Sacraments & RCIA


"Behold, I am with you always"

When Christ ascended into heaven his presence on earth continued in the Church--its teaching, its shepherds, and its sacraments. Christ instituted the sacraments so that the Church might pour forth the divine life of God, blessing important moments in our lives and drawing us closer to God.

Apart from the regular schedule of Mass and reconciliation, Chapel Ministries offers:

Infant Baptism

Students, faculty, staff, and alumni (special permission needed) who wish to have a new infant baptized in Christ the King Chapel should contact the Chapel Office. Due to the limited number of baptisms on campus, the Infant Baptism Preparation Program is conducted on an as-needed basis.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

Our RCIA program helps interested students, faculty, and staff to learn more about the Catholic Church and prepare to receive the sacraments of initiation--baptism, Eucharist, and confirmation.

Sessions generally begin in September, with those who are ready being received into the Church at the Easter Vigil. However the process may take more than one year.

RCIA sessions are held Sunday evenings from 6:00-8:00 p.m. If interested, contact Professor Scott Sollom at 284-5315, or at ssollom@franciscan.edu.

Confirmation

Students, faculty, and staff who were baptized in the Catholic Church but who have not yet been confirmed can prepare for confirmation within the campus RCIA program (see above).

Matrimony

The Marriage Preparation Program is available to students, faculty, and staff who are engaged and ready to prepare for marriage. Couples interested in registering for the Marriage Preparation Program must do so in Christ the King Chapel. Complete details and resources are available on our Marriage Preparation pages.
