The Catholic Faith Community Welcomes and invites you:
- if you would like to explore and enquire into the catholic faith with a view possibly of baptism…
- if you would like to explore and enquire into what it is Catholics believe …
- if you need to get a deeper understanding of your catholic faith…
- if you are seeking to return to celebrating your faith…
THE HOLY SPIRIT IS PROMPTING YOU … and the RCIA is for you.
RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and is for individuals from any faith background (and none) who want to explore and enquire into the catholic faith.
It is a weekly series of classes and discussion covering a wide range of aspects of the catholic faith. The weekly sessions last 1hr.30mins.
Participants on RCIA programmes come from all walks of life, ages and backgrounds. What they all have in common is that they felt the call of God urging them to change the direction of their lives.
RCIA is also for cradle Catholics who want a deeper understanding of their catholic faith and for Catholics who have lapsed from the practice of celebrating their faith and whom God is inviting to come back to him.
Ultimately, RCIA is a journey of faith exploration and development, culminating in the reception of the catechumens/candidates into the catholic community at Pentecost, if after their exploration and enquiry into the catholic faith the Holy Spirit inspires them to do so. (Catechumen participants are those who were never baptized. Candidate participants are those who were baptized into another faith denomination).
The RCIA begins at St. Mary’s, Chapel Lane on Thursday 18th October 2018. Please contact Anne McCrossan ASAP to arrange a meeting and register. Tel: 02890 320482 or Email Fr Brian McCann: firstname.lastname@example.org; or Fionnuala E Fionnuala.email@example.com
Please pass on the news of RCIA to others!!
