Due to the Covid pandemic the RCIA programme has been suspended. Further notices will be in the newsletter. Please contact the office with any further queries. 

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a programme for non-baptised adults who want to become full members of the Catholic Church. We also include in our programme those who are already baptised Christians but not in full communion with the Catholic Church. The programme at Holy Angels is therefore open to anyone, of any denomination or none, whether or not they are already baptised Christians.

The programme is run by volunteers who want to share their faith and accompany candidates on their journey in faith, which enquirers make with the whole parish, including the parish priest, over a six to seven month period, beginning in September with a ‘taster evening’. The process culminates in Baptism and/or reception into full communion with Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil.

Candidates are never placed under any obligation and are free to leave the preparation process at any time.
