The Right of Christian Initiation for Children (R.C.I.C.) is a beautiful process of welcoming children into the Catholic faith. Christian Initiation for children follows the model of the adult process. There are various steps and rites within the process that the children follow on their faith journey, coming to know and learn of God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit through the Scriptures and teachings of the Church.
Christian Initiation is intended for those children who have not been baptized and have reached the age of reason (7 years). This is a gradual process that takes place within the community of the faithful.
