First Holy Communion


Adult Initiation (RCIA)

Becoming a part of
our parish


The parish offers an annual programme of preparation for teenagers baptised as infants who wish to complete their initiation into the Catholic Church.

The programme is designed for children who are in Year 9, and who will be aged 14 or older by the time of Confirmation in May/June.

Usually these candidates will have celebrated their first communion in Year 3, but if they have not done so, they can prepare for Confirmation and Eucharist together.

The programme for 2011-12 is now underway. There will be an opportunity to apply to join the programme for 2012-13 from September 2012.

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful
enkindle in them the fire of Your love.
V. Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created.
R. And You shall renew the face of the earth.
