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 It is intended that the course will be re-run from September 2020.
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 email@example.com
This year the Diocese is pleased to share the Lent programme from Churches Together in Britain and Ireland . A number of churches are keeping 2020 as “the Year of the Word” so this course, with its focus on scripture, will be an ideal resource for Lent 2020. The course can be downloaded as one booklet from https://ctbi.org.uk/lent You may wish to liaise with your parish office if you need to produce several copies. We hope you will find the material helpful.
