RCIC – Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults, Adapted for Children

Our program for students aged 3rd grade and up that are either unbaptized or are delayed in receiving the sacraments of First Communion and/or Confirmation. This is a two-year process with different programs and requirements depending on age and year.

What is RCIC? The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults Adapted for Children, or as we refer to it, RCIC is a program developed to help introduce the faith to our students who are entering into formation later than the 2nd grade.

Our Goal: To give the students a context of basic knowledge about their faith and help them deepen their personal relationship with Christ while preparing them to receive the sacraments they have missed. RCIC is a two-year program.
