Discover the art of sacred reading on Tuesdays 12, 19, 26 March, 2, 9, April, at 1:30pm and 7:00pm at Our Lady of the Assumption Church, Gateacre.

You will be guided in reading, reflecting, responding and resting in God’s Word.

The afternoon or evening sessions are open for everyone. It is not a course so people can come to any of the sessions. The experience will help people focus on one of the readings for the next Sunday’s Mass.
