How do we reach people who no longer find Mass and the usual church services satisfying their spiritual hunger and thirst?
There are significant moments in our lives which call out for some contact or connection with the Divine. Where is God ‘in the bits and pieces’ of everyday life? What can be done in our parishes to make a link between the experience of our ordinary everyday lives and the Divine?
This book is an attempt to make such a connection. It gathers together important moments in the life cycle of individuals and families and creates a celebration around those moments.
It is both an invitation to try something different and a challenge not to give up on what can be done in every parish. It also has the advantage of showing what lay ministers can achieve in a parish setting. It calls for an imaginative response to a new situation.
