Parish is Anchored in the Faith

The parish of Our Lady Queen of Peace, Adur Valley reports that it continues to reap the rewards following the success of the "Anchoring you in the Faith" course during the recent Easter season. Run over six sessions with over 30 participants, the course provided a grounded opportunity to anchor our faith in the informal setting of The Towers Convent. The Maryvale Institute, Birmingham, has developed the course, with each session including a time for communal prayer, study of scripture, reflection on Christian art, and an exploration of the Eucharist.
Parishioners stated "Thank you so much for an in-depth discussion group, each week has got better and better", “I really enjoyed the course, the content and networking within the Parish family” and "When do ordinary Catholics get the opportunity to listen and discuss like we have".

Keen to continue exploring the Catholic Faith, future courses and opportunities to study the scripture are planned over the coming year.

“There is nothing more beautiful than to be visited by Christ and the Gospel. There is nothing more beautiful than to know that what is being offered is the joy of His friendship” (Pope Benedict XVI)
