As Catholics, we encounter the real presence of Jesus Christ through the Eucharist or Holy Communion.  We believe that Jesus Christ is truly present in our midst.

The celebration of the Eucharist is not a private devotion but rather a communal gathering. We come together at the same time and in the same place so that we can take part in a common action.  It is often referred to as “communion,” a joining together of the members of the community, not only with God but also with each other.

Any who has been received into the Catholic Church and is over the age of 7 can receive Holy Communion once they have been through a preparation programme.  Please see programme details below:

Adult Reception into the Catholic Church

The Catholic Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is a programme for anyone over aged 18 who would like to be received into full communion with the Catholic church, whether or not they have previously been baptised in a Christian church.  We currently plan to run the next programme once we are over the COVID pandemic restrictions. 

 The next programme will start in October 2023 and candidates are received into the Church the following Easter.  More information can be found in the current newsletter.
