Child Registration form

RCIA-AC is for children who are not baptized Catholic and are 7years old or older.(you will be asked on the registration form if your child was baptized under a different faith).

Parents rest assured that we are not here to ask why your child was not baptized as an infant nor to pass judgment. Mrs. Delafosse, one of the RCIA coordinators, was not baptized until she was 9yrs old! So, you are not alone.

RCIA-AC is a journey where we partner with you to prepare your child to receive Jesus and become full members of the Catholic faith community through the sacraments of Baptism, 1st Holy Communion, and Confirmation.

You are your child’s first and MOST valuable catechist (teacher of the principles of the Catholic Faith). Since this is a partnership, parents are required to take an active role by attending weekly sessions with their children.

We recognize that each child is an individual and on a very personal faith journey. Therefore, each child, along with their family, is interviewed by a member(s) of the RCIA Team to determine their readiness. Based on this readiness, we work with parents to determine the estimated time it will take for your child/children to receive the sacraments of Baptism, 1st Holy Communion, and Confirmation. The average is 1-2 years. (We are a kid friendly office, so please feel free to bring your little ones.)

All 3 sacraments are received at one time during one single Mass. Yes, your child will be confirmed at the same time that they are baptized. Depending on the number of children receiving sacraments in a given year, the day and time of this Mass will change from year to year. It is traditionally done at the Easter Vigil but not always.
