Seeds of Faith

Pope Francis is encouraging everyone to think about themselves as disciples who spread the Good News. This role is not a comfortable one for English Catholics- however in 2016 with the encouragement of our parish priest and as part of a diocesan wide initiative, an evangelisation group was sent up in the parish.

 

We decided to call the group “Seeds of faith “as we saw the task as two- fold: nurturing the seeds of faith among parishioners and sowing the seeds of faith in the wider community.

The group is simply a means of organising activities and events for everyone in the parish. The task is shared by all parishioners. Participation is growing, with different parishioners feeling able to contribute to different events.

We started by thinking about events that already happened in the parish and how we could adjust what we do, to provide witness.

I you have any ideas to nurture the seeds of faith in out parish community or in the wider community share them with us!

The seeds of faith group meets the third Wednesday of the month in the parish hall or by zoom at 7pm. Contact me, Margaret Cushen if you are interested [email protected]
