The young people...

...at St Patrick's, Soho Square, are having a special Vigil of Prayer on Oct 1st from 6pm to 9pm, and are asking you to join them. If you're in London, just turn up! If you are further away, unite yourself in prayer with them for a few minutes. This is important - they are praying for the future of the work there. The St Patrick's Evangelisation School (SPES) has a group of new students for the new academic year, and there is so much to be done...

One of the young people from St P's came to speak at the Association of Catholic Women meeting the other day (see Blog for last weekend) and gave us such a wonderful and vivid account of the glorious World Youth Day events in Sydney. You can get a tiny flavour of WYD here and here and here ....and if you would like to see something of the WYD spirit alive in London, then supporting SPES and St Patrick's is one way of doing it...

This is off topic for your post but I just wanted to say how much I am enjoying your "Catholic Lives" series on EWTN. I particularly liked the choir director and I watched the one with Fr. Finegan twice, just because I so enjoyed listening to him, and kept thinking how wonderful it would be to be in his parish. Thank you so much for doing the series and I am looking forward to more.
