Excellent food added to the enjoyment and there was plenty of free time to take a walk across the road to…

De Colores one and each…. Yes, it really works! The Cursillo Method of Prayer, Study and Action has borne fruit in Norwich Diocese. You may have noticed a sudden surge in activity on the NAC website. (If you haven’t, then you won’t be reading this, will you! There’s logic for you) This is due to…

Ultreya BBQ South Wootton our Lay Director and National President

Ultreya and Social evening, South Wootton July 2017

A good time was had by all at the Ultreya and Social Evening hosted by Linda & James Nash recently. Although billed as an Ultreya the event did not follow the pattern for an Ultreya as set out in the BACC Resource manual. Perhaps it best to draw a discreet veil over the advertised title…
