"Where the Bishop is, there let the multitude of believers be; 
even as where Jesus is, there is the Catholic Church"

Saint Ignatius of Antioch, 1st c. A.D

Do not be afraid of Christ!

He takes nothing away, and he gives you everything.
When we give ourselves to him, we receive a hundredfold in return.
Yes, open, open wide the doors to Christ – and you will find true life.

Pope Benedict XVI


Journey in Faith Group
(RCIA)

 

The Journey in Faith groups are a warm, friendly
and well established method for individuals
to learn about the Good News of Jesus Christ
our Lord and Saviour, and the Church's teachings.

The journey begins in September, culminating in the joyful
celebration of Easter.
The key teachings and doctrines of our Faith are explained
in a series of talks, which are open to people of other faiths
– and no faith – who wish to know more about Catholicism.
Weekly talks are given to inform, enhance and deepen the faith.
While many people choose to become Catholics
at the end of the course, there is no obligation to commit to this step.
Meetings are held on Tuesdays at 7.00pm,
in the Annunciation Parish Centre library and their delivery is shared
by the priests and a qualified catechist.


The power belonging to this divine food
makes it a bond of union.
Its effect is then understood as unity, so that,
gathered into his Body and made members of him,
we may become what we receive.

 

O Sacrament of love,
sign of our unity,
bond of our fraternity,
whoever long for life have here it’s very source.
Let them come here and believe;
unite with You and live.

 

Saint Augustine of Hippo
