Diocesan Word of the Lord day: 12 November

Introducing the Gospel according to Matthew with Denis McBride CSsR

A diocesan Word of the Lord day will take place at Holy Rosary, Aintree on Saturday 12 November, with Father Denis McBride introducing the Gospel according to Matthew in preparation for Advent and the new liturgical year.

The event will run from 10am until 4pm and will be held at Holy Rosary parish centre (Altway, Aintree Village, Old Roan, L10 2LG) – rather than at Saint Anne's, Ormskirk, the orginal intended venue. The cost for the day will be £15 per person, including tea/coffee and lunch.

In addition to Fr McBride helping delegates to achieve a better understanding of Matthew's Gospel, there will be the following workshop opportunities:

• Children's Liturgy of the Word in the Year of Matthew (led by Ann Welsh)
• "The first shall be last and the last first": Justice and Peace and Matthew's Gospel (Steve Atherton)
• Praying with Matthew's Gospel (Sister Moira Meeghan)
• Seeing and Hearing the Gospel according to Matthew (Veronica Murphy)

Parish groups of five will be charged a reduced rate of £50. To book, please contact Jonathan Mercer on 0151 522 1040 or email J.mercer@rcaol.co.uk.
