CATHOLIC BASICS

is an engaging introduction to the Catholic faith in four parts: God, The Church, The Moral Life, Prayer. The course texts are to be used in conjunction with teaching days and contain the topic notes and opportunities for follow-up study. It has two levels: Basics and Basics Plus. No qualifications needed! The first module will be launched on 31st Jan 19 at NORES Luton from 10am-3pm. A full lunch will be provided as well as a course pack. The cost has been kept down to £25 per person (£10 for unwaged). We hope this price will encourage those who feel the course could be of benefit to attend and participate. A poster is on the notice board in the church.

CONFIRMATION

The sessions begin this Sunday evening at 5pm in the hall.
