Elementary Sunday Catechesis

Our pre-school and elementary program occurs on Sunday mornings.  On a rotated basis throughout the year school year, parents are expected to visit the classroom.  There are monthly parent sessions during formation. These sessions are led by Mark.  

 

First Sacraments

Children who are already baptized going into the 2nd grade or older and have completed one full year of Catechisis with 80% attendance rate are eligible to sign up for First Sacraments. Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist (Communion) is incorporated into the regular faith formation classes, with two half-day retreats and a rehearsal.  Parents are required to attend retreats and the rehearsal.  Parents of children who are registered for First Sacraments are to attend the two meetings for important information and updates.

Rite of Christian Initiation for Children (RCIC)

Children and teens between the ages of 7 and 17 who have not yet been baptized are eligible to sign up for RCIC.   The process for youth in this age range is different than an infant baptism.  Since youth 7 and older are considered to be in or beyond the age of reason, they are to follow a process that is similar to RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation).  At Holy Redeemer, we integrate the youth who are preparing for Baptism with regular Faith Formation sessions (Elementary, Middle, or High School Formation). Please see our Baptism page for information on how to sign up!

To register for any elementary programs, please contact Annie Cooper in the Faith Formation office at anniec@holyredeemervanc.org
