Many Catholics feel like they “graduated” from their Catholic education if they went to Catholic Grade School or High School; some even feel that way after receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. At Sacred Heart, our parish mission reminds us that we are life-long learners in our faith development. There will never come a time when we know everything there is to know about God and the way God acts in this world. There will never come a time when we have our own Christian lives completely figured out and know exactly how to act and what to choose in every situation. Our Christian education continues until the day we die. “For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face.” 1 Corinthians 13:12.
RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which people become members of the Roman Catholic Church. The RCIA is intended for those who were baptized Catholic and did not receive the Sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation, those who were baptized in another Christian tradition and seek full communion of the Catholic Church, those not baptized who seek Christian initiation or for Catholics who would like an update in the understanding of the Catholic Faith. Please contact Bunny Brouillard at 763-537-4561 ext. 105, or e-mail [email protected].
RCIA for Children
The Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) for Children is a special program for children, ages 7 to 14 who have not been baptized, have not been catechized in the Catholic Faith or who are coming from another Faith Tradition. Once a child has reached the age of 7, the Church requires that he or she then follows the preparation guidelines for RCIA, although in an age-appropriate manner. There is no cost for preparation for the sacraments in the Catholic Church. Please contact Bunny Brouillard at 763-537-4561 ext. 105, or e-mail at [email protected].
