Preparation for Baptism
Teens who are NOT BAPTIZED prepare for Baptism, Confirmation, and 1St Communion through RCIC (Rite of Christian Initiation for Children). please contact the Director of Family Formation, Mary Jane Choi, at email@example.com or 480-279-6737 ext 214.
1st Reconciliation and 1st Communion
In the Diocese of Phoenix, Baptized children normally receive the Sacraments of 1st Reconciliation, Confirmation and 1st Communion in the 2nd and 3rd Grade.
There are circumstances where children may have not had the opportunity to go through sacrament preparation and the following are the programs we provide in alignment with the Restored Order that are outside of Elementary School.
This order differs from the order in most other dioceses where Confirmation is done separately several years after 1st Communion. For further explanation, please click on the following link: The Restored Order of Sacraments of Initiation - Diocese of Phoenix.
If your teen is in need of receiving the Sacraments of Reconciliation or 1st Holy Communion please contact the Director of Family Formation, Mary Jane Choi, firstname.lastname@example.org or 480-279-6737 ext 214.
If your teen is in need of receiving Confirmation ONLY please register at the bottom. If there are any questions regarding Confirmation Classes please contact Lou Martinez at email@example.com or 480-279-6737 ext 209.
