Journey of Faith for Parishes

Bringing to You

a Short Series of Maryvale Sessions

New for 2017! Maryvale Evangelisation Advisor, Nichola Hurley, is pleased to offer a Journey of Faith for Parishes, a series of presentation and discussion sessions that she will bring to you, designed to encourage and inspire development of our Faith.

There is a range of 5 themes to choose from and Nichola can deliver these as stand-alone sessions, as self-contained sets of 3 (see suggested pathways below), or all of them as a short course. Each session includes teaching, prayerful reflections, plus coffee with discussion. Nichola will present the sessions herself and can happily adapt them to your parish setting.
