Preparation for a child's First Communion or Holy Eucharist is done through our Faith Formation Program Coordinator. The children need to enroll to the Wednesday classes in order to prepare them for this sacrament. You may communicate with our Faith Formation Office at 815-932-7911 in order to register your child for the program.
Our RCIA program runs from the fall season of every year leading to the rites of initiation at the Easter Vigil of the following year. These several months of preparation deepens the knowledge of an adult of the life of prayer in the Church, together with Her theologies and doctrines. At the end of the RCIA program, the adult catechumen receives the full sacrament of initiation - baptism, confirmation and eucharist. For more information, call Fr. Matt Pratscher at 815-933-7683.
