For Adults who are looking to come into full Communion of the Church

R.C.I.A.

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults


The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a journey to faith.  If you, or someone you know, has felt a nudge to embark on this spiritual journey towards Catholicism, the RCIA may be right for you.

Let our team help you discern whether God is calling you into full commuinion with the Church.  For more information, please contact Nidia Delgado at 847-888-2718 or email ndelgado@stmaryelgin.org.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the proscess for those who desire to become Catholic

This communal process is for:

  • Adults who have never been baptized
  • Adults who were baptized Catholic but who have not received the Sacraments of Holy Communion or Confirmation
  • Adults who want to learn more about their Catholic faith.

Classes for Candidates and Sponsors begin on Tuesday, October 6th at 7:15 pm in the upper level of the Parish office.

The first night is inquiry and introduction of the journey of becoming Catholic.

We have a great team of teachers who will be presenting on the teachings of the Catholic Church.  Through weekly meetings you'll learn about the Catholic faith with others who will be on a similar journey.  Participants will enter fully into the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil which will be celebrated on Holy Saturday evening in 2021.

Each participant will have a sponsor who will support them on their faith journey.  The sponsor needs to be fully intiated practicing Catholic.  If a candidate does not have someone to ask, we have parishioners who would be honored to serve as a sponsor.

We'd be happy to walk with you on your faith journey!
