Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A)

“The questions of faith are real in our world today. You may remember the marvellous opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games in early September. Professor Stephen Hawking, speaking from his wheel-chair, said: ‘Ever since the dawn of civilisation people have craved an understanding of the underlying order of the universe………why it is as it is and why it exists at all.’ This question, and many others, team in modern minds. What does the gift of faith have to say? The journey of faith is a great adventure into meaning, into love, into the fullness of being, into happiness, into eternal life. The Year of Faith can enkindle in us again the joy and companionship of this adventure and help us to realise that we have so much to offer to our world today.” (Source: Pastoral Letter for the Year of Faith from Archbishop Vincent Nichols)
