Faith Matters - Spring 2010

Priesthood

Faith Matters – the Catholic lecture series– returns on Tuesday evenings in Lent to address, in this special year, the theme of the priesthood.  All Lectures start at 7.00pm and are held at Westminster Cathedral Hall, Ambrosden Avenue, London SW1.

Launching this year of reflection on the call to priesthood, Pope Benedict invited us to give thanks for ‘the immense gift which priests represent, not only for the Church, but also for humanity itself’.  This series of lectures aims to explore this gift from various angles, reflecting on how the priestly vocation continues to be lived out in the Church and at the heart of our world. We hope that through the participation of many from parishes around the Diocese and of our young people we can help nourish the life of our parish communities, deepen our  understanding of priesthood and foster priestly vocations.

Adult Formation Summary

Old picture

The Agency for Evangelisation is working to help parishes nurture the faith formation of adults, affording all an understanding of what the Church teaches and a vocabulary with which to explain their faith and reach out to others. Alongside the faith sharing resources it produces for small groups, the Agency supports adult faith formation by helping parishes develop their own pastoral plan and by organising talks and events around the diocese which parishes can tap into.

There are many successful adult faith formation programmes to choose from. Each of them has something to offer and can play a valuable part in the development of a comprehensive parish plan.
