Classes begin every September
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) is the process by which adults prepare to be received into full communion with the Catholic Church. The RCIA provides the opportunity to grow in the faith, supported by the community of Holy Virgin Martyrs Parish. You begin with a period of Inquiry followed by weekly Mass attendance, study of the faith, practices and doctrines of the Catholic Church, which leads to your initiation through either Baptism or a Profession of Faith, and the reception of Eucharist and Confirmation.
If you are considering joining the Church, we would love to help you in your journey! Or, if you know of anyone who is considering joining, consider extending an invitation to them!
Have questions, need additional information, not sure if you should participate? Contact the rectory at (847) 678-0138 or fill out the form on this page.
