Being A Disciple - Online Web Series


7, 14, 21 & 28 JANUARY AT 7:00PM - ONLINE VIA ZOOM

This series over 4 weeks is a joint project between the Diocesan commission of Adult Formation for Mission and Catholic Voices; exploring what does it mean to be disciple of Christ in the Church and how your parish can be a disciple making parish. Each week we will look at one of four principles of being a disciple (Study of the Word, Fellowship, Prayer, Sacramental Life) and they can be developed in our life and how parishes can support these areas too.

St Francis Foodbank


The St Francis foodbank is running a little low and they would be really grateful for any donations. In particular, things which could make up a meal for a vulnerable family. Items can be dropped off in the foyer with no need to come into contact with anyone. Thank you so much in advance for your generosity. For contact details please visit the School website:
