RCIA

Journey in Faith: Becoming a Catholic.

The 2015 Journey starts Wednesday 4th November at 1pm led by Deacon Barry. 

Deacon Barry writes:

Our Journey in Faith or The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process developed by the Catholic Church for prospective converts to Catholicism who are above the age of infant baptism.

Those attending are gradually introduced to aspects of Catholic beliefs and practices.

It is also suitable for those Catholics who wish to refresh their knowledge and understanding of their faith.

Our journey in faith group meets for the first time on Wednesday 4th November, 2015 at 1pm in the Presbytery which is located immediately next door and to the right of the church as you face the front door of the church.

Each weekly session lasts for an hour or so and finishes promptly at 2pm.

We start with refreshments. The meetings are informal, chatty and very friendly.

Men and women of all age groups, backgrounds and interests are invited.

Some of those attending may just want to know what the Church has to say on various issues and the basis of its teaching.

Others may be of another Christian denomination or none.

Some may have been brought up as Catholics and feel that they would like to know more about their faith.

Whatever the reason you will be made most welcome.

You do not have to bring anything with you other than just yourself.
