Just like a single step starts the longest journey, a conversation can grow into something life changing.
My name is Sr Shirley. That's me in the picture below!
Through this Come & See page I extend a warm welcome to every person in the diocese who would like to explore or reexplore some aspect of the Catholic faith via email.
I particularly welcome contact with people who feel they know very little about the Catholic faith and who would like to gently explore it at a pace their lifestyle can manage.
I also welcome contact with people who now find themselves reexploring the spiritual aspect of their lives, especially people who have been away from the Church for a time.
I appreciate that some people will have important questions etc. that I cannot answer. In such circumstances I will endeavour to provide you with contact details for people who may be able to assist you.
You are also very welcome to invite me to pray for some person, need or care you have at this time. Don't feel you have to tell me what it is. I can name it as your special intention.
Looking forward to hearing from you .... and perhaps together we will discover new ways of responding to Jesus' invitation to each of us to 'Come and See' (John 1:38-39).

Looking forward to hearing from you!
