St Raphael's

Tonight we had fun with Fr Vincent Flynn and a group of lads from his parish in Surbiton. St Raphael's is one of the most beautiful and historic churches in the Archdiocese but it is in need of repair (a task which Fr Vincent has in hand). My church is no great architectural gem, but is at least in good nick. It has probably the most impressive Tabernacle in the diocese, great Stations of the Cross, and a sacristy to die for! So it was amusing to wind up the Surbiton lads over which church was best. We then had the obligatory BBQ - although the rain caused us to take refuge inside. We were joined by William, a seminarian from Spain. Kurt & Stephen also came. They are both going to start at Wonersh this year so please keep them in your prayers.
After the BBQ we went across the road to watch Fishers of Men in the parish cinema (eat your hearts out Surbiton!), pausing first for a photo-shoot for the Blog. I promised the lads I'd put an email link on this post. So if you would like to know about vocations events on Southwark send me an email by clicking here.
