Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Parish

RCIC (Rite of Christian Initiation for Children)

RCIC track

a pre-requisite for Growing Disciples



In our RCIC track, children will strengthen their friendship with Jesus, learn to pray, read Scripture, and grow in virtue.

Students will enter into a Growing Disciples class for the 2nd year of preparation after they complete RCIC (registration for Growing Disciples class will be next summer). 
They will receive all 3 of their Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Communion) at the Easter Vigil in the Spring of 2022.



This year, our RCIC class will be an at-home program. We are unable to offer an in-person option for this program at this time.


We will utilize digital curriculum this year to ensure quality formation for all students.




Registration open through 1/30/2021 9:59 PM Mountain Time (US & Canada)

Our program begins the week of September 21st. Parents are asked to attend an information and orientation meeting Monday, September 14th at 6PM via Zoom. If this date and time does not work for you please contact Adrienne Merritt.


Family Nights - Parents are asked to participate in their child's faith journey in a special way. During these sessions, families will have an opportunity to explore the faith together through activities and lessons. No preparation is necessary, just show up with your child(ren) and enjoy!

All Sacramental prep families (whether doing the in-person or at-home model) are asked to attend these in-person events periodically throughout the year. Alternative and online family nights will be offered. If you are not comfortable attending in-person events, please speak with Adrienne to make alternative arrangements ahead of time.



Registration is $75* for Immaculate Heart of Mary families


Registration is $125* for families from another Parish


*A $10 late fee will be assessed to each participant who is registered after Sept 15th due to increased administrative needs


It would be a blessing to help your child receive the grace of the Sacraments, however, if you are from another parish please consider attending your own parish for Sacramental Prep.


If you are in need of financial assistance, please contact Rachel Padilla at - We never want financial need to stand in the way of students participating in our programs!
