  Parish Events

RCIA, (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) also known as the Catechumenate,
is a restored Rite within the Roman Catholic Church.  Rituals mark and acknowledge the process of ongoing deepening of faith within a person as well as providing an opportunity for adults to ‘come and see’ what Catholic Christians believe and strive to live.  The atmosphere of the weekly meetings honour adult learning needs and includes content, discussion and encourages questions from those inquiring.
The process is facilitated by parishioners desiring to share their faith with those inquiring into the Catholic Christian tradition, in a very casual, welcoming environment, in which the needs of each person are considered and respected. RCIA also serves as a vehicle for those who wish to become fully initiated members of the Roman Catholic Church.

For Whom?

The RCIA group meets every Thursday evening from 7:30 to 9:30 PM. Please contact us for more information.
