Sunday 7th – Sunday 14th October
This month we have a special and rare opportunity to allow God to help our faith grow. We are joining in a week of Shared Mission with our friends from Sacred Heart Church in special events which will give us and others a chance to deepen our trust in the Lord. The mission week is being led by Father Roy Shelley, a Salesian Catholic Priest from Carmel, California and there’s a special invitation to an evening event each day from Monday to Friday. Each night, there is a particular invitation extended to those who work in particular ministries, when Fr. Roy will speak about how our particular role can help us and others come closer to God.
