Rite of Christian Initiation for Teens
RCITeens is a 2-year program which aims at helping teens become fully initiated Catholics.
This program is for:
- Children in 7th grade or older who have not been in or have not attended the standard sequence of religion classes and are in need of sacraments.
- Teens who have never been baptized or are from another religious faith and are interested in exploring the possibility of becoming a Catholic.
Similar to the adult program, the participants meet in small groups weekly in the Faith Formation office or other designated area in the Parish hall.
Year 1 is an introductory year, exploring the Roman Catholic Faith, its traditions, practices, and beliefs.
Year 2 focuses on the sacraments and their reception.
Confirmation can be celebrated with the teens who receive the sacrament in the 9th grade (usually in October). You can also be confirmed by the pastor on Pentecost Sunday. We are always ready to meet the needs of you and your family.
