THE HOLY FATHER'S PRAYER INTENTIONS FOR 2015
Each month, Pope Francis announces his special prayer intentions--particular things that he wishes all Catholics to pray for that month.
Pope Francis offers two intentions every month, one Universal, and one For Evangelization.
Universal: Service to the needy
That volunteers may give themselves generously to the service of the needy.
For Evangelization: Learn to be good neighbors
That setting aside our very selves we may learn to be neighbours to those who find themselves on the margins of human life and society.

ALPHA COURSE - INTRODUCTION TO CHRISTIANITY
"Who Is Jesus?"
* You may have heard and know who Jesus is. But how do we explain and establish that Jesus
did really exist?
* How do we know that what was written down in the New Testament has not changed over the years?
* Was Jesus more than a man, a great human, a religious teacher?
* What evidence is there to support what he said?
* What evidence is there for the resurrection of Jesus?
Presented by Nicky Gumbel, listen to this enlightening talk at 12noon in
the Social Room, this Sunday, August 30th and openly explore any questions
you have on Jesus and the Christian faith. Lunch will be served.
