St. Joseph's Catholic Church



Rite of Catholic Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

The RCIA is the name for the programme by which people who are enquirers searching for faith are helped in their journey, and hopefully welcomed into the Church.  The group is led by a small team with Father Antony.

The group is made up of people who come searching for faith, some who are searching for a home in the Catholic Church from other Christian traditions, and some who are Catholics who are searching for a way back into the practice of their faith.  All are welcome in this group.

The best time to join this group is near the beginning of the programme in Autumn, and the details are published in the newsletter and online at

However, you can speak to Father Antony, the parish priest about exploring your faith at any time.
