…the new initiative Catholic Women Praying Together. This has grown out of the splendid Catholic Women of the Year event which reached its Golden Jubilee last year. All the main Catholic women’s groups – Union of Catholic Mothers, Catholic Women’s League, Assn of Catholic Women, LOGS etc – are represented on the committee and it was agreed to have an annual Mass, the inaugural theme being prayer for our young people. With so many young people in our country losing their lives and their happiness through drugs, knife crime, suicide and addiction to social media etc, we felt that one thing we could do was to pray together. Mass was celebrated at London’s Farm Street church by Mgr Keith Newton of the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham and there was glorious singing from the choir of Coloma Girls School. Their young voices were so beautiful: many of the older ladies were moved to tears.
Praise the Lord
