Children’s Catechumenate


The Children’s Catechumenate is for children older than 8 years of age who have not yet been baptized or celebrated the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.  Families meet twice a month (except during Advent and Lent) for formation and education sessions.  The children then celebrate the sacraments at the Easter Vigil along with the adults who are part of the RCIA process.
