Thinking of becoming a Catholic? Don’t know how? Each year thousands of adults make the decision to join the Catholic Church. They come from a lot of different backgrounds, some faith based, some not. Anyone can become a Catholic, they follow a process called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).
RCIA preparation usually begins in the early autumn with weekly meetings take place to prepare the candidates for baptism or reception into the Catholic Church at Easter. You may be nervous, but listen to the invitation of Jesus who says “Do not be afraid”. The RCIA programme often proves to be a good opportunity to make some new friends.
Whatever your background, whatever has brought you to this stage in life, give thanks for this moment, embrace your past and live for the present. If you wish to find out more about becoming a Catholic or wish to register for RCIA please contact the parish office.
