All you who are thirsty, come to the water! You who have no money, come, buy grain and eat (Isaiah 55:1a).

Since Madonna della Strada Chapel is not a parish church, we cannot offer the Sacrament of Baptism to children (Code of Canon Law 857 para. 2).

For students who have never been baptized, Loyola University offers the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, which refers to the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and First Eucharist as well as to other rituals that prepare adults to receive these Sacraments and to become fully initiated members of the Catholic Church.

For more information, please contact Dr. John Paul Salay, Coordinator of Liturgy and RCIA.
