RCIA is the Church’s way of forming new Christians and welcoming them into the Catholic Church.  Some people who participate in the RCIA are Christians by virtue of their Baptism in another Christian denomination.  The RCIA process at Our Lady and St Dominic’s caters for both the unbaptized and the baptized and even those who are already members of the Catholic Church who just want to brush up on their understanding of the Catholic faith.  Each year we run a journey of faith course which starts in September and runs through until Pentecost.  Baptism (if appropriate) and Confirmation and Reception into the Church take place at the Easter Vigil.  

RCIA is an acronym of Rite of Christian Initiation in Adults.
