This is a five-week class that discusses the rites themselves and is held in the spring prior to Baptism, Holy Communion, and Confirmation. The classes offer similar content but are geared to different age groups. Please sign-up for Children (age 7 to 15) or Adults (age 16 and up.) Both classes are held at CB. Children should also enroll in our K-8 religious education program and adults in Alpha. No fee.
