Welcome to our first Taste and See Mass in the New Year on Sunday 12th January. All are welcome. Holy Mass begins at 3.30pm. Then you are invited to share a meal. We plan to finish by 5.30pm. So much has happened in the Church and the world in this Year of Faith. We want to follow the lead of Pope Francis and become “missionary Disciples” of Our Lord. The New Year is about new beginnings and finding the joy of sharing our faith with our families, our friends and the people we are in contact with. Sometimes a smile can be enough to win the world for Christ. We look forward to welcoming you on this Feast of the Baptism of the Lord – the beginning of His time to win the world back to the Father.

Dear Friends, Following the conclusion of the Year of Faith, our Holy Father, Pope Francis, has published a letter of encouragement to all the faithful based on the findings of the last Bishops’ Synod on New Evangelisation. He encourages each of us and the whole Church to find our calling to missionary conversion and that all our apostolate should have a missionary style. Father Duncan McVicar introduces a programme of putting the Year of Faith into action. – “Schoenstatt – Hearts Afire”. – How do we evangelise?A series of monthly meetings at the Shrine will introduce us to the “Tree of Evangelisation” in ten sessions with time for discussion, refreshments and prayer. Please find enclosed a flyer with the details of the course and a diary with the dates and themes of each of the ten sessions. Please print off and give to the members of your group.
