The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults


Interested in Becoming Catholic?

Catholic But Not Confirmed?


RCIA is for those who have never been baptized, or were baptized in another faith tradition, or were baptized Catholic but never received First Holy Communion or Confirmation.

We meet Sunday mornings during the NIU school year and receive the sacraments at the Easter Vigil Mass in April.



The first five weeks of RCIA are the “Inquiry Period” – a time of questions, reflection, and discernment. All are welcome!  Contact Fr. McMorrow at, or 815-787-7770.

Inquiry Sessions begin in September!
