This program is for children who are seven years and older, who need baptism or are considering becoming Catholic. It usually takes two years for them to prepare for their sacrament(s) and this program is often very customized.
We place high priority on the child's individual faith journey and providing them with clear church teaching, community experiences, and prayer. Since this is usually a smaller group, we often overlap their classes with the programs of other children their age. That way they become more connected with the larger community of St. Stephens' children.
2nd - 4th graders: Meet Wednesday nights, 5:55-7:15, starting in the church.
Their schedule matches the K-4 Wednesday night schedule.
5th - 6th graders: Meet Sunday nights, 6:45-8:15 in downstairs classroom 128/129.
Their program meets as part of Connections.
To get started:
Call our office to setup the plan for your child's sacraments. For 5th and 6th graders, you can also just 'show-up' at Sunday night Connections class, and we'll take it from there!
You do not have to wait for the start of a new year to begin the process. Contact the office at any time at 253-631-6175.
