RCIA

At the Easter Vigil this year we will receive ten people into the Church: Rowena, Jolanda, Carmen, Timothy, Justin, Tom, Laura, Jonathan, Elizabeth and John. This is the end of a long journey of faith for them and I ask you to keep them all in your prayers this week as they prepare to make this important step in their lives. I encourage you also to try to attend the Easter Vigil which is a beautiful celebration

Childrens’ Catechists Needed

We need new catechists to join our Childrens classes in early September. Classes take place in this church 9:30-10:10am on Sunday mornings during school term. The more volunteers we have; the easier it is to job-share. As this role involves working with our P1-P7 children, who are at a vulnerable age, applicants will need to receive regulatory safeguarding (PVG) approval in advance of taking up the position. Therefore, we are seeking commitment now so that the safeguarding process can be completed with no last-minute rush. If you could help, please speak to Fr Jamie or Mary Buchan before or after mass. Thank you – we would love to hear from you!

Have you been Confirmed?

For many and various reasons, sometimes people never actually get confirmed. If you are an adult who has never been confirmed, the Cathedral will be running a course for you during Lent this year with a view to Confirmation at the Easter Vigil on 20th April. Meetings will take place on Monday nights at 7pm in the Cathedral House. If you would like to know more or register for the course, please e-mail Sr. Mary Simone: cathedralhouse.
