Sacramental Preparation

Interested in becoming Catholic or completing your Sacraments of Initiation while at UP?  Then you've found the right page!  Through Campus Ministry, UP offers the opportunity for students to be baptized, receive their first Holy Communion, and be confirmed in the Catholic Church.  Sacramental Preparation processes vary from person to person and group to group.  Based on the needs of each year's RCIA and Confirmation Cohorts, we generally begin Catechetical Meetings in October, with preparation for RCIA culminating in the Easter Vigil and Confirmation during the Easter Season.  

If you are interested in joining one of these cohorts to explore a path toward full communion and sacramental presence in the Catholic Church, please contact Fr. Tim Weed, C.S.C. at or  You can also stop by his office in the Chapel of Christ the Teacher or call him at 503.943.8919.
