World Youth Alliance

This weekend we hosted a meeting of the World Youth Alliance (WYA). The WYA is an international alliance of young people committed to building the culture of life. Emelia Klepacka and Phil Hunt came over from Brussels to train a number of young English, French and Belgian professionals, including some parliamentary interns.
From a vocational point of view the weekend was very fruitful. On Saturday evening we showed 'Fishers of Men' the new vocations video from the United States. It provoked a lot of thoughtful discussion. One lad returns to the continent intending to contact his Bishop. 'I will call him if you think I should', he said. If only all vocational work were that easy!
Of the English lads present one hopes to join us for the forthcoming get-together at Woldingham school. It will be good for him to meet the Archbishop. Another will be in London next year, and I hope that he will join some of our vocational activities.
