Children over the age of 7 who have not been baptized need to enter into the Church through a special program called RCIA for children. They are offered classes meant to introduce them to the Catholic Church and then receive the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation all together at the Easter Vigil in the spring. Children who have been raised in another religious tradition but having a desire to enter the Catholic Church should also consider joining the RCIA for children program.
Please contact the Faith Formation office for more information at 402-330-1889.
If you answered "YES" to any of these questions, then take a look at the St. Wenceslaus RCIA process!
The RCIA (the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is a process for those interested in learning more about the Catholic faith and considering membership in the Catholic Church. If you are interested, we would like to journey with you in this process. Sponsors, fully initiated Catholics in good standing with the Church, are also needed to serve as companions to those who wish to become Catholic.
RCIA classes are held weekly and over the course of several months those who attend the RCIA classes are educated on what the Catholic Church believes and are given the opportunity to ask question about those beliefs.
For families with children entering the Church as well, please keep reading for Chrildren's RCIA.
Throughout the class there are guest speakers, below is one of our nights about the Mass:
