Everyone is poor enough to receive and rich enough to give.
ANAWIM (pronounced ann-a-weem)
- a Hebrew word from the Old Testament
- describes the “poor in spirit” who remained faithful to God in times of difficulty as well as in good times
- also known as the “faithful remnant”, of whom Mary was the first perfect Anawim
ANAWIM is a name we have given ourselves as 10-12 Catholics came together in 2014, the Year of the New Evangelisation.
Our Vision: In the midst of a world that seems to suggest more and more that God is not relevant and/or that we can do without Him, we want to experience and find relevance in our Faith today.
- To experience what we believe; not enough to only know
- To recognise and cherish the beauty of our Baptismal calling, as a sharing in the life of the Risen Lord
- To be aware of our connectedness in Christ and to allow the Lord to draw us into a Communion of Communities
Anawim’s sessions will be appreciated by Catholics who …
- are looking for an avenue to discover the “WOW” of God
- want to find greater meaning in their faith and life
- are trying to discover who we are, how the Lord reaches out to us and what He desires for those who love Him
- want to know how to find the “Message” in the Bible
- are unable to reconcile with Bible language and so find it difficult to relate with God
- desire to know the Lord not only with the mind but also with the heart, hence making the longest journey in their lives
- become so filled with the “Joy of the Gospel” that it overflows into what we do and say
- are looking for companions on our faith journey
- are looking for meaning in the Catholic way of life
How often do we meet? We try to meet once a month, on a Tuesday.
- Time: 8pm-10pm
- Venue: St Andrew Room
