The Rite of Christian Initiation of Children (RCIC) is designed for children age 7 and over who:
-Have never been baptized OR
-Have been baptized in another Christian religion OR
-Have been baptized Catholic but have not received the sacraments of First Eucharist and/or Confirmation
The RCIC is a process and not a specific program. The process generally begins in early fall of each year and usually culminates with full initiation into the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil that following spring. However, as it is a process, it can take a little longer depending on the child and family and is evaluated on an individual basis.
For information about the RCIC process for your child, or to have a detailed conversation about the process, please contact Rich Rasmussen, Youth and Pastoral Minister at 607-273-6121 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
