Catholic women...

...gathered in London for the 43rd annual Catholic Women of the Year Lunch. Guest speaker was Fr Alexander Sherbrook,giving a challenging and inspiring message focusing on the New Evangelisation and describing - rather grippingly - the candelit drama of Nightfever in St Patrick's, Soho.

A speaker from Let the Children Live stirred us with a description of the homes established for street-children in Colombia. This is a charity well worth supporting.

Lots of useful meetings and networking at what is always a packed and talkative gathering. Afterwards, some of us went for some coffee and further chat,  For a couple of us, the route home took us past the site of Tyburn tree, so we stopped there to pray. We said the Rosary, remembering especially the Synod in Rome, and praying for the H. Father, and for the unity of the Church.

News  etc from the Synod here.
