FEAST DAYS THIS WEEK: Tuesday 14th: Sts Cyril and Methodius, Patrons of Europe. Friday 17th: the Seven Holy Founders of the Servite Order. FANCY A SATURDAY WALK IN GOOD COMPANY?? There will be a group leaving the grotto area in front of the church on Saturday at 9.30 a.m., walking to King’s Hall and back, calling in to the Catholic Club for a hot drink and leaving time for anyone who wishes to attend the 11.05 Mass. Why not give it a try? The walk is wheelchair-and buggy-friendly.
LET’S TALK: After the very successful session on Atheism last month, this month we tackle (so to speak) The Bible. Is the Bible important today? Why do Protestants seem to know the Bible better than Catholics? How do we approach the Bible in terms of science, history and morality etc? How do different communities eg. Christians and Jews differ in their approach to the Bible? How do other faith communities approach their holy books? Just a few questions to exercise your minds as we prepare for the next Let’s Talk session, which will take place on Monday 20 February from 7.00 to 8.30 in the Catholic Club. CHARITY CONCERT: MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS THERAPY CENTRE, CANTERBURY (MSTC)- 7.30 p.m. 25th MARCH The Hoath Village Singers are holding a concert in aid of the MSTC at the Hoath Village Hall CT3 4LA.
