Our journey around the world and deep into faith begins this coming week!

Episode 1 ‘Amazed & Afraid: The Revelation of God become Man’

Journey with Fr. Robert Barron as he visits the mysterious sites & sacred places of the land of Israel.  From the lush region of ancient Caesarea Phillipi, to the shores of the Sea of Galilee, to the holy city of Jerusalem and finally to the eternal city of Rome, Fr. Barron will use this pilgrimage to illuminate & explain the Catholic’s faith conviction that Jesus of Nazareth is the promised Messiah and the revelation of God become man.

The episode will be followed by a short discussion of the episode and its content.

Special previews in the Parish Centre after all Masses today!

Join us from Wednesday 5 February at 8pm in

Holy Family Primary School Hall
