Advent Carols

The Christmas Fayre

The Community of St John

On Sunday 16th December, Brother Daniel from the Community of St John ( talked to Forum Christi about the subject of Joy. He discussed the concept of virtue, and the difference between moral and spiritual virtues, as well as the fruits of the spiritual virtues, including joy. Roberto taught us the Joy song (to the tune of Jingle Bells) "J.O.Y., J.O.Y., J.O.Y. we sing, Jesus first, Yourself last, Others in between."After the talk there was time for socialising at the end of term party. Forum Christi begins again in January.

The brothers of St John had been in the parish throughout the weekend. They had spoken to our Keep the Faith groups (11-13 year olds) and had led a intense retreat on Philosophy and Christ called 'Full Flight'. More than 30 young adults took part in this event.
