RCIC (Rite of Christian Initiation for Children)
RCIC is for children beyond the 2nd grade. They fall in one of three general categories:
- They have not been baptized.
- They were baptized in another faith tradition, but their parents wish them to enter into the faith and sacramental life of the Church through Reconciliation and Eucharist, and Confirmation
- They were baptized Catholic, but have not received formal instruction in the faith and missed the reception of one of the sacraments at the usual time.
- Classes start in Fall, contact Tim.
Any child 3rd grade through 8th grade that needs to receive the sacraments of First Communion and confirmation please contact Tim McDonald at 259-4350 or tmcdonald@stbernardblgsorg.
Jr. High and High School age and Adults needing sacraments contact: Roy Brown at email@example.com or Brian Shea at firstname.lastname@example.org
