An important part of the Cathedral’s life is welcoming new Catholics.
The programme of adult formation in the faith is known as the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).
It is a wonderful series of steps and stages that can lead to baptism, confirmation and Eucharist (Communion).
Usually adult baptisms (or ‘Reception’ if you already have received a Christian baptism) take place at the great Easter Vigil Mass on Saturday evening. It is a wonderful and moving ceremony that coincides with the first Mass of the Resurrection.
You can join the RCIA at any time. There is a course currently underway ~ all enquirers are welcome, there will be no pressure to sign up. We take you as you are and go at your pace!
