Welcome to St Francis Parish

You are welcome if you wish to join the Catholic Faith.
Known as Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).
The parish Come and See Group.

Who are we:

We are a group for those who wish to find out more about being members of the Roman Catholic Church.


Aim of course preparation:

To discuss relevant topics of interest in order to provide an insight into what ‘being a Roman  Catholic’ means.



Sessions are held to accommodate individual commitments, so there is no set day or time for meetings. Meetings begin with

a period of prayer/quiet reflection, a look ahead to the next Sunday’s readings, and then a discussion on a particular topic

of interest.


There is no prescriptive course length, individuals are encouraged in their own faith journey and received into the Church at a

mutually agreed time.
