As you may be aware the Diocese is no longer producing Advent resources but I will be sharing programmes when they become available. We are pleased to say that the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle have recently sent us their material and the content, which I think is excellent, links with the Year of the Word: The God who Speaks which, as you may be aware, begins properly on the first Sunday of Advent.
The materials for each week can be downloaded using the link below. You may wish to liaise with your parish office if you would like multiple copies produced. I hope that you will find these materials helpful.

In support of Bishop Richard's Pastoral Plan, the Diocese have launched a CCRS course, which started in September 2019 with modules continuing until June 2020. The Catholic Certificate in Religious Studies (CCRS) has been established since 1991 and has been successfully run in the Diocese. It aims to provide an introduction to Catholic theology and an understanding of the central truths of our Faith. It will be open to teachers working in Catholic schools, Catechists, people involved in pastoral and liturgical work and other interested adults. Full details of the course can be found at http://www.brs.ccrs.org.uk/index .php
For more information and to express an interest in attending this course, or in registering for future dates, please contact Jon Harman, Adviser for Formation and Spirituality, at the St Philip Howard Centre tel 01293 651157 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
