Sycamore is an informal course about the Catholic faith and its relevance for life today. It gives you space to meet other people, share ideas, explore your beliefs, and think about questions that really matter. It has been produced by the very talented Fr Stephen Wang in London, who has a real gift for sharing the depth and richness of the Catholic tradition and its compassionate and life-giving vision. He helps us to see how these truths can be recognised in our lives and in the longings of our hearts. Each session includes a short film and opportunities for discussion.
We will be running the first five sessions on Zoom on Tuesday evenings starting on 19th January 2021 (Join at 7.30pm for 7.45pm prompt start).
To register your interest please click here, by the end of Sunday 17th January.
At the start of this new year, and in the difficult circumstances of lockdown, this would be a good opportunity to explore some of the basics of the Christian faith from a Catholic perspective.
I would like to extend a particular invitation to anyone who reads this email who is not Catholic, and would like to know more about how we see the world and God at work in it and in us. Maybe this last year has made you more curious. Maybe no one has ever invited you to learn more. Maybe it’s been on the cards for 40 years but the time has never seemed right. Whatever the reason, you will find a warm welcome and an opportunity to explore the Catholic faith in the company of others on the same journey, and sympathetic guides. You are very welcome to speak with me before registering, should you wish.
I believe that many in our parish will find Sycamore helpful for their journey in faith. I do look forward to the time when we can run the sessions over a meal together, but in the meanwhile I’d like to encourage everyone in the parish to have a think about giving it a go as some spiritual food during this lockdown.
With best wishes for this New Year of Grace
Fr Jonathan How and Fr David Osborne
