HOME BULLETINS RELIGIOUS EDUCATION SACRAMENTS MINISTRIES BECOMING CATHOLIC INFORMATION

Sacraments

Baptisms

Expectant parents are asked to prepare for the celebration of baptism well in advance by participating in a baptismal preparation class before the birth of their child.  Please call the Rectory to register for this required class.

Eucharist

Coming soon.

Penance

The Sacrament of Penance is celebrated on Saturday from 3:15 pm until 3:45 pm. The Reconciliation Room is located at the rear of the church. Confessions are also available by appointment.

Confirmation

Reception of a sacrament requires adequate knowledge and preparation. Eighth Grade Confirmation preparation must be immediately preceded by two consecutive years of regular attendance in religious instruction.

Marriage

Couples are asked to call the Rectory before setting a date for the wedding or making other commitments. The diocese requires a minimum preparation time of six months between the first conference and the wedding.

Becoming a Catholic

The process of conversion occurs when one seeks a greater relationship with Jesus Christ through his Church. Adults who desire to become full members of the Catholic Faith are encouraged to inquire about the Church and the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.).

The R.C.I.A. enables participants to journey through various stages of spiritual formation, study, and prayer.  New Catholics are initiated at the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday, when the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist are celebrated.

If you, or someone you know, is drawn to the Catholic Faith, and have discerned the call of God in your life, please call Ms. Margaret Trepal, Pastoral Associate at St. Mary Magdalene. (815) 722-7653.

Children's Liturgy of the Word

Children's Liturgy of the Word is offered each Sunday during the 9:30 am Mass for pre-school to fourth grade children.

Religious Education

St. Mary Magdalene Religious Education meets during the school year on Saturday morning from 8:30 to 10:00 am.  Classes are offered for grades 1-8.

Sick and Infirm

Call the Rectory to have Holy Communion brought to shut-ins, or to celebrate the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick.  Please notify the Rectory Office whenever a family member is seriously ill, hospitalized, or in a nursing home.
