Rite of Christian Initiation for Children
Do you have a child or grandchild that is between the ages of 7-11 that has not been baptized? Or is beyond 2nd grade and in need of First Communion or Confirmation?
RCIA for Children is the process by which these children are prepared for the reception of these Sacraments.
Classes for the RCIA for Children program are held during our Family Catechesis program, which meets twice per month at Most Holy Trinity Church in Saco after the 8:30am Sunday Mass. The Family Catechesis program includes a session for parents while the children go to their respective grades. Parents of children in the RCIA for Children program are expected to stay for the adult session as well.
*For Children in the 2nd Grade; Please Note: Good Shepherd Parish requires children to attend Faith Formation classes for two consecutive years in order to receive the Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Communion and Confirmation.
