Find your local community

The best way to explore becoming Catholic is to do so by connecting with real Catholic people in the Catholic community nearest to you! Here, you can get a real experience of what Catholic life is like and the people there can accompany you on your journey. To find a Catholic Church near you, use our simple ‘Find a church’ tool here.

Get involved

Getting involved in the events of your local church is a great way to explore the faith in more depth. Attend Mass, find a prayer group or join for social events.

Explore your questions

When you feel ready to explore the big questions, you can start the formal process towards becoming a Catholic. This process is called RCIA, which stands for ‘the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults’. When you feel ready, enquire with your local priest or parish office about beginning RCIA.
