The Christian Initiation of Children and Youth

THE CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF CHILDREN AND YOUTH  in grades 4th-12th who have never been baptized celebrate the initiation sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.  This formation process is also for children or youth baptized but not in the Catholic faith.

Please note that children who were baptized Catholic but did not celebrate First Holy Communion in second grade participate in a different program called Seekers.

OUTLINE OF THE INITIATION PROCESS is the same as the outline for the Adult Initiation process.


Families are required to be registered in the parish, having completed a parish registration before completing the online enrollment. Online parish registration can be completed here. Parish Registration packets are also available after Mass or during the week from the parish office window under the welcome banner.

One can inquire about the process any time of the year, however enrollment in the 2017-2018 group closes in mid-September. There is a fee for this program. Student enrollment for RCIA and Seekers is completed online.

After completing the online enrollment, the next step in the process is an interview with Gloria Kennerty, RCIA Coordinator. Contact Gloria at or by phone 770-963-8992 ext. 219.

Please note that one parent must attend the parent session while the child is in class.
