Christian Faith Journey (RCIA)

Are you interested in embarking on an active Christian faith journey, in making a return to faith, or needing to prepare for Confirmation as an adult? Send email to:   or phone 02086881857 between 9:00 and 17:00hrs Monday to Friday to speak with any of the priests.

There are plenty of ways to become involved and share in the life of the parish before you make that commitment and there are also lots of people and sources of information that will help you as you find your way and learn more about what this Catholic thing really is. Because being Catholic is not just about attending Mass every Sunday. It really is a way of life, a way of seeing the world and it is about being a member of a Christ-centred community and family.

RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and it is run by our Clergy and Catholic laypeople (catechists) and its members often build great bonds and friendships during the course. You emerge from it not just a much better-informed person ready to make the commitment to become a Catholic but as a member of the community who has already begun to contribute to parish life and worship.

But the initial steps are fairly easy. Please accept our welcome and spend time looking at the website and check our weekly parish newsletter; we will look forward to meeting you sometime soon in church.

Returning to Catholicism?

If visiting this site is the first step back towards the Church we are very pleased to welcome you. 

Take as much time as you want to see what we are like. Please pop into Mass and discover what it’s like now and to see how our parish might serve your needs. Although the core of the Mass (the Eucharist) never changes and is at the heart of our faith, often the way we come to that sacred place is important. So, if you have children, you might find the Family Mass to be a real answer to your prayers. But if you are on your own or it seems just a bit too lively for you, please visit again and see what a quieter Mass might be like. Check out our range of Masses and Mass times here.
