Becoming Catholic: Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) | Unirse a la Iglesia Católica: Rito de Iniciacion Cristiana para Adultos (RICA)
The RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is a process for those considering becoming Catholic. Specifically, it is:
- For those who are not baptized and are in the process of making a decision to become Catholic;
- For those who were baptized in another faith and are thinking of becoming Catholic;
- For those who were baptized Roman Catholic and have not received Eucharist or Confirmation.
The process is designed to assist those interested in Catholicism to learn about our faith, our tradition, and our celebrations. Each person is invited to reflect on his/her own relationship with God and the faith community. We journey through this process together, assisting each other in our response to God’s call.
If you or someone you know might be interested in participating in the RCIA, please call Sr. Christina at 847.864.1185, x 23 for more information. Our sessions are held on Mondays at 7:00 pm in the Parish Office though other arrangements can be made.
