How do I become a Catholic?

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation)


Now is the time………………………….

  • Have you been wondering if the Catholic Faith is the faith home for you?

  • Have you been attending Mass with your spouse or family, but never joined our Faith Family?

  • Were you baptized in the Catholic faith but never received the sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation?

  • Is there anyone you know that you would like to invite to be part of our faith community?

If you are considering becoming Catholic or want to complete your Sacraments of Initiation (Eucharist and Confirmation) in the Catholic Faith, or have questions whether RCIA is right for your, please contact Deacon Matt Tretina @ 630-833-7730 or mtretina@stalexanderparish.org.  He will be glad to answer any questions you may have.

RCIA sessions typically start in September and run through the following Spring when candidates will receive Sacraments at the Easter Vigil.
