Developing Spirituality

What We Offer

Journey in Faith

The Journey in Faith Group provides an opportunity for those thinking of joining the Catholic Church to learn more and eventually to follow the RCIA course that will lead to receiving the Sacraments of Initiation at Easter. The Journey in Faith Group is also an opportunity for anyone else to deepen their knowledge and understanding of their faith and to support those who are just beginning their journey.  Meetings take place in the presbytery on Sunday evenings 7.00 to 8.30 pm

For 2015/16 the parish is embarking on a new initiative called "Developing Sprituality". This is aimed at enhancing spirituality and knowledge of the Catholic Christian faith within the parish.

Throughout the year we will be holding talks, prayer groups, reading groups. This page will be regularly updated with the latest events that are planned and resources such as previous talks, documents, videos etc.
