Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
Information evening

Are you inquiring or interested in becoming a Catholic?
The church recognises the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) as a process of preparation where a person undertakes a spiritual journey. If you would like to become Catholic or learn more about the Catholic faith this process is a good place to start.

An introduction evening will be held for people interested in learning more about the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults in the Parish Office on Wednesday, 23 August from 7pm to 8.30pm.

Is there anyone you would like to invite – a neighbour, friend, relative?

Are you inquiring or interested in becoming a Catholic?

The aim of the RCIA is to assist people from all backgrounds to explore experiences of God's presence in their life.

The RCIA sessions are a mix of prayer, faith sharing, scripture reading with discussion, instruction and dialogue.

If you would like to become Catholic or learn more about the Catholic faith this process is a good place to start.
At Holy Spirit Parish we gather weekly, commencing in late August each year, breaking over the school holiday period.

Over the months leading to Easter the following year the parish community will walk with you and support you as you discover God's grace in your life. This is a gradual process of inquiry and each persons journey is their own. While weekly gathering suit most people there is flexibility to meet individual needs.

This program caters for a wide audience depending on the needs of those who come forward.

  • You may have been baptised as a child but not received the sacraments of Eucharist or Confirmation
  • You have friends or family who are baptised Catholics and you would like to know more.

While the program is specifically for those interested in becoming Catholic, we also welcome others:

  • You have been away from the church & would like to become part of a parish community once again.
  • You are part of the community but feel there are questions you would like answered.

What if I decide not to continue?

There is no obligation to complete the RCIA sessions, you may withdraw at any time.

What is my next step?
