Quo Vadis Group
A few weeks ago I posted about the new Quo Vadis Group being established on my behalf by Fr Dominic Allain. The initiative is a direct result of our experience at World Youth Day in Sydney this year. By the end of the trip so many of our young people were seriously considering the possibility of a vocation to priesthood or religious life that we wanted to provide some forum where they would have space to continue their discernment.
The Quo Vadis Group is for those still at school or starting university - male and female - and it offers a chance to come together for prayer, friendship and formation. Joining the group does not mean that the boys will become priests and the girls nuns. Far from it! The idea is simply to create an environment which encourages young people to think about their future in terms of God's call.
Our first meeting will take place in Fr Dominic's new parish on Friday 3rd October. We begin with Holy Mass at 6.30pm. If you are between 16 & 20 years old and would like to join us please send me an email (click here) and I will send you more details. For catering purposes we need to know numbers in advance.
Meanwhile, we ask the rest of you please to keep this new venture in your prayers. Thanks.
