This past week was a great week! We had several amazing lectures learning about the Holy Spirit, The Letters of St. Paul and the Synoptic Gospels. Saturday we had a fun filled evening celebrating our third culture night, Chinese New Year, with stories, laughter, Chinese music, and amazing authentic Chinese cuisine cooked by Shi Rui. This week we will be having many exciting talks on the Theology of the Body, TOB in Genesis, and having a look at the Encyclical Letter Humanae Vitae. Today we celebrated the Feast Day of St. Claude De La Colombiere who is one of the Patron Saint's of our school. It was through his life we now have devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Wednesday we have the privelage of meeting Archbisop Vincent Nichols who will be coming to give a special blessing for the SOS prayer line which reached 50,000 callers a few weeks ago. What a blessing it is! Thanks be to God!!! Friday we look forward to more street evangelisation and Saturday we will be in Balham working with the Confirmation students. It will be a busy week, but very much looking forward to all that is planned! Have a great week. God bless!!!!

As nervous as we may be what a true blessing it is to be able to share with others Good News of the hope within us. We will be going out into the streets of Soho on Friday evening, so please remember to keep us in prayer. God bless!!!

Farewell Sister

Tomorrow we will be saying farewell to Sister Dympna who we will miss dearly. She is off to Scotland, well aren't they blessed to be getting such a lovely lady! Her presence around St. Patrick's will not be forgotten. She always had such a warming smile, ready to give great big hugs, but most importantly was filled with such wisdom that she shared with us often. She is going where God is calling her to be at this time. You will be in our thoughts and prayers Sister. It's not goodbye it's see you later!!! We wish you all the best with lots of love. May God bless you always and we will see you soon!
We have another ambitious one! Christina could not contain herself and couldn't help but get her feet wet and yes the water was freezing! She wasn't going to let that stop her. ;)

North Sea

It was Shi Rui's first time ever being at the beach! She was in such amazement that she could not hold back her excitement and happiness with shouting and screaming for joy!!! :)

Holy Holiday

After two weeks of working hard on our essays they rewarded us with a bit of a getaway up North in Norfolk for a holy holiday. We went to Walsingham and visited the National Shrine to Our Lady where we celebrated Mass and had Adoration. It was time well spent relaxing and re-energizing. It was nice to be able to share, socialize, and bond together as a community. For some of us it was our first time there. We had the privilege of going to the seaside and walked a "Holy Mile" by the beach enjoying the company of one another. It was a beautiful day that we enjoyed very much!!! Being outside in the fresh air of the country side was lovely too.
