KNOW SOMEONE INQUIRING ABOUT THE CATHOLIC FAITH

The Rite of Catholic Initiation for Adults prepares new members to join our Catholic faith; and helps baptised Catholics in renewing their faith. Faith development and growth is achieved in a friendly atmosphere, through presentations, sharing and reflection. Under the guidance of our team and accompanied by friends (sponsors), the candidates will take a spiritually-enriched journey, culminating in their reception into the Church on Easter Vigil night.

RCIA for 2014/15 will commence Tuesday 22 July. The Parish of Willetton invites all who are interested in the Catholic faith to an Information Evening on Tuesday 1 July at 7.30pm-9.00pm at the Parish Centre's Large Meeting Room. If you or someone you know has expressed an interest in the Catholic faith, please come along.

For more infomation about RCIA, please visit the parish website or contact Howard on 0412 177 378.
