The Greek word Catechesis means 'to echo the teaching'. "Catechesis is nothing other than the process of transmitting the Gospel, as the Christian community has received it, understands it, celebrates it, lives it and communicates it in many ways." (General Directory for Catechesis #105)

We are so excited to journey with you and your child through the Rite of Christian Initiation for Children.

If your child missed any of the following sacraments: Baptism, First Reconciliation, First Communion or Confirmation, or missed some years of faith formation, we are happy to journey with them towards falling in love with Christ and His Church.

 
 

All RCIC parents are required to register their child with Holy Spirit, contact Kaitlyn Callahan to assess what is necessary for your child, and attend additional sacramental preparation parent classes and events.

What does the RCIC process look like at Holy Spirit?

  1. You will have an introductory meeting with Kaitlyn Callahan.
  2. You will attend RCIC classes on one Wednesday evening of the month (see calendar).
  3. Meet with Kaitlyn and/or other clergy members to assess readiness to receive the Sacrament.
  4. Candidates in the program are also encouraged to attend faith formation with their class (example: EDGE, Life Teen, 2nd grade First Communion sacramental prep) and have our RCIC sessions as a supplement to receiving the sacraments quicker.
  5. Children will receive supplemental materials to help them grow in their faith.
