For adults who would like to find out more about the Catholic Church there is a special programme called RCIA “The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults.” This helps people discern God’s will for them and to discover if becoming a Catholic is for them. This is a process best characterised in the words of Jesus to his first disciples “Come and see!”
The Rite of Christian Initiation is based on the process of conversion and proceeds gradually, in stages. The first stage is called the period of inquiry (or the pre-catechumenate). This is when the individual first expresses an interest in becoming a Christian or a Catholic, and begins to explore, with the help of the parish community, what his or her relationship with Christ might be and how that might be enriched and deepened by joining this Christian community.
If you would like to find out more St Bride’s has an RCIA group to help and all inquiries are warmly welcomed.
