Would you like to find out about becoming a Catholic? Have you been baptised in another faith and wish to be received into the Catholic Church? Have you been baptised a Catholic but have never received the Sacraments of Holy Communion or Confirmation? The RCIA programme will be starting in our Parish at the end of September 2022 and takes place over the equivalent of two academic terms (September through to April) with the aim of receiving the Sacraments at the Easter Vigil Mass. Anyone interested in following the RCIA process is invited to make contact, in the first instance with Canon Chris. More information is on this website under Parish Groups & Ministries.
