The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, the process by which adults become Catholics, has been a regular feature of parish life at St Michael’s. It reaches a climax on Holy Saturday night during the Easter Liturgy.
If you’ve never been baptised, or if you are a baptised member of another Christian denomination and would like to find out more about the Catholic faith; or if you’re a Catholic who would like to learn more about the faith, you’re welcome!
