Confirmation Parent Meeting

Last chance to join the RCIA for this year! 

The RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) has settled into this year of classes and preparation for receiving full initiation into the Catholic Church at Easter. These classes are for someone who has not been baptized, someone who was baptized in another faith but wishes to be a part of the Catholic community, or for someone who was baptized Catholic but never received First Communion or Confirmation. This program is done collaboratively with Queen of Angels, St. Mary of the Lake and Our Lady of Lourdes. Classes meet on Tuesday evenings from 7-8:30pm and alternate between St. Matthias and Queen of Angels. There is no cost for the program, and we are still welcoming anyone who would like to join us. Please contact the parish office (773.5062191) for more information.
