SPOTLIGHT ON: Christian Initiation for Children

CIC is a sacramental preparation program for older children (4th grade and up) who have not been baptized, made their first Reconciliation or received their first Holy Communion.  The program involves home study with a parent or guardian as well as attendance once a month, October through April, at CIC class.  The children are taught a basic understanding of their faith and their role as Catholic Christians.  Students also must regularly attend Wednesday night religious education classes (or attend Christ the King School) simultaneously with the CIC program.

If you would like more information about Christian Initiation for Children,  please call Michelle Portsch at the parish office (946-1675).
