Congratulations! You’re expecting a new little one into your family or you’re already proud parents of a newborn! Perhaps you’re new to the area and have yet to have your child baptized. Regardless of your situation, while scheduling for your childbirth classes, adjusting to the challenges of raising a newborn or making a new home for your family, now is the ideal time to focus on your Baptismal preparation classes too. We welcome you to our faith community and are happy to assist you in baptizing your child!

Baptism classes are a set of three sessions held in one of the lower social hall classrooms at St. Madeleine Sophie Catholic Church, Sunday afternoon from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. Classes are usually held September, January,  and March.

Sacramental Preparation for children

Reconciliation (Penance, Confession) – Second Grade

Special catechesis around the subject of making choices, forgiveness, and reconciliation is part of our broader First Eucharist preparation program.

First Communion (Eucharist)

Our First Eucharist and First Penance preparation programs includes materials, discussions and activities presented at the Whole Community Catechesis evenings.

RCIA adapted for Children

This program is modeled after and runs parallel to the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults). The process begins with the Rite of Welcoming and is designed for young people ages 8 to 16 years of age, who have not been baptized, or who are baptized in another faith tradition.  Email elaine@stmadsophie.org, voice mail: 425-747-6770 ext. 114.
