Saturday the 5th of November we will be holding our National Religious Vocations Personnel Conference in Pimlico. We are expecting over 90 people to attend this year, so it’s certain to be a fruitful time of collaboration and exchange of ideas.
Wondering what God is calling you to do with your life?
Samuel Groups are for single young adults (18-35), who feel they would benefit from having some direction as to what God is calling them to do with their lives. The Southern Samuel Group for 2016-17 will take place in North London, and will have its first meeting in mid-November. If you are interested in taking part in this group please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Samuel Group in the North will take place in Liverpool – please view the flyer for more details and how to apply. For more information on Samuel please click here.
Congratulations to the two newly professed brothers with the Redemptorists! On Monday 15th of August, Br Michael and Br Royston made their first vows – to be Poor, Chaste and Obedient, after returning from their Noviciate in Canada. We wish them all the very best as they continue to follow the path the Lord has prepared for those who love him.
Congratulations to Fr Thaddeus, who was ordained a Priest in the Order of Discalded Carmelites on Sunday, the 14th of August. He celebrated this special day for the Carmelites and the parish, in their church, St. Simon Stock in Kensington, London. The celebration was doubly special because it was when we celebrated the Feast of the Assumption of Mary. Many people came along to support Fr Thaddeus and the community and joined them later in the parish hall. Here Fr Thaddeus is pictured with his mother, and their Carmelite Bishop who came over from Ireland for the occasion.
