Parish Mission week runs from 9th-14th July

Parish Mission week runs from 9th-14th July. This will be an inspiring and fun way for everyone in the Parish to explore and deepen their faith. You are also encouraged to invite family and friends who may have drifted away from the church, or indeed anyone who is intrigued to find out more about the Catholic faith.

Led by Catholic lay people, the daytime and evening Mission talks will present practical ways in which our faith can help us deal with everyday life, families, children and so forth. The week will finish with a Parish celebration day on Sunday July 14th.

Although some sessions are aimed at particular audiences, in fact anyone – whether practicing Catholic or not - will benefit from any of the talks. Click here to download Poster for Parish Mission.
