Becoming a Catholic

Each year a number of people join the Catholic Church in our parish through the RCIA - Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults - Journey of Faith programme.

This is a rolling programme which restarts every summer. The group meets every Tuesday evening at 8.00pm in the Van Meenan Room. Most of those who follow the course will be received into the Catholic Church at Easter of the following year, but some may take longer to reach a firm decision for themselves, and all are welcome to join the course on a "no commitment" basis.

The RCIA course is open to adults who have never been baptised, or who have been baptised in another Christian Church. It may also be suitable for adult Catholics who have been baptised but not yet confirmed.

Please make initial enquiries to the Parish office on 01708 447761.
