Fourth Sunday of Easter Year A 15th May 2011
Some of our post-Confirmation teenagers will be using their talents to entertain a week on Saturday (28th, 7:30 pm). They will be offering their gifts in gratitude for your gift of money and prayer enabling them to go to meet the Pope in Madrid at World Youth Day this August – and some other Catholic youth events. It is not easy to be a practising Catholic teenager today and your support is very valuable.

So three pounds will enable you to see:

Marc Norris a great Catholic (clean) comedian, proving that to be funny you don’t have to break traditional taboos, or encourage greeds.
Lifehouse Drama: A mime and dance act depicting the battle for the soul between Jesus Christ and various temptations
Rap Dance by Anton, Gerald and Andrew – three of our very own young people who have been exhilarating audiences with their power, speed and grace all over the youth Catholic scene in London
Traditional Sri Lankan dance by young dancers who are in demand for big occasions for the London Sri Lankan community
and instrumental and song pieces by others of our youngsters

Refreshments will also be available. All at the King’s Hall, 150 yards along the Harlesden Road from the Church, starting at 7:30 pm, Saturday 28th May.

Our young people who are going on World Youth Day have been linking up with some from Ealing Abbey parish once a month for catechetical, prayerful and social preparation. They will be joining with thousands of young people from all over the world who have links with the French-founded Emmanuelle Community. They will meet in Paray de Monial, south East France on August 12th, travelling via Lourdes to be in Madrid for 17th August for more catechesis just before Pope Benedict arrives in Madrid. On the night of 20th August an expected two million young Catholics will gather at a Madrid aerodrome to keep vigil with the Pope, sleep under the stars and celebrate the Mass of World Youth Day on the Sunday morning.
