We are a group of young Catholic adults (aged 18-35), seeking to grow in holiness by means of traditional liturgy, prayer, catechesis and spirituality and who enjoy socialising, and charitable works.
We look forward to being formally affiliated with the Juventutem International Federation.
We, the undersigned, wish to endorse and support the letter
signed by over 450 priests in the recent edition of the Catholic Herald.
As laity, we all know from our own family experiences, or
those of our friends and neighbours, the harrowing trauma of divorce and
separation, and we sympathise with all those in such situations.
It is precisely for that reason that we believe that the Church
must continue to proclaim the truth about marriage, given us by Christ in the
Gospels, with clarity and charity in a world that struggles to understand it.
For the sake of those in irregular unions, for the sake of
those abandoned and living in accordance with the teachings of the Church, and
above all for the sake of the next generation, it is essential that the Church
continues to make it quite clear that sacramental marriage is indissoluble
We pray, and expect, that our hierarchy will represent us,
and the Church’s unwavering teaching, at the Synod this autumn.
Though late, this Post brings a report of our celebration of the Feast of Saint Thomas Aquinas according to the Ancient Dominican Rite of Mass.
With more than half the congregation under 30, Mass was celebrated by Father Benjamin Earl, OP; Chaplain at St. Cuthbert’s Durham, with Father David Goodill, OP in Choir. We were especially grateful to both Fr. Earl and the servers since all three had to learn the Rite from scratch –and for Mr Peirce Yip, it was also his first time serving Mass.
