BBC Radio Berkshire recently contacted Sacred Heart through our website in order to conduct a live interview with Fr Paul around the “Being Catholic” course that is currently being run. The interview between the host, Paul Coia and Fr Paul explored not only the Being Catholic Course but the question of mixed religion parents, our growing faith community and even when and how Fr Paul became a priest.

If you missed the interview or would like to hear it again, you can find the full audio recording here. :-
