This short series of presentations will explore some fundamental aspects of our knowledge about Jesus of Nazareth. It will trace how faith in Jesus developed and too shape, leading to what we profess about him in our creeds. The series will provide a basic foundation for those who want to deepen their own faith and be in a position to share it with others. It would be an ideal foundational course for those engaged in parish ministries, diocesan or parish pastoral councils.

These illustrated lectures are designed to make sense of Art. Indeed Nora Donnelly hopes to help not only to make some sense of Art but to make new sense by attending to what we see just for its own sake. In this way she hopes to show that God is immanent and embedded in all things visual and that our world is charged with the wonder of His presence.
Join with the Schola Cantorum Basilicae and the combined choirs of Knock in celebrating the joy of Christmas with a collection of carols, hymns and festive favourites at Knock Basilica. Admission free and all are welcome.
