Adults who desire to become Catholic or are in need of their sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Eucharist) take part in our RCIA program, which meets weekly, beginning in the the fall and concluding in May. Adults in need of baptism and those who are not Catholic but desire to enter into full communion with the Catholic Church receive their sacraments at the Mass of the Easter Vigil. Catholic adults in need of confirmation typically receive confirmation in May. For more information, call Fr. Matt Pratscher at 815-933-7683.
