Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults Or RCIA – Journey in Faith

An RCIA or Journey in Faith is the programme local Catholic Churches use to help people find out more about the Church and discover what it means to be a Catholic.

It is open to those who are Catholics already but want to know more, but it is especially focused on those who are searching to find a place to discover God and worship within a safe, joyful and supportive community.

It can lead to becoming a full member of the Catholic Church. Process RCIA Courses often start in the Autumn and run through until the following June. A weekly or fortnightly course offers much food for thought but it is by attending Sunday Mass with the wider community of worshippers that things begin to become more deeply touching for our Faith Journey.
