Meet Charlie - 29

Hello Dear Friends of SPES, My name is Charlie. I am 29 years old and I was born and live in London. I was recently working as a project engineer in the wind energy sector until I joined the school. I have felt for over a year, a strong desire to receive a deep Catholic formation. I am delighted to be at St. Patrick's because all the ingredients for a life of devotion and commitment are here. There is a great strength of integrity & diversity. Bring it on!

Meet Peter - 22

As a farm-boy from Cornwall, I have taken my time to adjust to the bright lights of London, but I think I have finally settled into life at SPES. Community life is really something to be prized.

Meet Desirae - 24

Hello! My name is Desirae. I am from Broomfield, Colorado, USA. I am very excited to be here in London, learning more about my faith and serving the local community in a variety of ways!! We have been so busy these past four weeks. Getting to know one another in community life, meeting new people at the Church and many wonderful priests, religious, and lay persons from around London! Last week the Sisters of the Community of St. Jean came from France to visit us. We also spent this past Saturday with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal praying the Rosary outside of an abortion clinic - It was a very moving experience. Tomorrow you will meet Peter! God Bless!
