Adult Formation

Diane Ahlemeyer, Director / 630-384-0138 / Diane@StDaniel.org


The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a program that prepares people for the Sacraments of Christian Initiation.  This program is for adults who are not baptized, for baptized Christian adults who wish to become Catholics, and for Catholic adults who need to make all of their sacraments.  Classes start in the fall each year.

Scripture Study is scheduled throughout the year, with classes during the day, for those who wish to explore the teachings of the Bible more fully in light of the Sacred Tradition of the Catholic Church, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.


Prayer Groups.  Small groups for adults meet throughout the week at various times, to pray, to study, and to support each other in their faith journeys.  Please click here for more information about our small sharing groups for adults and how to join or start a group.

Guest Speaker Programs are being prepared for various times throughout the year to help parishioners understand and live out the teachings of the Catholic Church more fully in their daily lives. Suggested topics for these programs should be forwarded to the Director.


Online Resources.  We recommend the following websites for your personal study and spiritual reflection.  Our new Online Catechism provides a review of the essentials of the Catholic faith for converts and for those who want to deepen their understanding of the Catholic faith.  CatholicsComeHome.org is not just for those who are returning to the Faith, but for all who seek a deeper appreciation of Catholic Christianity.  DynamicCatholic.com provides reading materials and daily inspirations.  ForYourMarriage.org is another family-related resource.

Protecting God’s Children.  Everyone who works with children in our parish is required by the diocese to take this important program.  All employees and parish leaders are required to take this diocesan program as well.  We must do everything in our power to protect the innocence of children in our midst.  All parishioners, friends, and even neighbors are invited to take this enlightening program as well.  Please contact the religious education office for information about the next scheduled Protecting God’s Children program.

We also have a Book Club, and promote the diocesan Foundations of the Faith program as well. Please call the religious education office for information about these programs.
