Easter Vigil 2017
During the Easter Vigil, 15th April 2017, Sue Hartopp and Ryan Shaw were baptised into the Catholic Church and Mark Turner and Paul Lane were received into our faith. Sue, Ryan, Mark and Paul were also Confirmed and received Communion for the first time.
Please keep them in your prayers
An Open Evening is held at the beginning of October each year to which anyone interested in becoming a Catholic, whether baptised or not, are invited to come along and learn more about our faith.
A small team of catechists including our Priests encourage and support those interested in sharing their life experiences and their need of God; to an understanding of the Mass and the Sacraments and to explore Scripture, traditions and practices and the life and teachings of the Church. We learn about the different ways to pray and meditate; about Advent, Lent and the great feast of Easter which is the climax of the year and the time when those who feel ready, are received into our Community
The aim is to help each other come into a personal relationship with God the Father, Jesus His Son and the Holy Spirit and come to realise the wonderful gift of faith in which God’s compassion, mercy and love are everlasting. He sent His Son into the world to redeem us and made the ultimate sacrifice that we might share eternal life with Him
He is everywhere and He knows and loves everyone of us.
