Who is the RCIA for?
- Adults who are unbaptised
- Adults who are already baptised in another Christian Church
- Non-practising Catholics who wish to renew their faith
The Rite of Initiation is likened to a spiritual journey that takes place within the parish community. It involves a series of sessions with members of the faithful, to pray together, to learn about the life of Jesus through the Gospels, and discuss what His message means for us in everyday life. Another important aspect of the sessions is to enlighten, inform and discuss Catholic beliefs and practices.
Many parishes have an RCIA program for adults seeking to become Catholics. A starting point is ringing our office or finding your local parish
and talking to your parish priest and/or the parish leaders. To speak to someone at our office and to learn more, please contact:
