RCIA Group
Do you ever wonder what life is really all about? Why is there suffering in the world? Is there really a loving God who loves me just as I am? Is there life after death? As a non- Catholic, are you wondering if the Catholic Church can really make a difference in my life and in the world?

These are just a few of the many questions that most people ask themselves, or others, at several times in their lives. The RCIA Group (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is specifically set up to help answer these and many other questions - the aim being to transmit the truth, love and beauty of the Catholic Church. Sadly, most people's impression and understanding of the Catholic Church is formed by the media - which inevitably means it is negatively biased - at best! However, this group looks at the official message, teachings, history and morale teachings of the Catholic Church by reviewing the original source material - rather than an individual's opinion based on current trends.

The group covers topics such as: faith in general and its development through the ages; the life and message of Jesus Christ and start of Christianity; the structure of the Catholic Church; the celebration of key moments within the life of a Catholic; a review of what and why the Catholic Church teaches on moral issues; and how to pray. All sessions take place within a relaxed, comfortable and enjoyable environment - where all are invited to engage in lively discussion and get to the very core of the Gospel message!

If you are asking some of the questions at the start of this article, then maybe this course is for you? The course generally runs from June through to Easter the following year and takes place through monthly meetings in informal settings.
