Welcome to St. Walter Parish

 

INTERESTED IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
OR KNOW SOMEONE WHO IS?

Coming to know Jesus Christ within the Catholic Church is the journey of a lifetime for all of us. However, if you are not Catholic because you were never Baptized or because you were Baptized in another Christian tradition, you can begin that journey through the process we call the Rite of Christian of Adults (RCIA). This process is also open to Catholics who haven't received the sacraments of Confirmation and First Eucharist.

  • If you have ever considered the possibility of becoming Catholic, or want to complete your initiation into the Church, we are here to meet with you, and want to hear your story, answer your questions, and, help your to explore our Faith.,
  • Perhaps you have a friend, neighbor or family member who expressed an interest in becoming Cathholic or completing initiation into the Church. Invite him/her to explore with us,

If you think the (RCIA) journey if for you and you want to know more, please call Deacon Joseph Pusateri (630)708-0612 or email Joe at dcn.joe.pusateri@gmail.com to begin the conversation.

GROW YOUR KIDS
 

Faith Formation Sessions Grades 1-6
Our traditional Children's Faith Formation sessions meet on Tuesdays from 4:30 - 5:45 PM or from 6:00 - 7:15 PM. For families that desire faith formation for their children, but cannot attend Tuesday sessions, we also have a family based program called WeGrowFaith@Home where the parents teach the lessons at home and then once a month the entire family comes for Family Night. Registration packets for both programs are available on the parish website, at the Faith Network desk, or in the Guiney Ministry Center. Have a first grader? Be sure to register your child for this fall as First Communion requires two years of preparation, for both grade 1 & grade 2

Confirmation Sessios Level 1 and Level 2
Confirmation preparation is a two-year process with grade 6 being a requirement to enter the program. Confirmation sessions are held twice amonth on Tuesdays from 7:30 - 9:00 PM. Registration packets for are available on the parish website, at the Faith Network desk, or in the Guiney Ministry Center. 

Bridges in Faith
We understand that family circumstances are varied. If you family has been away from the faith for a period to time, but you now are feeling called to have your children celebrate the Sacraments there is a program for you. Give Valerie a call to set up an appointment to discuss your children's faith.

A Call to Ministry...Be a Catechist!
A catechist is someone to who helps young people come to know Christ and the riches of the Catholic faith. You don't need a degree in Theology to be a catechist. What you do need is:
       The love of your faith
       The desire to share it with our children
If you feel the Holy Spirit urging you to consider this ministry give us a call to find our more. Classes meet on Tuesdays (September - April). Openings exist in all grade leels. Training and support are provided! There are tuition discounts for catechists and assistants.
