RCIA Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults
Maybe you are a non-Catholic Christian accompanying your family to Church and now feel drawn to become part of this community of faith. Maybe your “roots” are in another religion, or in none. Maybe you are a Baptised Catholic but never received, as a young person, the Sacrament of Confirmation.
RCIA is both a learning and teaching programme that aims to help those who would like to know more about the Christian faith from a catholic perspective and might be thinking about becoming a Catholic.
To be a full member of the Catholic Church you need to complete the process of Christian Initiation which is when you have been Baptised, Confirmed and made your First Holy Communion.
If you are not a Catholic, but regularly come to Sunday Mass or an adult Catholic not yet confirmed, why not get in touch with the Parish Priest for an informal chat.
The 100 Club lottery supports charity activities in the parish, and currently in the time of a pandemic it is the only source of helping others. Therefore, we encourage parishioners to join the lottery.
