Growing in Faith

Now that the restriction on numbers able to gather in the undercroft have been lifted, Bible Study and RCIA are recommencing on 10th and 11th May.  All welcome.

RCIA

All are warmly welcomed to RCIA.  We recommenced on 11th May 2022 and are now looking at The Jesus of the Gospels – His life, teachings and miracles.  Next session on 18th May is Lift High the Cross!

Sessions are usually held in St Paul’s church undercroft, 7.30 – 9.00pm (following Holy Hour on Wednesday evenings). If you are not a Catholic but would like to learn about the Church, whether in view of possibly joining the Church or just to gain more information, or if you are a Catholic but would like to grow in your knowledge of the Faith, please contact one of the priests.

BIBLE STUDY

Bible Study recommenced on 10th May 2022. 

Join us for a study of the Book of Judges and its exciting stories of great figures like Gideon, Samson, Deborah and Judith.

Bible Study is usually held on Tuesday evenings from 7:30pm to 9pm in the church undercroft.  All materials provided. All are welcome!

In the initial 2022 sessions, Father Tim showed some DVDs about biblical stories, Holy Land travelogues.

In 2021 we completed Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible – eight engaging sessions to help you discover the richness of God’s word, looking at the overall themes, timelines & key people in the Bible.

In 2021 we also watched and thoroughly enjoyed Season One and Two of the Video series ‘CHOSEN’ which was an excellent TV series on the life and ministry of Our Lord.

Produced by Angel Studios, you can also watch the videos on a free app called:  The Chosen or watch it online at:  https://watch.angelstudios.com/thechosen/watch
