Religious Education & Sacramental Preparation

Religious Education & Sacramental Preparation

We offer religious education (RE) from Kindergarten to 9th Grade. We also provide sacramental preparation for adults who desire to become Catholic. The school year begins in September and ends in May.

Note the Church defines an adult as anyone over the age of seven with the use of reason (c. 852 §1). There are 2 paths for the sacramental preparation for those over the age of reason who wish to receive the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist): Rite of Christian Initiation for Children-RCIC (8-17 years old) & Rite of Christian Initiation for Adult-RCIA (18 years old and older).

Religious Education Classes are scheduled as follows:

Main Post Chapel at Schofield Barracks: Sundays from 0930 to1045.

Aliamanu Military Reservation Chapel: Sunday from 0945 to 1100.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

Are you thinking of joining the Catholic Church? Are you a Catholic who has not received your sacraments? The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process where you will learn about the Catholic faith, sacraments and practices. During the catechetical formation, you are free to ask questions about the Catholic Church. Our catechists will help you explore the beauty of our Church. The Reception into Full Communion is a process for already baptized Christians from another denominations…

Rite of Christian Initiation for Children (RCIC)

The RCIC is a process for unbaptized children (over the age of seven with the use of reason) who desire to join the Catholic Church. They will go through catechetical formation before they are to receive the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist) at Easter Vigil. Each student will need a sponsor, who will journey with them throughout the formation process. A sponsor must meet the requirements by the church.

Marriage

The Archbishop for the Military Services has established that the period of preparation prior to the celebration of marriage in the Archdiocese is 6 months. As the outline of the process below indicates, much work must be done at this time. The celebration of marriage is entrusted to the pastor of either Catholic party (c. 530, n. 4). Indeed, the permission of a Catholic party’s proper pastor is required if the marriage will not take place in his parish (c. 1115). For subjects of…

Reconciliation

Sacraments of Healing – We are still in our ‘earthly tent,’ subject to suffering, illness, and death. This new life as a child of God can be weakened and even lost by sin. The Lord Jesus Christ, the physician of our souls and bodies, who forgave the sins of the paralytic and restored him to bodily health, has willed that his Church continues, in the power of the Holy Spirit, his work of healing and salvation, even among her own…

WHAT IS A RELIGIOUS VOCATION? A vocation is a call from God to share intimately in His inner life of love. Out of His love, the Lord has created you— and you alone— for a specific mission.
