Reception into Full Communion

RCIA describes a process in which men and women are guided and cared for as they awaken in faith and are gradually initiated into the Roman Catholic community.

The RCIA process is a series of carefully planned stages, marked by liturgical rites in the presence of the whole community, in which new Catholics embark on and join us in a continuing and deepening conversion into faith and discipleship. RCIA takes the distinctive history and spiritual needs of each person into account.

If you are interested in becoming Roman Catholic or learning more about the Catholic Faith, please fill out an application as soon as possible for our six-month RCIA program (from October to Easter) to prepare for the reception of the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. Anyone who would like to refresh their knowledge or learn more about the faith is also welcome.

Each Autumn we commence a series of evening sessions for people who want to know more – initially without committing themselves. If you feel you may be interested, please contact Fr David either by email or by telephone on 01483 272075.
