Advanced Nurture Course

Fr Victor will be running a new advanced nurture course aimed at those that want to go deeper and develop a real appreciation of their Christian Faith. The course will be particularly suited to those that wish to exercise leadership roles within the parish.

This will be a seven week course beginning on Tuesday 3rd October at 7:15pm at the Vicarage. Each session will last an hour and a half and will involve active participation by those taking part.

Participants will look at core aspects of Christian belief, examine some of the moral questions arising from the practice of the Christian tradition, and learn how to Catechise and pass on the precious gift of faith to others.

Harvest Festival

Our Harvest Festival takes place on Sunday 1st October.

Please join us at our 10:00am Parish Mass when we give thanks to God for His great goodness in providing the bountiful harvest of crops and  fruit upon which we all still depend.

Gifts of dried and tinned foodstuffs donated at this service will be used to help vulnerable and temporarily disadvantaged families in the local community.
