In-person Event

The RCIA Adapted for Children
December 4, 2021
8:30 AM – 5:00 PM ET

Cathedral High School
350 East 56th St
New York NY 10022

Children of varying ages and a wide range of faith development come to us seeking Christian initiation.  How do we minister to these children and their families?  What is the best way to offer each child appropriate catechesis and formation in Christian life?  How do we receive children who have been baptized in other Christian traditions into the full communion of the Catholic Church?

Participants will deepen their understanding of the Church's vision of the baptismal catechumenate as outlined in Part II.1 of the RCIA ritual text (RCIA adapted for children of catechetical age).
