Journey in Faith - RCIA
This group is for women and men who wish to
enquire about the Catholic Church or want to become Catholics, and for
those who are already Catholics but want to deepen their faith.
"Journey in Faith" meets as advertised in the Newsletter.
Administrator: John Greenrod.
Justice and Peace
The group meets on the first Tuesday of each
month at St Peter's with members from both St Peter's and Good Shepherd
and also from other Christian Churches. Anyone can join the group.
People are encouraged to come to any meeting just to see what goes on -
with no commitment to join.
The group's programme is planned to include Third World problems, human
rights issues, national issues of social justice and questions related
to international peace. The object is to act - not just to talk - and
to offer parishioners ways in which they can share their resources with
less disadvantaged people and contribute in other practical ways to
greater justice in the world. Chair: Marie Quarman.
