The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), or Ordo Initiationis Christianae Adultorum (OICA) is a process developed by the Catholic Church for prospective converts to Catholicism who are above the age of infant baptism. Candidates are gradually introduced to aspects of Catholic beliefs and practices. The basic process applies to adults and older children, with younger children initiated through an adapted version sometimes incorrectly referred to as the Rite of Christian Initiation of Children (RCIC).
The RCIA course runs every year from around September/October until the Easter weekend (term time only). If you would like to enrol on the next course or would like further information about the course then please contact the parish office. You can also find some information by visiting the RCIA website at www.rcia.org.uk.
