A Practical Guide for Parishes

It's the calling and duty of every baptised person to witness to their faith as they can. This eManual offers a practical guide for parishes to help all tiers of the Catholic community to do just that. These resources were written to help you invite those closest to you to re-connect with their faith and their local parish, mindful that this is not an 'us' and 'them' model of ministry, but that we are all in need of deepening our relationship with Christ.
