    ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS

The ONM Buddy Program works by pairing someone new to the faith with someone who has an in-depth understanding of the faith. This will help to ensure that crucial foundations are set and the necessary help is provided to overcome any initial hurdles and challenges. The BP provides an opportunity to ask questions, seek guidance and to accompany one another on this journey together, taking in its beauty and wisdom. The ultimate purpose of the Buddy Program is to make your buddy the first point of call for any questions, issues or queries that may arise regardless of whether that’s in the morning or at night!
