The Oratory’s group for young adults meets in St Wilfrid's Hall. Meetings begin with hot snacks and drinks from 7.30pm. Talk at 8pm. Social after until 10pm.
Thursday 27th April: “Helping Hands – The Christian Response to Crisis Pregnancy – What You Can Do...”.
This year sees the 50th anniversary of the passing of the Abortion Act and it has been noted that since then the number of unborn children who have so tragically lost their lives is equivalent to the current population of London. Speakers will include representatives from Pro-Life groups already involved in Crisis Pregnancy Counselling, and we count on you to come brimming with ideas as to how we can impact ever more on the horrifying number of abortions taking place annually in the United Kingdom. This event is organised by Core Ethics.
The following meeting will be on 18th May.
In the winter months we help out at the various local night shelters. The season for this has now ended.
Please let us know if you are interested in helping with ReStart in the intervening months:
The ReStart Charity (http://restartlives.org/) are looking to start a two tier mentoring initiative. This is what they told us:
We are initially looking for volunteers who are interested in becoming either a mentor or a befriender. Both will have very similar training and supervision, although mentoring will be a six-month commitment and the onus on meeting the mentee would be very much up to both parties. For the "befriending" option, the commitment would look more like one or two months, with meetings with the mentee restricted to Saturdays at the Drop-in. At this stage, we are interested in getting an idea of numbers, anyone that is keen on finding out more. We will be writing to everyone that registers an interest soon. Please email directly (mentioning that you have come through the Oratory) at email@example.com
All those aged 18-35 are welcome to attend
