At the turn of the Millennium, Saint John Paul ll implored us to ‘look to the future with commitment to a New Evangelisation; one that is new in its ardour, new in its methods and new in its expression’. Each of us is called to deepen our Catholic faith, and to go forth and share this with the world.
In our diocesan Vision Document – Shaping our Future – Advent 2018, we are called to renewal and formation.
‘Formation is a life-long process of listening to what the Holy Spirit is calling and challenging us to be and to do, and getting the appropriate information, training and guidance to enable us to fulfil that mission…. Formation is never complete so needs to be constantly refreshed, according to the needs of the Church in the world today.’
At St John Payne we seek to offer on-going formation through published and DVD courses, as well as through Bible study led by Sr. Angela Morris CRSS.
