Right of Christian Initiation For Adults (RCIA)
Who Is This For?
This is a programme of instruction in the faith for adults:
- Have you been worshiping with us, but never officially took the step to become Catholic?
- Have you been away from the Church…and have now returned, but want to know more?
- Have you been Catholic all your life, but never celebrated all the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Eucharist & Confirmation)?
- Have you joined us from a different faith background and would like to find out more about the Catholic Church?
- Do you know of anyone who has lapsed from the practice of their faith and would like to respond to an invitation to return to the Father’s House?
If any of these questions apply to you, the RCIA programme is a great way to help you on your journey of faith!
The programme is every Tuesday, 7:30 - 9:00 pm.
The programme runs from after Easter and ends two weeks after the Easter vigil. There is a proper farewell and call to discipleship after the vigil, to help integrate people into parish ministries if interested. RCIA runs during usual school holidays, June, September, but we do take a break during the December/January holidays.
This year our parishioners have joined the very excellent RCIA programme offered by Holy Redeemer, in Bergvliet. Please contact Bergvliet parish office directly to find out more or contact our parish office for further information.
Brandon Paulse is the RCIA coordinator at Holy Redeemer, Bergvliet.
