Journeys of Faith

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA):
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is primarily a journey to a life of faith, love and justice lived in communion with Catholics throughout the world.  If you, or someone you know, have been thinking about becoming a member of the Catholic Church or to complete their Catholic initiation (sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation), contact Fr. Phi at 847-223-4731 or
email: p n g u y e n @ s t g i l b e r t . o r g

Rejoice In God:
Do you have a child of school age who has not been baptized or baptized in another faith tradition who desires to become Catholic?  Do you have a child in third grade who has not celebrated their Reconciliation or Eucharist?  If you have answered “Yes” to either question, the “Rejoice In God” program is for you.  Contact Sister Donna at the Religious Education office for further information and to register: 847-223-3071.
