Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

We have added Fr Guy de Gaynesford’s written RCIA course to this site.  We are very grateful to him for making it available to us.  In 26 sections he describes the key aspects of the Catholic faith.  It was written with the aim of instructing those seeking to enter the Catholic Church and so it will be of special interest to any reading this who are considering taking that step.  Equally, sections can be selected individually by those who are already Catholics and who would like an accessible refresher course!   The course can be found here
