Sacraments and Faith Formation
Religious Education & Faith Formation
Catechesis for children presents His teachings, His ministry, and the major events of His life. Children can begin to appreciate the parables of Jesus and capture glimpses of the Kingdom of God; they can learn more formal prayers; and they can commit brief passages of Sacred Scripture to memory. At Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall Military Catholic Community, we are committed to establishing a grounded foundation in our children’s Catholic faith. Please visit our CRE page to learn more about the program.

Are you thinking of joining the Catholic faith? Are you not sure yet and would just like some more info as you figure everything out? Are you already a Catholic but never received all your sacraments? The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is exactly what you’re looking for. If you’re an adult thinking about becoming Catholic, we want to walk with you! Check out our Evangelization and Faith Formation Resources or contact us.
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
The Church’s catechetical mission aims to help the faithful of all ages to grow in both human and Christian maturity, enriching the whole of life with the leaven of the Gospel. Consequently, appropriate goals and content will embrace all the faith dimensions of an adult life—for example, understanding and communicating the faith, skills needed for personal growth, the experience of family life, relationships, public service, and concern for the common good.
