Thursday May 17th
A really successful Summer Drinks Party yesterday at the home of a kind friend in Chelsea - to raise funds for the Association of Catholic Women's education work (of which more later) and Nicole Parker's excellent London Fertility Care Centre. Wine, nice sausages rolls and savoury things to eat (we had to rush out and get more, as so many people came), lots and LOTS of lively talk, a packed room of young people simply enjoying each other's company. There are a number of Catholic groups in London that meet to pray, hear talks on the Faith, and also help with various projects, and they all seem to link with one another by e-mail and social contact, so the result when you run some Catholic event is that LARGE numbers turn up and the buzz is just splendid. It was fun opening the door to one group of newcomers after another - "Emma sent me an email" "I heard about this through the Adoration group...."
