What is RCIC?

RCIC stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation for Children. The program is offered for children in 3rd - 9th Grade who have not received the Sacraments of Baptism, First Reconciliation and/or First Communion. This program educates the children about the origins and importance of the Sacraments they are to receive, as well how to receive them.

First Reconciliation is held on a Saturday in January. First Communion is held in May on Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend.

In 2023, First Reconciliation will be on January 21st at 10:00 AM. First Communion is on May 13th at 11:00 AM.
