Welcoming New Catholics  

If you are an adult who has never been baptized, were baptized in another Christian faith and are interested in becoming Catholic, or were baptized Catholic but never made first communion and confirmation, consider being part of our RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults). It is a group process that meets on Sunday mornings beginning in the late summer. We celebrate the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and First Communion) at the first Mass of Easter. To find out more, contact Fr. Joe.

Parish parking is available in the adjacent 311 W. Illinois building one hour before all weekend Masses, weddings, and other parish events.
