Rite of Christian Initiation with children is suited for students who are older than second grade and have not yet received the Sacrament(s) of Reconciliation or Holy Eucharist. This program will prepare them for the reception of these Sacraments.
They will also participate in Sacramental Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. Please click on the links below for information on preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. These children will be received into the Church, and receive their First Holy Communion at Easter. Students will join the Faith Formation Program at their grade level following the process. The parents of these students should contact the Faith Formation Office (219-926-1282) for more information.
