RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS

We've seen these initials a number of times in our
bulletin, haven't we? What do they mean? The formal definition is
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults - but there's more to it than that.

The program is focused on helping adults who are
thinking of becoming Catholic as well as adults who may be coming back to Church after being away for a while. The program also accommodates adults who want a renewal and update concerning all that is happening in our Church today.

This takes place in a series of gatherings geared to enlighten and renew for all 'What it means to be
Catholic'. We gather as friends, no formal classes or tests.

All are welcome to come and join us with your questions on Tuesday, September 18th in the Gathering Place at 7:30 p.m. If you would like to know more about our Church today, please come! For more information please call the parish office at 847-253-5353.

Deacon Michael Madison & Elaine Clancy, Co-Directors

The moment we
open ourselves
up to God's plans
is the moment
miracles begin
to happen in
our lives.

Welcome
There is More to Life
