The Religious Education Office at Good Shepherd Catholic Church provides Catechism Programs for children, adolescents and adults who are preparing for the Sacraments of Baptism, First Communion, and Confirmation.  

Our Catechism Program serves students from grades one through pre-sacrament highschool.  Confirmation preparation classes begin minimum seventh grade.

Communion and Confirmation preparation is minimum 2 years.

Rite of Christian Initiation for Children (RCIC) is a program for children who need all three Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Communion.  It is minimum three years - one year per sacrament.  At the end of the three years the child will receive Baptism, Confirmation and Communion in one ceremony at the Easter Vigil.    

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is the program for adults who need any or all three Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Communion.
