Becoming a Catholic through the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)
The Faith of the Catholic Church is an RCIA course written by Fr Guy de Gaynesford, previous parish priest of this parish, to help him instruct those seeking to come into full communion with the Catholic Church. It can equally well be used by those who are already Catholic but who wish to deepen their understanding and appreciation of the Faith. You are welcome to print and read the sessions as you make your way through the course, or if you wish to select different sections of particular interest to you, please feel free to do so.

The Liturgy of Holy Week The apex and climax of the Church’s year – a single liturgical act of worship spread over three days in three major ceremonies which come to their high point in the Easter Vigil at which candidates are baptised (or received into the Church if they have already been baptised), confirmed and receive Holy Communion
