Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
Journey in Faith

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which adults can become full and participating members of the Catholic Church. Those participating – known as catechumens – enjoy a process of Gospel study, developing a connection with God and becoming familiar with the Catholic teachings and practices., They will learn to profess their faith in Jesus and the Church, and this will culminate in them receiving the sacraments of initiation: BaptismCommunion, and Confirmation.

Have you ever wanted to understand more about the Catholic faith of your partner or friends? As a regular parishioner, have you ever considered inviting one of your friends or family members to “come and see”, to explore what the Catholic Church teaches?  Perhaps you are already a baptised Catholic who would like to deepen your own understanding of the Church’s teaching or to complete your Christian initiation by preparing to receive the sacrament of Confirmation?  The RCIA/ Journey in Faith, starting in September, may be the place for you.
