New Programme: Learn From Me

Two programmes are about to be launched offering structured distance learning about the faith. The programmes include study days with tutors from Maryvale Institute at Vaughan House, as well as the pastoral support of the Agency for Evangelisation team. One programme is designed for those involved in parish and liturgical ministries. The other is for parish catechists and for those considering this ministry. You can find more details here:

https://rcdow.org.uk/faith/learn-from-me---catechesis-and-mission---formation-programme/

There are associated fees, but if you are already involved in parish ministry do have a word with Fr Terry about this.
