RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and it is the usual process through which adults join or complete their initiation into the Catholic Church. For additional information, visit the RCIA page of the Lancaster Diocesan website.

RCIA consists of four periods of formation which are marked by rituals that celebrate what has been completed and call a person into the next phase.

Please contact Fr Etienne (01253 762227) or at: firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss things further. It is possible at times for individuals to meet with the priest privately for preparation still based upon the RCIA.
