We are a faith community of over 800 families and part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Victoria. The parish was created in 1912 under the patronage of Our Lady of Lourdes. Our present church, dedicated to Saint Patrick was completed in 1960 and the Parish Centre and St. Clare Villa, a life-lease residence for seniors, were added in 1999.

St Patrick's School, which opened in 1956 provides Kindergarten through Grade 7 and emphasizes both the academic and spiritual development of our students.

What is RCIA?

Saturday, July 1, 2017

What is RCI A? The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a journey of faith which follows a sacramental process of conversion for adults seeking full initiation into the Catholic Community.

It is one “Rite” divided into various periods along the journey of faith:
a. Inquiry - initial conversion, learning about the Catholic faith, hearing the Gospel
b. Catechumenate - deepening of faith
c. Purification and Enlightenment (coincides with Lent) - intense preparation for the following
sacraments of initiation: Baptism (if not previously baptized in another Christian Church), Eucharist, Reconciliation and Confirmation.
d. Mystagogia - entering more deeply into the mystery; new experience of Sacraments
and community.
Who is invited? We welcome everybody who wants to join our Catholic Church. If you are not
baptized. If you are baptized but not confirmed. If you are baptized in another Christian
Community. If you are Catholic but want to deepen your faith… You are invited to join us.
Where? St Patrick’s Parish, Pastoral Centre.
When? Each Tuesday from 6:30-8:00 pm & various Sun gatherings from 12 Sep 2017 to 24 Apr 2018.
RCIA at St Patrick’s offers adult instruction in the faith as well as a living experience of the
Church Community. Adults receive the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist during the
Easter Vigil (Sat 31 March 2018) —a Spirit-filled night complete with mystery and awe as we remember how the Lord arose from the dead!
