This Lent and Easter, you’re invited to the Rosary Shrine to discover: Who Is Jesus?…
“Jesus said to them, ‘But who do you say that I am?'” (Matt 16:15)
Course format: People are welcome in a relaxed, respectful and friendly setting to participate in set of opportunities to share some food, listen to talks and explore and discuss ideas and issues that can be life changing. Tuesday evenings from 25 Feb – 26 May; from 7pm – 9pm including dinner, a short talk, and discussion groups.
Who is it for? The course is geared towards those without faith, enabling them to gain information, explore claims, and also begin a life of faith if they wish to do so. It also helps people renew or grow in existing faith, and provides material, insights and experience to help people share their faith with others. Respect for all guests, including their beliefs, values, feelings, outlooks and freedom are a core value of the organisers.
How long is the course? The course runs over 12 weekly sessions, with a day away for more extended reflection in the middle. It explores the basic claims of Christianity about Jesus, and what it means to become a Christian, in the wider context of our modern lives and the issues we face. Each session begins with hospitality and food, and is followed by a stimulating talk, then sharing and discussion in small groups, all within a welcoming and relaxed setting.
