Rite of Christian Initiation for Children (RCIC)

RCIC for children is the process through which children are brought into full membership in the Catholic Church. Throughout the process of initiation, those seeking membership explore and share their own stories of faith as well as learn more about the Catholic way of life. RCIC for children begins by registering children 6-12 years of age that have not been baptized.

Here at St Francis we recognize this area as unique, in that there is a considerable number of families being transferred in and out of the area and from all over the country. We recognize that other dioceses may prepare children for the sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation at different ages. Moving from one parish to another can be difficult. Regardless of whether your child has been baptized at another church, they have not be catechized, or they have been set back for some reason, we are here to help! Don’t hesitate to contact us and let us know how we can help you.
