Talks by the Friars - 2 . . .

Last night once again we had an almost full hall to hear the 2nd of our talks given by the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal. Brother John Bosco gave an excellent talk on the Sacrament of Reconciliation underpinned by the teaching from the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

It was very well received by those present which included parents of our First Holy Communion children and other members of the parish. I was delighted to see many of our Confirmation group present too.

I have already received a very good response and feedback from people who were able to attend.

Now, we're all looking forward to the third and final talk, on the subject of Prayer which will take place on

Tuesday 1st December at 7.45 pm for 8pm.

Yes, it was another excellent talk. The Friars seem to have a great gift for getting their message over in a very clear and easily understandable way without either 'dumbing down' or 'talking over our heads.'

I'm looking forward to the third talk next month and am just sorry that it will be the last one of the series.

Yes this was a lovely talk by Brother John Bosco on God's generous mercy found in this sacrament.

More important were the answers Brother gave to some, leading and well thought out questions asked by some of our young adults.
