This sacrament is celebrated by children enrolled in the regular Religious Education program and who are in the 2nd grade. A child must have completed a year of 1st grade religion to be eligible. Children in 3rd grade who have not received these sacraments will be combined with the 2nd grade for instruction. Children in 4th through 8th grade need to enroll in Rite of Christian Initiation of Children classes (RCIC) as well as regular religion classes to prepare to receive the sacraments. Children in older grades need to enroll in the RCIC classes. Enrollment forms will be available beginning of August.
