Becoming Catholic

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process for prospective converts to join the Roman Catholic Church. Candidates are gradually introduced to Catholic teachings and guided in their spiritual development. Family members or friends, in good standing with the church, as well as fellow St. Anthony parishioners will provide support to the candidates in the form of Sponsors and Team Members.

Classes are conducted in conjunction with other local parishes to enhance group discussion which follow the weekly presentations given by engaging, local speakers. Annual RCIA classes begin in September and conclude shortly after the Easter Vigil where the candidates are welcomed into full communion to the Church. For more information call the parish office 309-697-0645.
