Fr Michael Docherty, the parish priest at The Sacred Heart parish in Carlisle, is organising a series of Faith on Tap meetings - that is to say, vibrant Catholic discussion, starting (and accompanied) with a pint or two...
Here's what the parish website has to say:
Commencing Thursday 7th May, we will begin a series of monthly evenings at 7.30 pm in the Parish Centre. The aim of the evenings is to enable exploration of the Catholic Faith - there will a talk for enquiring minds from gifted speakers! On Thursday 7th May, Sr. Roseann Reddy of Glasgow’s Sisters of the Gospel of Life will be with us for a talk followed by opportunities for questions.
Future speakers include Bishop John Keenan, Fr. Lawrence Lew OP, Dr. Caroline Hull, Canon Luiz Ruscillo, Rev. Dr. Andrew Pinsent and Sr Julian Eikman. A wonderful opportunity to come along in a relaxed setting and explore our wonderful Faith!
These sound like an excellent idea, so anyone lucky enough to live within striking distance of Carlisle should put them in the diary at once.
