R.C.I.A.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

Interested in becoming a Catholic? Not baptised?  Baptised but not evangelised? Baptised in another faith? In preparation for the next R.C.I.A. programme (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) meetings will begin shortly.  Contact the Parish Office to leave your name and details. 

“The welcoming of people into the Catholic Church through what’s known as the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a growing process in our diocese,” said Fr Damian Mc Neice, RCIA contact person for the Archdiocese. “The parishes involved over the past number of years have found themselves greatly enriched by welcoming and accompanying people as they grow on their faith journey. Their wanting to become one of us challenges us to live our faith in a more authentic way. It challenges us too not to take what we have received for granted, and to always be parishes that welcome and form people in prayer, the Scriptures, ongoing faith formation and social caring.”
