“To think as Mary, judge as Mary, feel and act as Mary in all things” 

(Marist Fathers’ Constitutions)

























Welcome to this helpful presentation on the Rite of Christian Initiation. 


Your search for a deeper and more loving relationship with God, which has lead you to this significant moment in your life, will be enhanced by your participation in the RCIA course.  It will help you to respond to the God who walks with you as companion and guide.  Further, your life will be enriched by the people you meet, the thoughts and feelings you share, the rituals you experience, and your encounter with the person of Jesus. 


Enter into the course with confidence knowing that the God of mystery is inviting you to receive the gift of faith.  It is this gift, faith in Jesus, that will enrich you.


On behalf of our parish community at St Patrick's, we wish you every blessing as you take this important step in your life.


Fr Ray Chapman, SM

Parish Priest
