Our Parish's RCIA Journey begins September 7th


Are you interested in knowing more about the Catholic Christian way of life?  Follow your heart and join us on the journey of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).

The journey involves learning about the teachings and traditions of the Church as well as sharing in its rituals which outwardly express the community's blessing, joy and support for you as you seek to deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ.

The RCIA program here at St. Jude has been designed for adults who feel called to the Catholic faith and who can answer YES to any of the following questions:

  • Have you never been baptized in any Christian tradition?
  • Have you been baptized in another Christian tradition and are considering the Catholic way of life?
  • Have you been baptized as a Catholic but have not received your First Holy Communion and Confirmation?

If any of the above questions apply to you, we would love to help you with your faith journey.  Or, if you know of anyone who could answer YES to any of the above - please extend a gentle invitation to them to consider joining us on the RCIA journey.

If you would like to find out more about our RCIA program and perhaps journey with us this year to a new and deeper love of Jesus:

  • Please call Deacon Mark at 815-463-4272,
  • Send Deacon Mark an email or
  • Complete the following form and someone from our RCIA team will get back to you. 

Seeking information about the Catholic Faith and the RCIA program will not commit or oblige you to become Catholic. While we love the Catholic faith, and hope that you would come to love it as well, we wont pressure anyone to make such an important decision without first taking the time to learn about the faith and get answers to any questions you may have.
