“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.  And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:19-20

Order of Christian Initiation of Adults (OCIA)

The Order of Christian Initiation of Adults (OCIA) is our way of welcoming new adult members into the Catholic Church.   It consists of a series of gatherings with other adults who are also interested in learning more about God’s love in the Catholic Church.

OCIA is a process of study, exploration, faith-sharing and formation for:

  • non-baptized adults who desire to be fully initiated into the Catholic Church
  • baptized adult Christians who desire to receive the Sacraments of Baptism, First Holy Communion and Confirmation (those that apply)
  • baptized adult Catholics who desire to complete the Sacraments of First Holy Communion and/or Confirmation

For more information, contact Paul or Karyn Leali at 847-337-5043.

We’d be honored to walk the way of faith with you.
