Children's Catechumenate classes begin Jan. 6, 2019.
Children’s Catechumenate consists of four classes on Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, and Jesus. These classes are held four consecutive Sundays in either October or January, with a make-up session in March. Children ages 7-17 must attend all four classes. Children ages 2-6 need only attend the class on baptism with a parent or guardian. All children must be enrolled prior to attending classes.
Children ages 7 and older, who wish to be baptized, receive all the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist) at the same Mass.
Children ages 4 and older should also be attending CCD classes, if they are not enrolled at Catholic Central. CCD classes meet in the St. Raphael Parish Center on Sundays at 9:00-10:10 a.m.
