Jesus - The Way, the Truth and the Life
Jesus - The Way, the Truth and the Life
Are you looking to find out more on Jesus and his ministry? This is a Powerful Study on the Life of Jesus Christ. The marvellous treasures of the Catholic Faith— the Eucharist, Mary, the saints, and the Creed—are all centered on a single figure: Jesus Christ. Jesus is more than a historical or theological figure. He is our Saviour, our Redeemer, our Lord, and our God. While many of us already know a lot about him, how well can we say we really know him? Filmed on location in the Holy Land, Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life is a new and fresh look at Jesus—who he is, what he is really like, what he taught, and what he did for our salvation. This encounter with Christ will inspire and empower you to center your entire life on him as you come to know and love him in an ever-deeper and more intimate way. Starting Tuesday 12th January 7.45pm. If you would like to register for this course – please contact Joan at jkent@portsmouthdiocese.org.uk.

Note: The webpage on the Portsmouth Diocese has sadly been removed but you can still contact the Intercessor team directly. Details on our website.

Through the Called & Gifted process run by our Portsmouth Diocese, a growing number of people (currently over 60) have been able to discern that they have the charism of Intercessory Prayer. The intercessions could include prayers for our Diocese, Sacred Heart Church and all the people in it, Fr Paul or maybe something or someone close to you? Perhaps something you’re concerned about relating to yourself, a family member or friend? If you wish the intercessors to pray for you, please email the team.
