RCIA - Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults
“I heard the Lord call my name!” Maybe you have not really heard the voice of the Lord BUT you might have heard a whisper in your ear OR an extra beat in your heart inviting you to learn more about the Catholic Church.
We are here for you to answer questions, share our faith, and most importantly we want to reach out and welcome you into the church.
If you have questions about the church or you know of someone who has expressed an interest in joining our faith, PLEASE invite him/her to contact Pat Kahl for more information. Pat may be reached at 708-799-4550 x221. Find our more about the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) Program.
