Thanks to all of you who came on Tuesday to our first Talk, The Father Sends His Son, in our new series on the Catechism. It was lovely to have you with us! We thought it went extremely well and hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! It is fantastic seeing so many eager and enthusiastic people thirsting for knowledge and truth. Fr. Francis spoke with great insight. With his experience of teaching here at SPES for the past five years on the Catechism along with his experience teaching Philosophy at Allen Hall to the Seminarians, it is not surprising he knows the information so well. It was definitely thought provoking and brought about many good questions during the Q & A time. Hope you will be with us this Tuesday, 23 November 2010, for the second talk in the Catechism series: The Mystery of Christ’s Life.

The First Friday of each month is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. We will mark this with an overnight prayer vigil to pray for young people, vocations and the School of Evangelisation. Jesus will be at the centre of our prayers, praise, and worship! Throughout the night there will be Adoration, songs, the Rosary, intercessory prayer, and time of silence.
If you are interested and would like to stay the whole night or just one hour please get in touch to let us know what time we can expect you. It would be great to have you with us. Your support is very much needed and appreciated.

We look forward to seeing you!
Although our series of Talks on Evangelisation have finished for the month, it definitely has not finished our enthusiasm on the wealth of knowledge that was taught. They will be talked about and discussed in many conversations in weeks to come. They gave us much to take in, reflect upon and digest. We really hope all who attended enjoyed them as much as Edna and I did. We are looking forward to what’s to come with our next series of Talks beginning this Month on 16 November on the Catechism. Please stay tuned to our blog for more details of upcoming events, opportunities for evangelising, and talks.
Father Emmanuel's talk on the practicalities on how to Evangelise was amazing! Hearing his story and experiences he has had were very empowering and impactful! It was awesome to hear him speak with much freedom and confidence giving much encouragement to have the courage to go there and proclaim the Good News of Christ love to those in our work places, friends, and family we are with everyday. It’s crucial to be attentive to others, lend a listening year, and don’t forget to meet people where they are as Christ did! When you are filled with the Holy Spirit and God’s grace, His love and joy, you want to share it! It is difficult to keep it all for yourself. Just like if you heard news of a new born nephew or have been given a long awaited gift, you would not be able to resist keeping it to yourself. That is what we are called to do as Catholics, to share with others the gift of our faith! Believe God is with you, leading you and guiding you through the power of the Holy Spirit!
