Becoming Catholic

For any friends or family members who wish to become Catholics, the Parish runs a program called Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA).

Co-ordinator: Dewi Suryani – 0488 088 768

This program aims to prepare participants for the reception of the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist at Easter each year.

The program covers all aspects of becoming a Catholic.

Meetings are held for one hour every week at a time that is convenient for participants. Participants are expected to prepare for each lesson by reading a chapter of a book and to participate in discussions at the meeting.

It is very good if the candidates have the personal support of Parishioners who can act as Sponsors and Godparents.

Anyone interested in participating in any way, please contact Father Alo at the Parish Office.
