Becoming a Catholic: Rite of Election

In September 2016 the Church of the Sacred Heart began the RCIA programme for the 1st time. Although many people have joined the Church through the Church of the Sacred Heart, there had never been a formal programme.

We have been delighted to accompany 6 individuals on their faith journery and educate them in the Catholic faith. Philip Cook, Jane Ford, Lukas Ramauskas, David Kane, Amy McCrudden and Yoshi Shibisaki have now completed another stage in their journey and took part in the Rite of Election on Sunday 5th March with Archbishop Leo Cushley in St Mary’s Metropolitan Cathedral. We continue to hold them in prayer as they prepare to be welcomed into the Catholic Church this Easter.
