We are happy to welcome children who are 7 years of age or older* and have never been baptized into our RCIA Adapted for Children program!
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the norm for initiation of all adults; it applies also to children of catechetical age (generally age seven) since under our Code of Canon Law they attain the status of adults at the age of reason in regard to sacraments of initiation. (RCIA 18) Thus, any unbaptized child over the age of reason, who desires to become Catholic participates in the Christian Initiation process which leads them to the celebration of the three Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist (Holy Communion). The RCIA process is adapted to meet the specific needs of children and youth.
Parents attend the classes with their child(ren) and children will also attend their grade-level faith formation classes and Sacramental Preparation sessions. Directions for registration are available at this link.
For more information, please make an appointment to see our pastor by calling the front office, (979) 693-6994, or contact our Coordinator of Children's Ministries.
*For children who are 6 years of age or younger and have never been baptized, parents should schedule an appointment with our pastor and also register online for the Baptism Class and their child's grade level of faith formation class (PreK 3 & 4 - 6th grade).
