St. Raymond RCIT First Communion/Reconciliation Preparation for Grades 6-12

Welcome to the Sacramental Preparation for Teens at Saint Raymond’s, a program for our young people in grades 6th-12th to prepare them to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist!

RCIT is a two-year program. During their first year, the youth will attend the middle school EDGE ministry or the high school Confirmation program depending on their grade level.

During their second year the teens will continue to attend their youth program and have an additional twice a month RCIT class together with those specifically preparing for these Sacraments. RCIT meets on Tuesday evenings from 6:00-7:00pm with one of our catechists.

The teens will receive their first Reconciliation during our Advent class Reconciliation night. They will receive their first Holy Communion during spring of that second year. There is an additional sacramental fee for the RCIT program the second year the teen is registered.

Teens in our RCIT program are required to attend a retreat in their second year of formation.
