On 25th January 2020, 60 people from 14 parishes joined Bishop William Crean for a training day on how to run our diocesan faith formation programme Grow in Love of the Lord: Rediscover the Joy in your own Faith. This initiative is growing year on year and is finding its way into the hearts of those who participate in it. It is primarily offered as a support to families who have children preparing for the sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion for the first time. The themes explored on the day were: Called and Chosen; God Gives Us Good News; We Can Lose our Way; We Hear the Word of God at Mass; At Mass, Jesus’ Disciples Gather Together.
Bishop Crean said: “It is wonderful to know that this new and important initiative is taking root at parish level to support family life in the practice of the faith. May it help bring many people – grown-ups and young people alike – ever closer to the fullness of life in Christ.”
