The Rite of Christian Initiation



The process of preparing to enter into full communion with the Church through the Rite of 
Christian Initiation for Children and Teens is a special moment in a person's life. God is calling 
you closer to him and is waiting to give you the gift of his grace through the Sacraments of 
Baptism, Communion and Confirmation. 
Along with your parents, the Priests, catechists and the Faith Formation Office are here to walk 
with you on this spiritual journey. During this time of preparation, we invite you and your family 
to delve further into your faith, to seek and ask for a deeper relationship with Christ. The St. 
Martin’s Faith Community will work with you to provide opportunities for growth and encounter 
in order to welcome you fully and participate in the life of faith of the Church.
