Becoming Catholic

Becoming a Catholic as an adult

If you would like some information about becoming a Catholic as an adult, please contact the parish office for information on the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) process.

The RCIA is a process by which adults interested in learning about the Catholic faith come together on a weekly basis to learn about the scriptures and teachings of the Catholic Church, and to discover where God is present in their lives.  The RCIA takes place within a parish community in company with others on a similar journey.

The process is designed for those adults who are:

  • Unbaptised
  • Baptised in another tradition or
  • Baptised Catholic, but with no further religious training or sacraments.
