David and Shirley's Story

21/08/2013 11:35 am

David and Shirley, from Liverpool, share their faith story for our project Crossing the Threshold. In this series we hear from former non-churchgoing (lapsed) Catholics who have now returned to the practice of their faith. With thanks to CaFE for producing the film.

David says:

"I used to go [to church] Good Friday, Easter Saturday, Christmas Eve, funerals, weddings… My family were having communion and I was a bit, like, 'I'm missing out here. Do I need this?'…

"We were sitting somewhere New Year's Eve and Shirley used to say 'Are you making a New Year's resolution?' And what I made was, 'I'm gonna do RCIA,' and Shirley was flabbergasted… It's an honour to be there when Father is celebrating Mass, it's brilliant."
