Becoming Catholic


Do you know an adult who attends Mass regularly but who is not Catholic?
Do you know an adult who is married to a Catholic but is not Catholic?

Do you know an adult who is interested in becoming Catholic?


If you answered yes to any of the above questions, please complete a blue pew card at Mass this month and return it to the collection basket. Those names will receive a letter of invitation to come and inquire about Catholicism through the RCIA Ministry. RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) is a process of evangelization that answers religious questions, teaches Catholic doctrine and welcomes adults into an active role in our parish life.


Any questions, please contact Jan or George Yingst, (847) 438-2042 or
