BECOMING A CATHOLIC at St Mary's Cathedral

If you would like to become a Catholic, or find out more about the Catholic Church, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Each year we offer a programme for people to explore what it means to be a Catholic and find out more about the teachings of the Catholic Church. This programme is called the Journey in Faith or Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.

The Cathedral Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), or Journey in Faith sessions take place each week on Tuesday evenings in the Cloister.

We would be delighted to welcome you to these evenings. More information from the Cathedral Office.

RCIA - RITE OF ACCEPTANCE - 2nd Sunday in Advent - December 9th 2018

During the Rite of Acceptance into the order of the Catechumenate, the enquirers, who have been taking part in the RCIA process here at the Cathedral since September, take the next step towards becoming a full member of the Catholic Church.
The candidates declare their intention to the Church and the Church, in turn, carrying out it’s apostolic mission, accepts them as people who intend to become its members.
Today at the 10.00am Mass we welcome Fay, Michael, Joanna, Edward, Michael and Jadeson and we offer them all our prayers of support on their continuing journey of faith.
