Faith Development

Faith development is a responsibility  each one of us has  to grow in our  own knowledge and love of God and  each  other.

Ways to develop your Faith

    Saying Morning and Evening prayer
    Spiritual reading
    Taking time for reflection
    Group discussion
    Bible study
    Exploring the call to renew our Faith

Parish opportunities to develop your Faith

There are more opportunities to grow  in your own relationship with God in  Christ  within the parish: Here are  some of them.

THE RCIA - the Rite of Christian  Initiation of Adults is a way of exploring  our faith, even  as it is a way for those  interested in becoming Catholics to  undergo their own process  of  conversion. If you are interested in  either helping with the RCIA at St  Christophers,  or in attending, please  contact the parish office. Or, if you would like to refresh your own faith, have a look at the RCIA website, which is located HERE 

FOR PRAYER AND CONTEMPLATIVE  PRACTICE - If you want  to learn more about contemplative  living,  consider participating in the  Christian Meditation group which  meets every Saturday at  St. Peter  Chanel’s Meeting room Yarralumla for  contemplative meditation at 5.00pm.   For more information phone Rod & Susan Page on 6281 2378.
