The Rite of Christian Initiation for Children is intended for children, not baptized as infants, who have attained the use of reason and are of catechetical age. Their formation follows the general pattern of the ordinary catechumenate as far as possible. They receive the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil, together with the older catechumens. Volunteers are welcome to attend and facilitate sessions.
