The Rite of Christian Initiation adapted for Children and Teens (RCIA C/T)

It is not too late to bring your child or teen to know Jesus through the graces received in the Sacraments of Baptism in the Catholic faith, First Holy Communion, Confirmation and First Reconciliation!


If you have children ages 7 - 17 who desire to learn more about the Catholic faith, we invite you to contact Vicki Arndt to schedule an initial meeting. At this meeting, you will learn about The Rite of Christian Initiation adapted for Children and Teens process. We offer classes on Sunday mornings to accommodate Mass attendance.


The objective of these classes is to bring the students into a personal relationship with Christ through prayer, attending Mass, knowing Christ by His mission, His Church, and His Sacraments at their respective grade level, and gradually bring them, together with their family, into a more participatory role within the universal Church and within the parish family of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church. We desire to foster a unique and common family bond knowing we all belong to the same One Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. This is our Catholic heritage, this is our Faith! Please call today and allow me to walk with you and your child or teen as they discover the grace that awaits them from Our Savior, Our Lord, Jesus Christ!
