We offer a preparation program for those of High School age. (Adult confirmation preparation is offered through the Catechumenate program). This program is offered every other year and includes a retreat.

The Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) is for those who were never baptized or baptized in a non Catholic church. This program is to better understand the Catholic faith, and is available for adults and children 7 years and older. Separate preparation is designed for both children and adults, but the same rite and rituals are observed.
