We are coming to the end of the RCIA Program.
Tonight we will be in the church practising the different parts of the ceremony so you will all know what to do on Sunday. We will finish with a special prayer time in the Church.
Sunday May 14th 5.00pm is the Ceremony of Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Communion.
The following sessions after you have received the sacraments are aiming to encourage you to live your christian calling of love and service in the world.
To help do this we will listen to some people and visit some places where our parish family members serve.
