Becoming Catholic (OCIC)

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.”

– John 3:16


O.C.I.C., the Order of Christian Initiation for Children, is the amazing journey of entering into the fullness of the Catholic faith. We will help you to learn, grow, find community, and prepare for the fullness of life that God desires for us all! As Jesus promised, “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10)  Find this new, abundance of life in the O.C.I.C.!

Baptism for ages 7 years – 17 years, is done through the O.C.I.C. program. (Order of Christian Initiation for Children).
