Sacramental Preparation

DoveSacramental catechesis is a spiritual journey that seeks to deepen faith in Jesus Christ and conversion to Christian living. It is an intense and immediate period of time where children, youth and adults are led to grow in faith through immersion in the mystery they are about to celebrate.

The Evangelization and Catechesis Team in the Office of Catholic Education seeks to provide parishes with assistance in designing models and processes for sacramental catechesis that emphasize its unique character. Such models are:

  • separate and distinct from regular catechetical programming
  • liturgically-based
  • inclusive of the parish community

Consultation is available for the sacraments of Baptism of Infants, Confirmation, Eucharist and Reconciliation. The Office of Worship, as well as the OCE, can provide assistance with the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and the RCIA Adapted for Children.
