The SACRAMENT of the ANOINTING of the SICK

SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION: FIRST PENANCE, FIRST HOLY COMMUNION, and CONFIRMATION
Children who will celebrate these Sacraments are expected to participate in religious education in all years of grammar school, either as students of Saint Catherine’s School or as students in the parish Religious Education Program. Proximate preparation for these sacraments takes place for all children of the parish in Sacramental Preparation programs, as specified.

RCIA: RITE of CHRISTIAN INITIATION of ADULTS
RCIA is the formational process for adults who seek sacraments in the Catholics Church either because they have never been Baptized, because they seek communion within the Catholic Church, or because they did not celebrate the sacraments of Reconciliation, Confirmation, and Eucharist in childhood.
