Are you interested in becoming a Catholic?

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is a process designed for adults seeking to become members of the Roman Catholic Church.

The course content can be tailored to suit the preferences and needs of each individual parish but aims to reach its conclusion with reception into the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil Mass on Holy Saturday - the day before Easter Sunday.

Currently, at Christchurch, the RCIA course starts after Easter with meetings every Monday evening at 7.30 until 9.00 pm but there are no meetings during school holidays or on Bank holidays. The evening is divided into two sessions: during the first we work through the Scripture readings for the following Sunday. During the second session we look at the teachings of Christianity and of the Catholic Church in the hope that candidates will be ready for reception at Easter.
