Neocatechumenal Way

The Neocatechumenal Way is a charism within the Catholic Church dedicated to Christian formation. It was formed in Madrid in 1964 by Kiko Argüello and Carmen Hernández. Taking its inspiration from the catechumenate of the early Catholic Church, by which converts from paganism were prepared for baptism, it provides post-baptismal formation to adults who are already members of the Church or to those far from the Church who have been attracted by the testimony of Christian life of love and unity in the communities.

The Neocatechumenal Way started at St Fiacre’s at the invitation of Fr Ted Harrop, OFM Cap, nearly 40 years ago.  The parish of St Fiacre’s has provided a place where, through the work of the Holy Spirit, the brothers and sisters of the Way have been able to grow in Faith, Hope, and Love.  For this we are grateful.  Out of this gratitude, the brothers and sisters of the Neocatechumenal communities at St Fiacre’s have been actively participating in the evangelising mission of the parish for many years.
