Adult Faith
Formation

Becoming a Catholic

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process designed for adults who:

  • Are interested in joining the Catholic Church from another faith tradition
  • Have been baptized in the Catholic faith but have not received any other sacraments
  • Have been baptized in the Catholic faith but have been inactive and want to renew the practice of their faith

The RCIA process allows you to journey through the full exploration of what it means to be Catholic and the richness of the Church history, teachings, and practices. It normally culminates in reception of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist) at the Easter Vigil.

Returning to the Catholic Faith

If you are a baptized Catholic looking for a way back to Catholicism and are seeking guidanceor want to receive the other sacraments of initiation, we are here to help you.  Contact the Parish Office at 708-771-8250 or click the button below to email the office and get started.
