Dropped in to...

...the offices of Aid to the Church in Need to deliver some handbills about the Towards Advent Festival (SATURDAY NOVEMBER 24th), at which ACN has a stall.  In fact, ACN was one of the founders of Towards Advent over a decade ago:  a number of different Catholic groups got together to sponsor the event, hired Westminster Cathedral Hall, and it has taken place every November since, and has become a big part of the London Catholic calendar.

ACN has its annual Conference at Westminster on October 20th, which will finish with the Blessed Sacrament Procession which starts at Westminster Cathedral at 2.15pm and goes through London, crossing Lambeth Bridge and finishing at St George's Cathedral, Southwark. Info about the Conference from ACN on the link given.  For the Blessed Sacrament Procession - just turn up!  Get the date into your diary now, and tell your parish/friends/family about it...

During the summer, a couple of friends mentioned that they were having difficulty ordering my book on Blessed John Paul, as one supplier had apparently run out: well, you can order one from ACN: here.

Earlier, I went to the 10am Mass at this local church, which always has good numbers for  daily Mass, even on a hot August weekday.  On the Feast of the Assumption (Holyday of Obl) it was packed - and when I commented on this, some one noted that the numbers for the 7am Mass had been large, too.
