The Sign of Peace at Mass
In the light of many parishioners asking about the correct way of giving the Sign of Peace post-Covid, here is the most recent document from Rome that explains what the Sign of Peace at Mass means for us as Catholics
NFP South-West is looking to train new teachers. Are you willing to learn?
We are volunteers who teach married Catholics and engaged couples either to conceive or to postpone conception. The method we teach is scientifically proven and fully compatible with Church teaching on marriage and family life.
Training is online, after which there are two training days a year in Exeter and one in London.
It's a truly powerful and vital way of supporting marriage in these challenging times.
