Sequence of Initiation of Unbaptized or Baptized Children

Clarification on the Sequence of Initiation of Unbaptized or Baptized Children who have reached Catechetical Age.

Clarification on the Sequence of Initiation of Unbaptized or Baptized Children who have reached Catechetical Age.

Children of catechetical age who have not been baptized are considered for the purpose of Christian initiation to be adults (c. 852.1). They, therefore, are to receive the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and Eucharist together with older catechumens (c. 866 and RCIA, National Statutes for the Catechumenate, no 18). In addition, baptized (Catholic or in another Christian  tradition) children of, and beyond the age of reason should be prepared for Reconciliation and Eucharist, but not Confirmation. These individuals should enter into the normal sacramental choreography of children in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.
