A lot of parishes want to be more effective at forming disciples, but most do not know where to begin.


Our Mission

L'Alto Catholic Institute exists to help parishes in the dioceses of Rockford, Joliet, and the archdiocese of Chicago meet the challenge of this new evangelization head on. Verso l'alto, Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati's famous battle cry, means "to the heights" and we want to inspire Catholics to seek after the heights of holiness.

We put our years of ministry experience and theological training to work for you as a kind of evangelization department agency.

Through our Parish Partnership, we make a substantial commitment to your community to help you begin the lengthy process of building a culture of missionary discipleship at your parish. We help you hone in on a specific vision for evangelization, create a strategic plan for achieving that mission, and begin forming and training your leaders in creating a clear path to discipleship for your parishioners.

Our Parish Mission is a dynamic three-day event aimed at giving your parishioners a powerful and life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ in the Holy Spirit. We bring dynamic preaching and profound worship music to your parish for this unique experience. 

Lastly, our adult faith formation series like our School of Prayer come to your parish to form and train your parishioners in the disciplines of a missionary disciple of Jesus Christ.

I sense that the moment has come to commit all of the Church’s energies to a new evangelization.
— Pope St. John Paul II
