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 are 2 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 and Marlo Drake .
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.
