The other day I visited Fr. Sherbrooke at St. Patrick’s on Soho Square.
Today I receive an e-mail from one of the staffers there. It is a good cause, so I want to pass it on and make it visible.
Dear Fr Z,
I’m delighted to read your entry on your recent visit to St Patrick’s, Soho Square. Several of us here are avid followers of your blog, so we’re happy that you have been able to visit us and clearly came at such a Providential time.
As you noted, it’s a busy parish! One thing which you will have missed – though perhaps it was mentioned to you when you visited – SPES, or St Patrick’s Evangelisation School http://www.stpatricksoho.org/spes/index.htm . It’s a nine-month full-time formation programme for Catholic young adults from all over the world, combining spiritual and personal formation with study and missionary outreach. The spiritual programme includes daily Mass, adoration, the Office and spiritual direction. We live in community, and share what we have received in street evangelisation, serving the homeless, and at youth events. Alongside accredited study of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, guest lecturers include Fr Tim
(HERE , HERE, HERE, and HERE).
We are currently recruiting for this year’s intake (October 2009 – June 2010)
Would it be possible for you to include some of this information and a link on your post? As I said, we are currently recruiting, and this may be of interest to some of your readers.
Remaining keen followers of your blog,
Jeanine and all at SPES
