During Advent, the Dad’s Group ran an exciting new Catholic formation course, called Sycamore, developed by Westminster Diocesan priest, Fr Stephen Wang. We are now offering another course during Lent, for six-weeks on Zoom with all new content!
The course is structured to provide parishioners with the opportunity to share and grow in their faith together as a community. Each week we will come together, sharing our news and a prayer, before we watch a short video about the week’s topic, breaking briefly during the video to reflect as small groups on the topic.
The Lent Course will run every Wednesday for 6 weeks, starting on Wednesday 24 February, starting at 7:30pm.
Please feel free to invite your friends/family from both inside and outside the parish. We are looking forward to sharing this exciting new course with you all!
If you want to know more about Sycamore before the course, all the Sycamore resources are freely available on-line
There is also feedback on the Advent course from attendees on the parish website.
There is also no need to have attended the Advent course, or to attend all 6 weeks of the Lenten course.
