Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process in which adults become full, participating members of the Catholic Church. Participants, known as catechumens go through a process of studying the Gospel, nurturing their relationship with God, becoming familiar with the Catholic teachings and practices, professing their faith in Jesus and the Church, and receiving the sacraments of initiation: Baptism, Communion, and Confirmation. 

A Journey in Faith from September to Pentecost. Wednesday evening meetings are held in St Joseph's Parish Hall, if you would like to know more about the Catholic Faith. You will have the opportunity, in a small group, to explore Catholic teaching, read the Scriptures, and pray together. This preparation, if you so wish, can lead to the reception of the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist in the Catholic Church. To register your interest, please fill in this application form or speak to Fr Anthony. 

Following this, if you are interested in continuing your journey with a view to entering the Catholic Church please fill in this application form or speak to Fr Anthony.
