Rites of Christian Initiation of Adults

rcia

 The RCIA is the Liturgical and Catechetical process,designed for adults attracted by Christ and His teachings

It supports and asista them as they seek yo respond more deeply and to enter into the communion of the Catholic Church.

The journey of initiation into the Catholic Church is a gradual process and takes place within the community of the faithful.

Team members from the parish meet with the candidates,usually weekly and these sessions provide the framework which enables candidates to grow in understanding of the faith,and to gradually become part of the parish community of faith and its way of life.

A typical session would begin with exploring the Sunday Gospel, looks at its links to life and its connection to the Liturgical Celebration. Discussions then explore the traditions and teachings of the Catholic Church.

The journey of faith has no definite time limit and often varies between six months and one year.

Throughout the Catholic Church however,the Baptism of Adults will usually take place during the celebration of the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday night.

From Father John
Dear parishioners, visitors & friends, On behalf of Fr. John, 
I invite us to share Deacon Jeremy’s reflection on the gospel. God bless you all.
 
THE GOOD SHEPHERD
 
For many of us, we may ask what does it mean to be a good shepherd? To be a good shepherd takes upon itself the responsibility to care for not only oneself, but also the care of others. What is the role of a priest? A priest is not only a spiritual father who has a deep and spiritual relationship with God, but he has a pastoral duty to take care of the faithful in his parish. What are the roles of parents? Parents are responsible for the upbringing of their children so that they may grow up to become well and mature human beings amongst society. These are the roles and responsibilities that we see on a daily basis. The role of the good shepherd takes many forms in our society whether that be at home, at church or at work. Some are employed to public services and do this for the sake of personal ambitions and success. Some are employed because they are passionate for the work that they do. Some may even be indifferent towards others because of a lack of passion, which in effect, treating their roles and duties as mere burdens. But this is not so for Jesus our Lord. As Jesus said in the Gospel of John, “The sheep that belong to me listen to my voice; I know them and they follow me.” Jesus knows each and every one of us. He continues to be among us and inspire us to turn to his ways. No matter how difficult we may be towards him, He will never treat us with indifference. He desires that all would turn to him and follow him. That is his mission for the universal church. And everyone is called to join his flock. God bless you all.
