Juventutem Conference at Douai Abbey 10th-12th September 2010 organised by Young Catholic Adults will be dedicated to Pope Benedict
People going to the Juventutem Conference Organised by Young Catholic Adults at Douai Abbey 10-12th September, will be encouraged to offer up their prayers for the Pope, in light of his forthcoming trip to the United Kingdom (the week after). It looks as though Pope Benedict will be in for a hard time in Britain, with threats of arrest and protest looming over the visit. The event has been full of difficulty, with pilgrims being asked to pay to see the Pope; moreover, there have been many criticisms of the way it has been organised. The British Government has had to take over much of the organisation, to save the visit from faltering badly.There are still a few places left in for people aged 18-35ish, if they would like to attend for the whole weekend.
Alternatively, there is a Sung Mass (Extraordinary Form) at 11am on Saturday 11th September in the main Abbey Church and a subsequent Marian Procession c. 12pm (again on Saturday 11th September), which are open to the general public (all ages). There will also be talks, Confession, Rosaries and Socials throughout the weekend. For more information, please see http://www.youngcatholicadults.co.uk/news.htm for more details.
