Religious Education at St. Patricia
Adult faith formation addresses the needs of those in the Saint Patricia community who are seeking to deepen their faith.
The R.C.I.A. Program is a process that helps inquiring adults learn more about the Catholic faith. In questioning their faith and joining others, they learn and discover principals of our faith and church. After inquiring about the Catholic Church, individuals commit their desire to become Catholic. Members are received into the church at the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday.
The Religious Education Program is designed for our children who attend public school and return to the parish on Tuesday evenings or during the Summer Intensive program to hear the word of God, learn our faith traditions, and discover God's work in our lives.
Please contact the Religious Education office with any questions, (708) 599-1221.
Children's First Reconciliation is received in Grade 2 prior to First Eucharist. First Holy Communion is one of our three sacraments of initiation. It is through these sacraments of initiation that we become full members of the Church. Confirmation is usually celebrated in the spring of eighth grade
