Are you interested in passing on the faith?  No experience or qualifications required!

If so the parish’s Catechesis Forum on Saturday 30 March is approaching rapidly and the closing date for registration is this Thursday 21 March.  You are warmly invited to attend.
We have speakers coming from outside Luxembourg  and it is an opportunity to look at how we offer catechesis as a community and the directions in which we wish to move in the future.  Please try to attend if you possibly can.
Registering is important as the  Centre Saint Jean XXIII needs to know numbers.  Lunch will be provided and there is no charge. More information is available by clicking here or you can register by clicking on this link.

Marriage preparation days March 2019

Our marriage preparation team is running two courses in April.   There are places available on Saturday 6 April and there will be another course on Saturday 13 April.  To obtain a registration form please contact the parish office by clicking here

This course is for couples preparing for marriage: it’s not about preparing you for the ceremony itself, but for the rest of your married life together. These days have been both popular and highly rated; input is given by trained Marriage Preparation presenters, and as couples you have an opportunity also to share your own experience of life together.

The course is for Catholic and non-Catholic partners.

Exceptionally (due to scheduling issues, for example) you can take the course after your church wedding. To cover costs, we ask €100 from each couple; if this is beyond your means, no problem — again, just get in touch. Refreshments and lunch are provided.

IOP Charity Auction CANCELLED

IOP logo

We are very sorry to announce that the charity auction scheduled for next Saturday (2/3/2019) is cancelled.

Unfortunately, we did not receive enough reservations to make it viable. As you can imagine a certain number of people is required to make the auction possible and despite our best attempts we fell short of this number.

We are very sorry that the notice is short but as you can imagine we were hoping for new reservations and the decision to cancel was a difficult one. We will take some time now to reflect on whether we try again later in the year to organise a new charity auction (we still have many great lots) or find a different method to raise funds for the truly excellent cause that is IOP. Perhaps you have some ideas? If so we would be delighted to hear from you.

Please accept our apologies for this inconvenience.

Yours sincerely,

Sam and the IOP/Sunflower team.
