Grades 3 - 8
We have a loving and welcoming process at Padre Serra through which children 6 years of age and older are prepared to be received into the Church.
Infants and very young children are baptized based on the faith of their parents, godparents and the community. But school-age children, capable of having a faith of their own, are initiated through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) process, adapted for children.
Children new to the process meet on Monday afternoons, starting in September, to begin learning about the Bible, Jesus, the Church, prayer, and how God is acting in their lives. They participate in some of the Faith Formation activities with the baptized children in the parish and gradually learn what it means to be a Catholic Christian.
Family members, especially parents, are encouraged to participate as much as possible in their child's journey to the sacraments. It is a wonderful experience for the whole family which integrates them into the life of the parish.
If you have a child six years or older who is not baptized or was baptized in another Christian tradition, please contact Catherine Shadduck for any questions or to register: email@example.com or (805) 482·6417 ext 331.
