Those who feel ready to take formal steps towards reception into the Catholic faith are invited to join RCIA. This is a programme for those who may or may not have been baptised, but have not received the sacrament of first holy communion or confirmation. Some people who have been part of the Discovery Group choose to join RCIA, where their journey in faith becomes more focussed.
The RCIA group meets two Sundays every month, beginning in October and culminating at Easter. Participants may then become members of the Catholic Church, if they feel ready to take this step.
