What is Symbolon 1?


Symbolon 1, a 10-week course, is a practical introduction to the Catholic Christian faith. Symbolon 1 serves as:

  • the first and highly recommended phase of sacramental preparation for adults who need to be baptized, confirmed, and/or to make their First Communions in the Catholic Church;
  • a refresher course for Catholics returning to the Church after an absence from full practice; and
  • a refresher course for fully-initiated, practicing Catholics.

The second phase of the process for people preparing for any sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, First Communion), RCIA using Symbolon 2 begins January 2018.

Each class begins with a light meal provided by the parish, followed by video presentations and discussions. Each participant will receive a workbook with space for notes.
