More Brightlights images

The Carmelite community were fully involved in the Brightlights Festival. Fr Damian was asked to be part of the core team organinising the event. Damian has been part of Brighlights in its former home of the Spec Centre in London Colney, where Damian was chaplain the the Spec community for a couple of years. Fr Brendan presided and preached at the Sunday Mass of the Festival in the lovely setting of the Rosary Way.

Fr Joseph led a seminar, Br Paul took young pilgrims aroung the friary and was a hit with all those who went on his 'Prayer in stone' walks. Br Tiago and some of the other friars in initial formation joined  discussion on religious life in the 21st century. Fr Damian led a workshop on 'listening to your heart,' which we are told led to a few tears from those taking part (the tears were good tears, we hasten to add) Sunday evening finished with an evening of entertainment provided by the festival goers themselves. Lastly, a short, candle-lit service on the shrine.

spot the friars ... and name them!
