Week of Guided Prayer

Our Ignatian retreat in daily life is this week. The opening meeting is Sunday 21st January, after evening Mass. If you have signed up to meet with a prayer guide, please come to the opening meeting, so that you can be allocated to your guide and arrange a time to meet. The evening workshops are open to everyone: these are (all at 7.30pm): Tuesday – Ways of Praying; Wednesday – Discernment and Decision making; Thursday – Humanity in God. The church will be open each day for private prayer, and there will be extra slots for the Sacrament of Reconciliation – see the retreat leaflet. The cost of the retreat is £10 for students and retired people, £20 for those in paid work – but please speak to Fr Andrew if the cost is a problem – we don’t want anyone to miss out on the retreat.

Journey in Faith

Our Journey in Faith programme re-commences on Tuesday 23 January in the Parish Room. Although designed primarily for those looking to be baptised, received into the Catholic Church and/or confirmed, all parishioners and students are very welcome to come along and to explore the Catholic faith.

For our first session this term we join with the team from St Beuno’s Jesuit Spirituality Centre and others from the parish and chaplaincy to explore “Ways of Prayer.” As a result, the start time for this session only will be 7:30pm.

Why Partnerships?

Bishop Séamus describes our Partnerships as: ‘A group of parishes agreeing to work together, to share resources, both human and material, to become stronger and better equipped for furthering the Kingdom of God’. To support partnerships a document called ‘Why Partnerships? – Some Key Messages’ is now available, providing further background and the key reasons why the decision was made to establish partnerships around the Diocese.
