Children’s Catechumenate

This class helps children of catechetical age to prepare for the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation, or Eucharist.

This class is intended for children between the ages of 7 and 13 who:

  • have not been baptized, or
  • were baptized in another Christian denomination and would like to join the Catholic Church, or
  • were baptized Catholic but have not received any religious education.

Note: The Children’s Catechumenate does not replace regular religious education classes. If your child was baptized Catholic, is in the second or third grade, but has not yet had religious education, he/she will be placed in another class. Also, those who complete the Catechumenate program are highly encouraged to attend Religious Education classes with their peers. Every situation is unique; please call the Religious Education Office 248-689-8380, Ext. 111 for a discussion.
