The Northwest Wayne Vicariate Pastoral Council (NWWVPC) seeks to enhance communications and facilitate resources throughout the Catholic parishes and institutions within Northwest Wayne County. Guided by the Holy Spirit, we will work together by embracing our heritage, while boldly striking out into a new reality, all to fulfill the mission of Jesus Christ.
Beacon 155 Ministry: Guiding Catholics Home
If you, or someone you know, is a confirmed Catholic, but are no longer practicing the faith in “full communion”, please consider what we have to offer. Ministry Beacon 155 is designed to give you a sense of where you are in your faith journey – it’s a navigation beacon of sorts.
Regardless of the reason you have been away, we invite you to six sessions where you can comfortably take another look the Catholic Church and discover how it can make a difference in your life.
Ministry Beacon 155 is conducted in a non-threatening and open environment; it's staffed by Catholics who had left the Church themselves for a time and can relate to those who are searching for answers.
Our next group of sessions is starting soon, and consists of six sessions held on Wednesday evenings, see below for details.
