In Baptism we are made one with Christ and a member of the Church. We are claimed by Christ when we are marked with the sign of the cross and joined to Christ as we are baptised with water.

Sacraments of Initiation

The Sacraments of Initiation are the three rites that introduce a person into the Church. Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist are the Sacraments received, which welcome new members into our community of faith.

Becoming a Catholic


Becoming a Catholic is a spiritual journey that is firstly about developing a closer relationship with Jesus Christ. This process takes place within a parish community and unfolds in a way that is specific to you, your story and your needs.

RCIA for Children

For children wishing to make their sacraments outside of the yearly Sacraments of Initiation Program, the Chisholm Pastoral Region runs an alternate program called RCIA for Children during school terms.
