National Gathering on Christian Initiation Hero Image

Join us for the 2022 National Gathering on Christian Initiation™ on July 13–14 at the Loyola University Chicago Lakeshore Campus, located in the Rogers Park neighborhood. A conference for parish leaders, initiation ministers, and regional or diocesan trainers, the National Gathering on Christian Initiation™ explores the theoretical and practical aspects of initiation ministry. Through interactive sessions, meetings, and prayer opportunities, participants will understand more deeply that the vision of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the vision of the parish as a community of disciples.
