Do you want to know more about the Catholic Church and her beliefs and practices? Do you want to come closer to God? Are you looking for the true meaning of life, why we are here, and where we are going? Each year we run a group to help with these and many other related enquiries. This is a course of instruction and prayer for those who wish to know more about Jesus Christ and the Church He founded.
This course is mainly for those who desire to become Catholic (whether or not they are already baptised). Adult Catholics who are not yet confirmed and want to receive this Sacrament are also welcome. No need to register. Just come to the first meeting.
The Journey in Faith programme for 2017-18 has been released (see below).
The programme is designed primarily for anyone who wishes to become Catholic, although each individual session can be attended on a stand-alone basis by anyone wishing to know more about the subject.
