RYM Young Adult Group - Redemption (+ games night)
Inspired by the Redemptorist motto "copiosa apud eum redemptio" (with Him there is plentiful redemption), we've decided to have a session on redemption and confession. Young adults (18-40 or thereabouts!) are welcome to come to a lively and interesting talk and discussion on the subject.
As Catholics, we know that Confessions (or reconciliation, penance, etc) is an important sacrament, but we've often got questions about it. Why do we have to go to confession? What is so special about it? What even counts as a sin?!
We'll have a special guest priest to answer all your questions, plus some discussion and helpful hints if it's been a while since your last confession!
Afterwards, of course, we'll have some social time in the hall playing BOARDGAMES, quizzes and eating snacks! According to the recent poll we did, it seems like lots of people are interested in this kind of social, and we love games ourselves too!
Eucharistic Adoration at Bishop Eton from 6pm to 7.30pm
Novena to Our Mother of Perpetual Help 7.30pm at Bishop Eton
