Last week was an interesting mix of things. On Wednesday evening we went to Youth 2000 at Corpus Christi Church, Maiden Lane. There was adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and a Eucharistic healing service led by Fr. Angelus, a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal. He held the Blessed Sacrament before each and every person with such patience and devotion, it was very moving to see. On Thursday we had our weekly community day out, this time to City Farm in Whitechapel to see the animals!
On Friday we had our fortnightly Theology of the Body talk in St. Patrick's from Matthew Nichols on 'Establishing the Ethical Sense' in Theology of the Body. There will be a Theology of the Body lecture this Friday as well on the role of the body in art - should be worth going to if you're free at 7. On Saturday the girls went to the house of Ann and Dan Hill, two big supporters of the school. An American couple, they invited us to a Thanksgiving dinner last term which was to die for! Speaking of good cooking, last night in St. Patrick's there was a big sending off for Dino the Brazilian chef. Here he is being presented an apron by Fr. Alex (who is just back from the Land Down Under). Dino, we will miss you!
