RCIA Rite of Election- First Sunday in Lent 2020

The Rite of Election took place on the First Sunday of Lent in the Cathedral. The 143 people throughout the diocese who have been preparing to become members of the Church at Easter were presented to the Bishop and enrolled as the Elect for the six weeks of Lent.

Listen to Homily given by Fr Adrian Dixon

The Book of the Elect, in which they wrote their names during the Ceremony, is displayed in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, so that we may pray for them during the final stage of their Journey in Faith. The following people have been preparing through the RCIA programme here at the Cathedral: David, Scott, Tina, Kerry, Jamie, Taimoor, Emma, Herbert, Jackson, Ronnie. We offer them the support of our prayers.

RCIA - Becoming a Catholic

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.
