their year in community they can be working full-time in normal jobs or doing voluntary work or in studies. Meals and prayer
(morning and night) will be in common. We will try to have Mass together also. In the evenings there will be talks, prayer
and discussion groups. Weekend activities will include retreats (both giving and receiving), trips, and experience of actual
religious life. Social activities will be part of the mix, as will free time.
Types of input: We will have members of different religious orders and diocesan
priests come and give talks on the various forms of calling. The members will individually spend two or three short periods
in religious or diocesan households.
Personal development: We will encourage pastoral development through having the members run prayer and discussion groups, weekend
retreats, and social activities. Some might need to catch up on A-levels or learn about basic Christianity (e.g. Maryvale
Catechism course). Others might need help with personal issues. The main intent is that at the end of year the members will
be enabled to move in the direction they have discerned.
start: Hammersmith, London on 27th September 2009.
