Hello one and all! Welcome to 'Hope in the Heart of Soho', a blog which we at St. Patrick's Evangelisation School have begun in order to keep a journal of things that we are involved in, particularly in Soho Square where we are based. We are a group of 8 students who have come from different parts of the world to spend 9 months from October to June deepening our faith through study of the Catechism, prayer, community life, involvement in the parish and outreach to the wider community in London. The school was started five years ago by our parish priest, Fr. Alexander Sherbrooke, in response to JPII's call for bishops and priests to encourage the 'New Evangelisation' among young people. The school has brought many fruits so far, not least our three coordinators this year, Anna, Basha and Jeanine, who were all students last year. Some of the previous students are now seminarians or have entered religious communities, some are married, some have jobs in the world, many still keep in contact with St. Patrick's parish. This blog is partly so that they can keep in touch with the school, but it is also for those who want to know more about the witness to the Gospel that is taking place in the heart of secular culture. Please spread this blog, and keep Soho (and us) in your prayers!
