Becoming Catholic For Children

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Children (R.C.I.C.) classes are offered for older children who have not been baptized or who may need to be prepared for the sacraments of Reconciliation or Eucharist. Class times for these sessions are determined based upon the number and age levels of the students enrolled.

Becoming Catholic For Adults

The Rite of Christian Initiation (R.C.I.A.) is a process for sharing the Catholic faith with adults who are:

    • Not baptized but are feeling God's call in their lives.
    • Baptized in other faiths and feel drawn to the Catholic Church.
    • Baptized in the Catholic faith, but have not received First Communion or Confirmation.
    • Baptized and confirmed, but want to update their knowledge of the Catholic faith.

How the process works:

1. We begin with an introduction to the Catholic faith and community. No commitment is required.
2. Next comes a period of learning the fundamentals of the faith and formation into the Catholic community.
3. Spiritual preparation then intensifies as we examine our lives and the changes we are called to make. This is the time of final preparation for receiving the sacraments.
4. At the Easter Vigil, new members are initiated into the faith.
5. Then begins a period of continued learning and reflection.

When and where:
Weekly meetings are held in the Religious Education Center, 3440 Halsted Boulevard on Thursday evenings from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm. To register or to get additional information, call the Office of Faith Formation at 754-3460.
