Evangelising the Baptised - our seven week course continues this Tuesday -
 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.  Everyone is very welcome to attend.
