The Sacraments of Initiation Review working party (SOIR) is offering an opportunity for conversation and reflection on this question. 10am -1pm at the RE Centre, 33 Westbourne Road, Luton LU4 8JD. It is being run for Clergy, Religious, Catechists and anyone involved in or interested in sacramental preparation. This meeting continues the ongoing reflections on Sacramental practice and preparation undertaken in the Diocese over the last 2 years and builds on our day with the team from Liverpool archdiocese last year, focussing on preparing parents for the baptism of their child. The Diocesan Team would like to give opportunities for parishes to share their experience and practice in Sacramental preparation to contribute to the ongoing reflection and discernment going on in the Diocese. Booking forms will be sent to every parish and to all on the catechists mailing list and from the NORES office. Enquirires to firstname.lastname@example.org
