Paula with The RCIA Team

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is a year long preparatory course for those seeking to enter full communion with the Catholic Church. Our newest member, Paula Kennedy, was welcomed into the life of the Church on Holy Saturday by a packed congregation at St. Augustine’s. It was a night of great joy for both her family and extended family who supported Paula throughout this faith journey. The parish family also welcomed Paula as a new member  of the community.

We wish Paula every happiness as she begins this new chapter in her life as a full and active member of our parish community.  May the grace of the Holy Spirit which was poured out upon her that night strengthen her in her Christian vocation and may the Risen Lord remain with her always.If you would like to know more about the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) process click on the link here or speak to one of the clergy.
