Learn more about becoming Catholic

Interested in the Catholic Faith? Whether you are Baptized or not, are just starting to learn about the Catholic Church or have looked into joining the Church for years, we welcome you! Catholics enter into full communion though the Sacraments of Baptism, Holy Eucharist, and Confirmation. Baptized Catholics who have been away from the Church or have not received these Sacraments are welcome to join our classes as well. Our next class begins September 11th and will meet Tuesdays at 7pm. All are welcome to attend. Please contact the Parish Office at (630) 462-5000 to register.

Young Adult Prayer & Social

All young adults are welcome to join us each Wednesday night for prayer and social beginning with Adoration at 6pm in the Adoration chapel. Afterwards we socialize at a nearby restaurant for coffee/tea/dessert! We will walk over around 7pm as a group following the Holy Hour as our socialization location will rotate on a weekly basis. For more information, please contact Emily at emily.piszykfigeroa@gmail.com
