Evangelising the Baptised - our seven week course begins this Tuesday - 12th February - 7.30pm in the parish centre.  It's a back to

basics course on the Good News: what we believe about God, why Jesus came into the world, the role of the Holy Spirit and the Church. We're

delivering the course with the help of Crown Jesus Ministries, a non-denominational Christian group based in Belfast.  They are experts on

evangelising and hopefully they will inspire us Catholics to be more confident about encouraging others to discover Christ. 

This first week we'll be focusing on how God the Father loves us just as we are, on the parable of the Prodigal Son, and on praying

the Our Father.  Everyone is very welcome to attend.



Trócaire is looking for volunteers in the Diocese to bring social justice alive in their parishes. Contact 9080 8036 or
