Landings offers a safe harbour/landing place for returning Catholics to share their faith and their future with the Church. We have had a group in the past, but not at present.
It is AN EXPERIENCE IN FAITH SHARING and THE PROGRAMME OFFERS
- A supportive community within which questions can be asked, discussed and deal with any difficulties
- Sharing with ordinary Catholics who are trying to live their faith
- A safe environment to come to terms with recent changes in the church and themselves
- A participation in the Church’s evangelization mission by openingtheir hearts to those who have been away
- Listening and sharing faith experiences
- A chance to grow & learn from the spiritual journeys of one another
- The returning Catholic is invited to join a LANDINGS group.
- Each Group can decide how best to meet in sessions to share and explore their faith.
LANDINGS IS NOT
- The “saved” welcoming the “sinners”
- People pressurising others to return
- Providing full answers
- Blind to the hurt the Church may have caused someone
- People in solidarity with the returning; who in their own lives have “returned” and continue to “return”
- Founded on the belief that we do not have to be trained theologians to share what we believe and to speakhonestly about our faith in trusting the Holy Spirit.
