Becoming Catholic

The RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. Please contact the office on 9809 3536 to register your interest.

RCIA in its purest form is for those adults who have not yet been baptised-however in reality those that are converting from other Christian religions often go through the RCIA as well- and certain provisions need to be made for this.

The RCIA is a process by which adults are introduced to the life of the Catholic Church through catechesis and liturgy.

When an adult becomes Catholic they receive all 3 sacraments of initiation at the same time-Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation.

Vatican II said that RCIA should be the proper way of initiating adults.
