RCIA Preparation 2019 Jan to April
for St Swithun’s & Our Lady of Lourdes Parish
Are You Interested in Becoming a Catholic? – Maybe you are baptized but have not been confirmed or have not received your first communion? – Have you always wanted to learn more about your faith and become part of a community? The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) provides an opportunity for adults thinking of joining the Church to learn more about the Catholic faith. Adult Catholics who have not been confirmed or who have not celebrated their first communion are also invited to be part of this process.
Through RCIA you journey through an engaging, challenging, enriching experience that is designed to help you come closer to God, and the Church. To become Catholic this Easter Vigil 20th April – please come for the very important meeting on 31ST January (THURSDAY) from 6.45pm to 8.30pm in the Presbytery (105 Waverley Rd);
You become a Catholic by receiving the Sacraments. In our Catholic Faith, the Sacraments have a tremendous importance. We believe that Jesus Christ instituted the seven Sacraments as the means by which He would share His life with us.
