This course will be of special interest to those in the parishes who are engaged in the ministries of R.C.I.A. and Catechetics. Others who are not specially engaged in these ministries will find that the information given will be very beneficial to their spirituality and in reinforcing their Catholic moral and spiritual values. Added to this is the afternoon workshops which concentrate on a variety of interests and talents and will give an impetus to your spiritual development.
As accommodation is limited and acceptance is on a first come first served basis you are advised to apply as soon as possible. Application forms have already been sent to the parishes and parish priests are urged to take advantage of this opportunity for their parish leaders to upgrade their information on the sacraments.
