Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist)
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA): Adults (and children 7 years old and above) who are unbaptized or baptized in another Christian denomination, and who wish to become sacramental participants in the Catholic Church through Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist are invited to contact Mark Hoggard.
Sacrament of Baptism: Parents seeking Baptism for a child under the age of 7 must have completed our parish registration process and attended a parent information session prior to the Baptism of their child. Call Toshia Bushorefor more information. Children who are age 7 or older who are not baptized or who are baptized in another Christian denomination enter into a catechumenate process similar to that celebrated by adults. Parents of these children should contact Mark Hoggard.
Sacrament of Confirmation: In the Diocese of Richmond, preparation begins in grade 10 or above. For this year's preparation schedule and registration, click HERE.
First Eucharist (Communion)
In the Diocese of Richmond, First Eucharist is typically prepared for and first celebrated in the second grade or later. Preparation for First Reconciliation (Penance) must take place before preparation for First Eucharist. For this year's preparation schedule and registration, click HERE. Children preparing for these sacraments are enrolled in Generations of Faith. Contact Terry Allen.
