Faith and Family Centre



"The Faith and Family Centre has made a real difference to my life. The on-going formation available through the centre has deepened my faith and enriched my sense of vocation as a husband and father. Our whole family has benefited from this journey."

Paul Rochfort, F&F Centre participant
