Journey of Faith (RCIA)
Journey of Faith is designed for adults who would like to join the Catholic Church. It is also known as RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults).
It is a series of sessions exploring the Catholic Faith, in a group setting with sponsors, catechists and clergy, and is usually led by our parish priest. Candidates mark their faith journey by liturgical rites along the way in the presence of the parish community (Rite of Welcome, Rite of Election etc). For the Catechumen it is a personal journey of encounter with God.
The Journey of Faith sessions usually begin in October and continues until Easter. The non-baptised adults are received into the Church through baptism during the Easter Vigil. Baptised non-Catholics are also confirmed during the Vigil.
