NOTE TO ALL CHURCH CLEANERS

If you need to clean the two fire doors, please make sure to use a soft cloth and don’t use any scourers, as this will take off the special powder coating. Thank you.

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.
