R.C.I.A (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults)
is the parish group which helps adults prepare for the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist). The group includes leaders, candidates and their sponsors from the parish community.
The meetings are led by Fr. Gregory and catechists from the parish who speak about various aspects of our faith and Catholic tradition.This is group for adults who are thinking more about becoming a Catholic or want to find out more about Catholic faith.
Do you find yourself in the following group of people?
Have you been coming to Mass for a while, even coming up for a blessing at mass, but are not Catholic?
Been thinking about becoming a Catholic for some time but never got around to doing anything about it?
Married to a Catholic, but not yet made a religious commitment of your own?
Baptised, but not active in a Church, or find yourself wanting more?
Been a Catholic all your life, but never celebrated all of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, First Communion)?
Do you have a non-Catholic husband, wife, family member or friend who would like to know more about the Catholic faith? Sometimes, those of us who have been Catholic our whole lives forget to offer this information to others who may be interested in becoming Catholic.
If you, or anyone would like to join us, please come along. The group meets up every Monday at 7:30pm at the Priest House.
