The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults starts in November each year and finishes after Pentecost. This year (2012) we have twelve adults joining us from other denominations and three Catholics returning to full practice. We meet every Wednesday (during term time) from 7.30 pm to 9.00 pm in the church hall.
Generally the evening comprises of prayer, biblical reading and sharing, input on a topic (see below the list of dates and topics) and discussion. We try in as far as possible to make the Gospel relevant to our everyday living.
Many of our Catholics who have been through the RCIA programme return to support the new group and after a few years they come as sponsors. It is a most enjoyable way of growing in faith as we always learn from one another. The evenings are open to all. The candidates are expected to attend regularly. It is wonderful being a part of the group. Their commitment is a marvellous testimony. Three cheers to our faith journey.
