Enquirers

Are you interested in finding out more about what being a Catholic means?
Jesus Christ

We see our role is to share the "Good News" with those who come to us seeking and enquiring about the Catholic Church. Some enquirers decide to become members of the Church, but there is no obligation to do so!

Fellow Catholics have also found the meetings of interest; they can be a valued support and are welcome to attend.

We meet regularly with Father Kevin during the year, starting in the Autumn (although people are welcome to join us at any point). We follow a programme designed to present and discuss Cathollic belief, practice and tradition. On the first Sunday in Lent, enquirers who wish to join the Church gather with enquirers from the other parishes in our diocese to meet the Bishop in the Cathedral at Arundel. In 2008 there were about three hundred who thus enrolled. Candidates are usually received in their parish churches during the Easter Vigil.
