Who is a Parishioner?

There are many people who come to the rectory asking for a baptism or marriage or to sign a letter saying he or she is a parishioner. When this happens, our parish secretary checks if they are considered registered, and many times, they are not considered registered.
So what makes a person a parishioner?
You are not a parishioner because your parents go here. You are not a parishioner because you went to school here. You are not a parishioner just because you come to Mass here!
Being a parishioner should be an easy process. You simply have to come to the rectory and fill out a registration form. You may download the registration form  then bring it to the rectory. You know you are a parishioner when envelopes are sent to you. It’s that easy! No fee; no ID cards are required!
Being a parishioner means that you are committed and invested in this parish. It means that you commit to keeping the parish vibrant, which means investment of your time, talents, and treasures to the parish. The parish would not be the same without our parishioners who make a difference and form the parish.
Thank you for your dedication and devotion!


Confirmation is a Sacrament of Initiation which strengthens the grace of Baptism and seals us with the Holy Spirit. Confirmation strengthens us to live our life of faith. Through this sacrament, the Holy Spirit and the Spirit’s gifts help us to live our baptismal promises, to grow into the likeness of Christ, and to share his mission.

 The classes will start on Sunday, October 17th at 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm at St. Ferdinand School: 3131 N. Mason Ave. Chicago, IL. 60634

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the Church’s ritual process for calling adults to a conversion of mind and heart and preparing them for a full and active life in the Church as disciples of Jesus.
The RCIA is primarily intended for those who are unbaptized and preparing for the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.
Our RCIA team invites you to inquire into deepening your faith journey.

RCIA is a process by which adults become fully initiated Catholics.
This process is especially for adults who were:

> Never baptized
> Baptized in another Christian faith and wish to become Catholic
> Baptized Catholic but have not received other sacraments as First Eucharist and Confirmation.

The classes will start on Sunday, October 17th at 1:00pm to 2:30pm
at St Ferdinand School
3131 N. Mason Ave. Chicago, IL. 60634
