BECOMING A CATHOLIC at St Mary's Cathedral

RCIA - RITE OF ELECTION - 1st Sunday in Lent - March 10th 2019

On the First Sunday of Lent the Cathedral RCIA group joined with the other RCIA groups in the diocese for the Rite of Election, where the Church welcomes and officially "chooses" all those (134 people this year) who are preparing for the Sacraments of Initiation at the Easter Vigil - they are now called the "Elect".

Listen to address by Bishop Seamus:


If you would like to become a Catholic, or find out more about the Catholic Church, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Each year we offer a programme for people to explore what it means to be a Catholic and find out more about the teachings of the Catholic Church. This programme is called the Journey in Faith or Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.

The Cathedral Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), or Journey in Faith sessions take place each week on Tuesday evenings in the Cloister.

We would be delighted to welcome you to these evenings. More information from the Cathedral Office.
