The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

The Rite of Christian Initiation is the process by which those who are not baptized, those who are baptized into a Christian tradition other than Roman Catholic, and those Catholic who were baptized as infants but have not celebrated either Confirmation or First Eucharist are invited to complete their adult Christian initiation. The program begins in September and runs through April. The RCIA is an engaging, dynamic, respectful, challenging and enjoyable journey. If you are interested in registering for this program, or if you know someone who is interested in exploring Catholicism through the RCIA program please call the Parish Office or Ben Shafer at 773-586-5099. 

     A similar program of sacramental preparation for teens is also available. The teen program runs parallel to the RCIA. For more information about our teen program, please contract the Parish Office.
