The Pivotal Players DVD Series
Discover the figures who shaped the Church
and changed the world: Vol 1
(Word on Fire Ministries: Bishop Robert Baron)
4th May GK Chesterton
Bishop Robert Barron’s CATHOLICISM series, an epic ten part documentary which we showed in the parish, took people around the world and deep into the Catholic Faith. The series aired on PBS and has been seen by millions.
But there is still more of the story to tell.
Bishop Barron is on a new journey to unlock the truth behind the Catholic Church’s most influential people. CATHOLICISM: The Pivotal Players is a multi-part film series that illumines a handful of saints, artists, mystics, and scholars who not only shaped the life of the Church but changed the course of civilization.

Marriage Preparation Facilitators’ Training
Sunday 11th June 2017 from 10am till 4pm at Gillis Centre
Would you like to support couples as they prepare for married life? Are you friendly and able to put others at their ease, and good at getting other people to talk about themselves? There are a few places still available for either individuals or married couples on the Prepare/Enrich facilitators training.
As part of their marriage preparation, engaged couples in the Archdiocese take part in Prepare/Enrich, a well-researched and recommended relationship programme. Prepare/Enrich uses an on line questionnaire to enable the couple to look closely at their relationship, especially how they communicate, make decisions and manage conflict. The couple then meet with a trained facilitator who helps them get the most from the experience. The next facilitator’s training takes place on Sunday 11th June 2017 from 10am till 4pm at Gillis Centre 100 Strathearn Road, Edinburgh. For further details by email please contact Sally McElroy firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 07979142905
