Hi, guys —

My husband is Catholic and we married in the Catholic Church so our sons were baptized as such. Our 10 year old son has not received his First Holy Communion.

  • How will he go about doing this?

I am in the process of joining the Church now.

  • Will he have to go through RCIA like I am?

This site is very informative!

Thank you!

GonnaBeCatholic —

At age 10, he can join the regular parish First Communion class, or he can join a special children's RCIA, if your parish has one, and if he wants to. For instance, he may want to if the children's First Communion class is mostly younger children — although, from what I see, many older children attend those classes also.
