                         Lent 2020 Study

Preparing followers of Jesus to face persecution is an aspect of discipleship.   In a time when many countries actively suppress the expression of Christian faith, mission, in the context of opposition, is a pressing issue for us to consider.

The recent film, “Silence” directed by Martin Scorsese, dramatizes the severe persecution of Catholic Christians in 

17th century Japan.  The film prompts deep questions about Faith, Mission and Suffering.

For further details telephone Fr Roland on the number below.
