However, adults may prepare for baptism at the Basilica. This time of preparation is known as “catechumenate”. It lasts for around two years, after which catechumens receive the three sacraments of initiation to the Christian life (Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Communion) on Easter night. The preparation is made with the priests of the Basilica and the Benedictine Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Montmartre.
