Interested in Becoming a Catholic?

Within our Parish Vision and Mission statement, we speak of as disciples of Jesus, we embark on a life-long journey of learning and growing in relationship with the Lord, embracing Him as ‘the Way, the Truth, and the Life’ reflected in the way in which we live our lives.  We are called to spread the Good News of Christ making a positive contribution to the world!   The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults [RCIA] is our Catholic response to reaching out to those wishing to know more about being a Catholic.  Soon, that journey will begin.   If you or someone you know, may be pondering about the Catholic Faith, wondering how to answer God’s invitation to them to enter into a relationship with Jesus and with our Church, invite them to

contact us.  I’m available to discuss any queries about RCIA, by contacting me at the Parish Office either in person, or by phone, 9401 6322. Sandy Starbuck.
