Anointing of the Sick
Becoming Catholic (RCIA)
An important part of the Cathedral's life is
welcoming new catholics
The programme of adult formation in the faith is known as the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).
It is a wonderful series of steps and stages that can lead to baptism, confirmation and Eucharist (Communion).
Usually adult baptisms (or 'Reception' if you were already baptised in another Christian denomination) take place the the great Easter Vigil Mass early on Easter Sunday morning. It is a wonderful and moving ceremony that coincides with the first Mass of the Resurrection on Easter Sunday morning.
You can join the RCIA at any time. There is a course currently underway ~ enquirers are welcome and we would like you to know that there will be no pressure to sign up. We take you as you are and go at your pace!'
