Any adult 19 years and older who desires Baptism, Eucharist and/or Confirmation may enroll. The process involves both Catechesis (weekly on Wednesday evenings) and Liturgical Celebrations (Sunday Mass).
The Catechesis is prepared and facilitated by a team of catechists, sponsors, priest(s), and coordinator.
Sunday Dismissals occur during 8:30 AM Mass each Sunday. We offer a time of faith sharing and reflection on the Scripture readings for that Sunday.
The Weekly Sessions involve Scripture reflection and discussion on various aspects of the Catholic faith and practice.
Two Retreat Days scheduled during the process enable candidates to reflect on the movement of the Spirit more deeply in their lives as well as to help them better prepare for celebrating the Rites. These are daytime only – not overnight.
Liturgical Celebrations include:
Rite of Welcome, Rite of Election, Scrutinies, and the Celebration of the Sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation.
The sponsor (or godparent) is a practicing Catholic, and who has received the sacraments of initiation: Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation. The sponsor should be a good role model of Catholic life and committed to support you during your journey of faith. You may elect a male or a female or one of each. He and/or she are expected to be present at the Easter Vigil.
