RCIA Process

rcia happenings 2

Are you someone or do know someone interested in becoming Catholic? Or were you baptized Catholic as a child, but not celebrated the Sacraments of Confirmation or Eucharist?

St. Joseph Parish invites you to think about and pray about our Rite of Christian Initiation of Adult process. This is an opportunity to come together in a small group to learn more about the Catholic faith. Our friendly and enthusiastic RCIA Team offers sessions focusing on the teachings of the church as they help prepare individuals to celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist during the Easter season.

Send us a message (Contact Page) or call us (815-939-357) to get connected with the RCIA Team.

blood drive sign 2

Did you know that making a blood donation can save up to three lives? Accident victims, surgery patients, and those fighting cancer and other diseases need blood to survive.

There is much technology in our world, but scientists have yet to develop a method for synthesizing blood. It’s up to us to share this most precious gift.

Our parish hosts regular Blood Drives as a way of following Christ’s mandate to heal the sick. Click here for details and find out when the next Blood Drive is scheduled at St. Joseph’s.
