Baptism, First Eucharist and Confirmation

RCIA means Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and it is a Catholic program for those seeking to be Baptized or receive Eucharist for the first time. Those wishing to be Confirmed have already been baptized and received Eucharist.

The celebrations of Baptism, First Eucharist and Confirmation will take place Spring 2020!

Interested in receiving one of these sacraments? Perhaps this is the year for you!

Are you...

  • Interested in Baptism for your child?
  • Looking to receive your First Communion? 
  • Would you like to be Confirmed?
  • Looking for the Sacrament of Reconciliation ("Confession")? It is available all year round.
  • Preparing for a Catholic wedding and Marriage?
  • Thinking about becoming a Catholic?

If any of these are of interest to you, please contact Gail Gresser in the Campus Ministry office at (310) 954-4126. She will help you explore what is best for you, at your own pace, and without any pressure.

Are there meetings and events that I attend?

Doheny and Chalon students seeking Baptism and First Communion meet on a regular basis at the Chalon campus with Gail Gresser or Laura Gomez at a time convenient for both of you.

Doheny and Chalon students seeking Confirmation meet weekly. Time and location are TBA. Regular attendance at these meetings is important to be fully prepared for this sacrament. There is also a retreat in the spring.

On Sundays, students preparing for these sacraments are asked to participate in a parish community for Mass or to attend the Sunday evening Mass at Chalon at 7 p.m.

When will I receive these sacraments?

At the Mount, the Mass where you are baptized, given First Eucharist or Confirmed, is generally on the Sunday after Easter. The next celebration will be in the Spring 2020.
