WG Newsletter - 23 November 2017
Just a quick update. Things are now speeding up on the Christmas preparation front and I thought you might appreciate a reminder of our activities between now and Christmas.
CTMH Walking Group
On Saturday 4th November 2017 just after the monthly Mass for peace and justice in the Holy Land, Andrew Sharples gave an organ recital.
He began with Jeremiah Clarke's Trumper Voluntary, followed by Rawsthorne's Preude on Londonderry Air, the Cholal introduction and toccata from Boellman's Suit Githique, Bach's prelude on 'Dearest Jesu, we are here', Mendelssohn's War March of the Priests, Vierne's Carillon de Westminster, Yon's Toccatina for flutes, concluding with Toccata in F (Symphony5) by Widor.
The retiring collection for Friends of the Holy Land raised £220.
Thank you to all that contributed and to Andrew for his time and talents.
RYM and HOPE Cath Soc Homeless Mission 21st November
We are really happy to announce that we're doing a homeless mission in Liverpool City Centre on Tuesday 21st November.
Helen (Hope) has got some donations of food and toiletries to distribute, and Natasha and Anita (RYM) have been given a couple of generous donations so have bought eight brand new sleeping bags and have got some other donations of clothing, shoes and gloves to give out.
It's a wonderful opportunity to get together as young Catholics (though of course if you're not Catholic, or young for that matter, you're very welcome!) to live out our faith. It's a great chance to just get out there and meet people where they are, show a little kindness and listen to peoples' stories.
You can meet us at Hope University (under the arch) at 6:15pm (literally around the corner from Bishop Eton), or if you're closer to town, meet us at the Cathedral at 7pm. We'll begin with a prayer then head out to meet people and give out our donations.
