Adults wishing to learn about the Faith

Each year a programme is run which is designed to provide information about the Faith. It also provides an opportunity to ask questions and discuss issues. Some of the people who join the programme decide they want to become Catholics. Typically the process culminates at the Easter Vigil when applicants are received into the Church during the highlight of the annual liturgy. At any one time the group of people taking part in the programme includes new people who are enquiring about the faith, enquirers who have been with the group for some time (some people simply enjoy the discussions but don't wish to become Catholics), new Catholics and experienced Catholics. The programme can be joined at any time. The start of the programme is publicised in the late summer.
