RCIA - weekly, starting September 17, 7-9PM
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults is the process by which one becomes a fully initiated member of the Catholic Church. Participants can be those who are unbaptized and have no Christian background, those who were baptized and raised in other Christian communities, or even Catholics who have not completed their Sacraments of Initiation (Confirmation and/or Eucharist). The process is one of a total conversion of self to the person of Jesus Christ. If you or your loved one would like more information, or would like to register for RCIA, please contact John Ellison, Director of Adult Formation or at 630-462-5045.
