Dear friends,


As we prepare to celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit, new opportunities arise to refresh our faith, renew our hope, rekindle our love and deepen our relationship with the Lord. So here are a couple of fantastic initiatives I want to share with you: The Life in the Spirit Seminar starting on the 27th May for 7 weeks and Encountering Christ, a new course starting on the 15th June, for 5 weeks. 
Both courses are free, online, and open to everyone. This is a unique opportunity to rediscover the heart of our Catholic faith as our churches are opening again.

Life in the Spirit Seminar

Starting  on the 27th May, and every Thursday for 7 weeks at 7.15pm, on Zoom. Each session is 1½ hrs. 

The Seminars are designed to proclaim the basic message of Christianity so that those who hear it can make a renewed commitment to the Lord, allowing them to experience a fuller life in the Holy Spirit. 

Seminar participants are invited to open their lives to the transforming power of the Holy Spirit, a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ, and a growing dedication to our loving Father God.

Encountering Christ

Starting on the 15th June, every Tuesday Evenings 7:00 – 9:00pm on Zoom, until the 13th July. 
The Academy of the Annunciation invites you to join us as we consider together the many ways Jesus is calling us to encounter Him.  It is the perfect occasion to connect with other Catholics – perhaps over a glass of wine in the evening! 

Come and join us!  We look forward to seeing you and hearing from you in our virtual meeting room.
The 5 evening sessions are: 
1 – Christ the Unique Mediator & Cornerstone of Our Faith 
2 – Encountering Christ in the Holy Eucharist 
3 – Christ and Catholic Moral Teaching
4 – Encountering Christ in Prayer and Discipleship
5 – Contemplating Christ in the Annunciation Through the Lens of Sacred Scripture
The course is free, but donations are welcome!

Coming up next (for your diary) 

Breathe in me O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy. Act in me O Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy. Draw my heart O Holy Spirit, that I love but what is holy. Strengthen me O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy.

Wishing you every blessing in this season of grace, as we prepare for the coming of the Holy Spirit!
