Pentecost, Sunday 23 May

This week flew by with most of it spent learning and writing about the Ten Commandments. It is sad to think that this year is quickly winding down and we are coming to the end of our journey. This makes us very sad, but excited at the same time. Many of us are still quite undecided as to what the future holds, but we trust that in God's time all will be revealed to us.
We finished the week off with a BBQ in our back garden which was enjoyable. We relaxed and soaked up the sun then attended a Vigil Mass in Balham to celebrate Pentecost, which is the coming of the Holy Spirit to the Apostles. The night was filled with prayer, music, testimonies and Adoration. It was great to see so many young people gathered together giving witness to their faith.

Next week we are looking forward to preparing and publicising for Spirit in the City. On Tuesday we will be going to the home of Dan and Anne Hill for a retreat where they will be speaking to us about marriage and love. It will also be a wonderful opportunity to get to know such great friends of the School. There is also a good-bye party for Anna Stefaniak, a former SPES student. We will be saying farewell and wishing her all the best for the future back home in Poland. We hope you are filled with the Holy Spirit this day and always.

We would like to leave you with a prayer: Father, pour out your Spirit upon your people, and grant us a new vision of your glory, a new experience of your power, a new faithfulness to your service, that your love may grow among us and your Kingdom come. God the Holy Spirit, Comforter and Sanctifier, melt our hearts that we may accept your love. Renew our minds that we may know your truth. Strengthen our wills that we may serve you faithfully. Amen
