RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION FOR ADULTS (RCIA)
(Baptism, Confirmation and First Communion for Adults)
The "Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults" is the process by which the Catholic Church welcomes new adult members into the Catholic Christian Community. Our parish of Our Lady of the Holy Souls offers a Faith Education Programme and process for adults who wish to be baptised or welcomed fully into the Catholic Church. It is a programme of deepening of faith, of conversion and of an on-going realisation of what it means to be part of a living, praying and loving body of Christ. It is about how we live as Christians in a changing and challenging world.
Our parish pays attention to the needs of those adults who wish to become Catholics and embrace full communion with the Catholic Church. Those welcome to enroll for this programme include:
• Those who have not been baptised,
• Those who have been baptised in a christian church other than the Catholic Church,
• Those who have been baptized in the Catholic Church and not yet received the Eucharist and Confirmation.
If you wish to explore and inquire about the possibility of becoming a member of the Catholic Church, then we invite you to contact the Parish Office on 020 8969 2660 or speak to the Parish Priest, Father Peter Scott.
Perhaps you know someone who is interested in becoming a full member of the Catholic Church, please invite them to get in touch. We will be delighted to meet you.
The course starts in September and lasts until Pentecost in the following year. Sessions are held every Tuesday evening. For more information please speak with Father Peter or Sister Angela.
