Bible & Spiritual

This Committee has been formed under the Parish Pastoral Council in 2014 by the merger of the previous Bible and the Spiritual committees previously due to their similar aspirations.

“Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them” (John 14:23)
