Alive in Faith is a significant endeavour. Helping parishioners to fully understand what it is about is therefore one of the initial key priorities. Through one-to-one discussions, people are able to learn in detail about the level of support needed and the importance of the campaign, they can also ask questions and discuss pastoral matters in a personal and private way.
Clergy and volunteers across the Diocese are making every effort to share Alive in Faith personally with as many people as possible in their parishes. This week, the number of individual meetings surpassed 1,500 ' an incredible milestone! As the next group of parishes get underway this number will grow even further. Roisin O'Shea, a volunteer in Wisbech, spoke about the benefits of these meetings:
"When I first met with Fr. James about the campaign, I really appreciated learning about this initiative first-hand from him personally. Later on, when he asked me to help share the vision with others in our parish, I gladly accepted. We were relatively new in the area and I saw this as a great opportunity to get to know others and the parish better."
