized are invited into the process of Christian initiation based on the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA.) This process will prepare young people and their families for the celebration of the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.

Children should be enrolled in the parish Religious Education program, or a Catholic school (parish or private) prior to beginning this preparation.
