Interested in finding out more about the Catholic faith?
If you are an adult and would like to learn more about the Catholic faith, perhaps as a baptised Catholic leading to Confirmation or re-connection with the faith, or as a non-Catholic, whether baptised into another Christian tradition or not, why don’t you consider joining a group that meets weekly during term time. At the Easter Vigil just gone, we celebrated the baptism/ reception/confirmation of eight parishioners who will be meeting for their final weekly sessions during the coming weeks. On Wednesday, 1st May, the group will be having a final celebration at St Bernadette’s, Tilgate at 7.30 pm and this would be an ideal opportunity for those interested in joining the course for next year to meet those who have been meeting for the last year and the Team. If you would like to know more, please contact Fr. Chris on 01293 524176.
‘F13′ Deanery Youth group
Following the success of ‘Faith 2012′ last year, we are continuing our Deanery youth evenings this year, with a slight name change to F13! F13, like Faith 2012, meets at the Friary on the Third Sunday of the month. This year, we will gather for Mass at 5.30pm (a lively youth Mass) and then go to the parish hall afterwards for a short talk followed by a meal. This is open to Year 9s up to young adults. All are welcome, especially any new people. Contact J.Regan@stwilfrids.com for more information.
