Pope Francis has proclaimed that  ‘We need to be fearlessly open to the Holy Spirit’, and has approved the use of a new resource to help us.  It’s called ‘The Gift’, a six-week interactive course involving dvd teachings, reflection, discussion and sharing in an informal setting.

The course will be running at parishes all over the country, and Bishop Seamus is keen that as many parishioners as possible take part.

The course at St Augustine’s starts on Wednesday 8th June in the Parish Centre.  Refreshments will be available from 7pm, and each session will start at 7.30pm,  finishing about 9pm.  Further sessions will follow on 15th, 22nd, 29th June, and 6th and 13th of July.

We look forward to seeing you on 8th of June.  Even if you feel uncertain, and come to nothing else this Year of Mercy, why not give yourself a chance to grow in faith?
