To my friends and readers in the UK, there will be an event at St. Patrick’s in London (Soho Square) where my friend Fr. Alexander Sherbrooke is the PP.
I receive this from the parish’s director of evangelization
In light of the conversations that have been opened up by Pope Francis at the recent Synod on the Family in Rome, it is very timely that St. Patrick’s Parish in Soho, London is hosting a Theology of the Body Symposium to further explore the Church’s teaching concerning human identity and sexuality.
The Symposium, which is part of the Choose Life, Choose Love series, will take place from 13th – 17th January 2016. It is primarily aimed at young adults aged 18-35, or adults with pastoral responsibilities.
Christopher West, a best-selling author and one of the most sought-after Catholic speakers on the Theology of the Body will launch the Symposium on Wednesday 13th January with a public lecture. During the course of the Symposium, participants will receive formation on the key teachings of the Theology of the Body from Robert McNamara, Adjunct Professor at the International Theological Institute, Austria.
Places are limited and are filling up. Interested parties would need to respond promptly to in order to secure their place. Basic accommodation is offered at St. Patrick’s Church on a first come first served basis.
•The cost is £100.00 without accommodation and £140.00 with accommodation.

And in other news…
My friend Fr. Alan Robinson, the parish priest at Corpus Christi in Maiden Lane (where the Latin Mass Society has had week TLMs for decades now) sent me a now about a monthly Mass for Benefactors for the parish. The have a great restoration project going on. Be sure to give some support to Corpus Christi. HERE Help them and you are also indirectly helping also the cause of the Latin Mass Society. And I very much like that confessions are heard for 30 minutes before each Mass.
GO TO CONFESSION!
I look forward to another trip to London. Perhaps I’ll attempt something after the 1st of the year, perhaps – if I can get something going, and again in June when I am promised a cricket match by one of you readers. Mayhaps another Mass at Maiden Lane and a blognic!
