Auntie is among the speakers at....

The Vocation of Man and Woman retreat day at St Mary of the Angels, Bayswater, Saturday 17th May 10am – 4.30pm
If we don't know who we are, how can we know who we're called to become?
A contemplative and interactive day for men and women interested in asking “What in the modern world, is the vocation of Man and Woman?  Are femininity and masculinity sacramental realities or is matter just meaningless? Do our bodies ‘preach the Gospel’ or are they merely ‘raw material for our own experiment?’ Is gender something we choose for ourselves or has God always had a plan for Woman and Man that evokes His nature?
Explore, with the help of speakers, reflection groups and prayer, what is at stake if we underestimate the importance of our calling to be male and female. Discover in depth how the Church helps us fulfil our destiny.  “Purifying all things and bringing them to their finest expression”.  Blessed John Henry Newman
Or simply call Sarah de Nordwall on 07849 641 899, leaving your name and number.

The day begins with Mass at 10am in the main church. The rest of the event takes place in the Panelled Room.  Enter through the Parish House.   The Event is sponsored by Fr Richard Nesbitt and the Vocations Department of the Diocese of Westminster
