PREPARATION FOR FIRST EUCHARIST AND RECONCILIATION
Children over the age of seven, who have already been baptized, may take the next step in the Initiation process, accompanied by their families, and prepare for First Eucharist. Typically, the children are enrolled in the parish Elementary Faith Formation program beginning in 1st grade. During the student's second year (regardless of starting age, children must spend two years in preparation) First Eucharist is celebrated during the Easter season.
For older children (ages 7-14) who need preparation for the sacraments of Baptism and/or Eucharist and Reconciliation, we offer special
RCIA Adapted for Children
classes as part of our faith formation program.
Please note, there is a two year preparation requirement for First Eucharist, regarldess of the age a student starts preparation.
"The most effective catechetical program for adolescents are integrated into a comprehensive program of pastoral ministry for youth that includes catechesis, community life, evangelization, justice and service, leadership development, pastoral care, and prayer and worship. Such programs aim to empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today; to draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community; and to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person." (National Directory for Catechesis, p. 201)
