The Third Annual CMA Youth Conference
Catholics in Healthcare: Building a Culture of Life
Saturday 29th September
St Aloysius’ Catholic Church, Euston, London
1:30pm – 5:30pm
The Catholic Medical Association invites all young (18-35yrs) Catholics in healthcare (doctors, nurses, medical students, nursing students, pharmacists etc) to the Third Annual CMA Youth Conference. Speakers and a panel will explore the meaning of the culture of life in relation to healthcare and how to live by that culture in our professional and personal lives.
There will be a small fayre to showcase the work of lay and religious organisations related to healthcare and tea and coffee will be provided during the break.
Entry is by donation (suggested donation: £5, payable at the door). Please be generous in order to enable the continued work of the Catholic Medical Association’s Committee for the New Evangelisation (CMANE). The CMANE supports young Catholics in healthcare.

The flyer above is a save the date notice for a young people’s event being organised on 2nd – 4th November 2018 by the Vocation’s Forum of the Conference for Religious in Scotland.
The forum has recently been re-established and this event is part of a longer term strategy to make religious life more visible and relevant here in Scotland.
A full programme for the event will be available in early August but we wanted to make you aware of the event as early as possible in the hope that you will be able to help us in one of three ways.
Firstly, if you have anyone who you think may be interested in the event you can register your interest and reserve a place(s).
Secondly, you can sponsor a place(s) for a young person(s) to attend. Cost £50 and cheques should be made payable to the Conference of Religious Scotland and sent to me at the address below.
Thirdly, you can help publicise the event through your contacts, parish groups and social media.
And, of course we would be most grateful if you could keep this project in your prayers. If you need further information, please feel free to get in touch.

BBC4 has done a TV series about various Benedictine monasteries in the UK. Each episode has scenes filmed at the monastery- from the monks at prayer and work. Calm, quiet, uplifting and an interesting insight to the lives of monks, which an outsider would not normally see. The monasteries covered are: Downside Abbey, Pluscarden Abbey and Belmont Abbey.

A TV series has recently been on channel 5 about five young women who live a party lifestyle visiting the convent of the Sacred Heart in Swaffham, Norfolk. Beautiful to see the positive effect that this spiritual experience has on the young women. Worth a ‘watch again’ if you’ve not seen it.

Congratulations to Fr Bernard Mourinan, Fr John-Paul McShane, Fr Jim Dean and Fr Jonathon Whitworth, who have all been ordained to the priesthood in the last week, in the Dioceses of Motherwell, Glasgow and Paisley. There has been much celebration and joy. Around the feast of St Peter and St Paul (29th June) is a time of year when it is popular for priests to be ordained. Many priests are also celebrating the anniversary of their ordination around this time. We congratulate them all, keep them in our prayers and thank them for their service to the Church.

We watched a documentary about the life of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal in Bradford. A fun and inspiring watch, gives a good insight into what religious life is like.
Still available on BBC i-player if you missed it!
