As with our ongoing faith journeys, a ‘YEAR OF FAITH’ is about ....

  • Encounter with Jesus Christ Revealer of the God of Love
  • Living Faith daily, and more deeply, in Charity and Hope, in our Prayer and Community Celebration of Liturgy
  • Sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ (‘evangelisation’) to support others in finding meaning, hope and fullness of life in him.
