Do YOU wish to become a CATHOLIC?

About our Programme:

  • Our Parish runs a programme for adults who wish to become a Catholic or explore the possibilities of joining the Catholic Church.
  • The programme takes at least 18months and is called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults or the RCIA.
  • It begins with an Inquiry Period, which gives an introduction into the teachings and practices of the Catholic faith.
  • The Inquiry Period commences on Tuesday 1st May at 7.00pm at St. Mary’s, 40 Seddon Street, Rotorua for four Tuesdays until 22nd
  • After the Inquiry Period, those who are interested will attend weekly lessons which runs every Wednesday at 7.00 pm also at St Mary’s.
  • It takes time for adults to be formed in the traditions and practices of the Catholic Church.
  • The RCIA is a time conversion.
  • An essential part of the RCIA is to attend Sunday Mass which is the source and summit of Catholic Church.
  • Adults normally enter the Church at the Easter Vigil Mass.
  • Our intake is not limited to the month of May. Our programme for adults is continuous and people are welcome to join at any time. We meet every Wednesday at 7.00 pm at St Mary’s.
