Right of Christian Initiation of Adults     RCIA

The Right of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) provides an introductory course on Catholicism and a journey of initiation for new Catholics.

 

An interesting journey; sharing life experiences, delving into history and deep truths, experiencing the grandeur of St Patrick's Cathedral, the quiet times of prayer and reflection and culminates each year in the Easter ceremonies, followed by a time of introduction to and immersion in the life of the parish.

 

There is a team of 3 people who guide the participants through the course answering their questions about the Catholic Faith and inducting them into the community.

 

RCIA is coordinated by  Diane Saliba, Marlo Drake and Leon Pollard.

 

Our program will begin with an Enquiry Night in  September then  8 study nights between October and February as candidates prepare for Baptism and Confirmation at Easter. The team will walk with the candidates as they learn of the Catholic faith.  We run this program every two years and the next sessions will begin in September 2018.

 

The Sacraments will then be received at the Easter Vigil.

CHILDRENS LITURGY OF THE WORD - LARA 2017 - 9am Mass

  

ST ANTHONY’S MASS ~ CHILDREN’S LITURGY OF THE WORD

Through the year Children’s Liturgy is facilitated to provide children with a simplified version of the Gospel reading. Prayers are said and there is an activity to reinforce the Gospel message. The children are then involved in the offertory procession and often then have a chat with Father Manoj about what the reading was about and the activity they have done. Children’s Liturgy is a fabulous way for children to participate in the Mass. 

Children’s Liturgy of the Word dates for the remainder of 2017 are:

Term 1:  March 19

Term 2:- April 30, May 7, 14, 21, June 4, 11, 18

Term 3:- July 16, 30, August 6, September 3, 10

Term 4:- October 8, 15, 29, November 12, 19, December 3, 10, 17

Children’s Liturgy of the Word is also held every Sunday morning at St Francis’ Mass Corio at 10.30am.
