RCIA stands for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and is a process for those who are seeking to join the Catholic community. With the help of catechists, priests and fellow enquirers, you will learn all about the Christian faith and what is distinctive about Roman Catholicism, as well as exploring your personal relationship with God in prayer and in daily life. This course will prepare you to receive the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist as a Catholic.
RCIA groups also welcome adults already baptised in another Christian denomination (e.g. Anglican, Pentecostal, Orthodox) who would like to be admitted into full communion with the Catholic Church.
Enquiries can be made at any time of the year. Courses usually run from October to May but sessions can be arranged at other times, depending on circumstances.
Once we have received your details, we will be in touch to arrange an informal chat with a catechist or a priest.
