Sacramental Faith Formation

Sacramental Preparation

Sacramental Preparation is a program for children in elementary school who are preparing to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the Sacrament of First Communion. 

Elementary Faith Formation

Elementary Faith Formation is for baptized children in elementary school who are continuing their catechetical instruction in preparation for their Holy Communion.  These classes are focused on deepening the child's understanding of the Catholic Faith and developing the child's sense of solidarity with the Catholic Church at large.

 

Rite of Christian Initiation for Children (R.C.I.C.)

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Children is a program for children who are 7 years or older and need to be baptized. Canon Law of the Catholic Church requires that children who have reached the age of reason (7 years old) go through catechetical formation in order to receive the Sacrament of Baptism.

 

Expectations and Requirements

 

First Communion Program requires 2 years of Religious Education.

 

Sacramental Preparation is for students who have not received Holy Eucharist and are in grades 3- 12 and RCIC is for students who have not received Baptism.

 

Only students who have provided proof of receiving catechesis for a full year prior to enrollment will be admitted into these programs.

 

If the child did not complete one full year, they will be placed in a class according to their grade level before being placed in Sacramental Preparation or RCIC.

 

If student is absent they will have to attend a Saturday Make Up Day.  Absences and tardies will be monitored.  If a child is absent a phone call will be made on Monday to dind out why the child was not in class.  If the child is tardy a call will be made to the parent.  Excessive absences or tardies can cause dismissal of the child from class
