Interested in joining the Catholic Church…..always wanted to learn more ?  Well, inter-parish cooperation on RCIA [the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults] was something noted at the first Cluster meeting as being a good example of existing collaboration. St Mary of the Angels, Camelon are planning to host  weekly RCIA sessions beginning this coming September and so if you or anyone you know is interested in exploring the Catholic way of Christian discipleship and perhaps becoming a full member of the Catholic Church, then please speak to Fr John as soon as possible.
