RCIA: Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

Want to be a Catholic? Curious about the Catholic Church? RCIA is a programme which gives adults a pathway to become Catholic and strengthen their commitment to God and His Church.

Many adults find themselves wanting to explore the possibility of baptism or becoming a member of the Catholic Church. Each year our parish RCIA program starts in July/August and leads up to Easter the following year, where candidates are Baptized, Confirmed and make their First Eucharist, or are received into the Church, depending on their situation. This wonderful celebration is the culmination of quite a lengthy and formative process.

You are welcome to come along and ask questions – there is no pressure to commit.
