The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process of spiritual and educational formation designed for those who are considering following Christ in the Catholic Church.

We welcome adults who have never been baptized, as well as those who were baptized in another Christian tradition and wish to become Catholic.

Old St. Mary’s rejoiced when it welcomed 12 new members of the Catholic Church into our community at the 2019 Easter Vigil. Our  season of RCIA sessions has begun, if you are interested, please fill out the RCIA Inquiry form below.

If you have questions, please contact Maryellen Harrington at 312.922.3444 ext. 26 or Fr. Stuart Wilson-Smith at  or  312.922.3444 ext. 25.
