On a Mission with TenTen.

Nest week, Fr Damian will be part of a team leading a Mission in a London School for boys. Newman College in Harlesden, North London, has invited a team gathered together by the TenTen theatre company to lead a week long Mission involving the whole school and taking over the entire timetable.

Each day will begin with an optional celebration of the Eucharist and then the various year groups will have an assembly, a daily keynote speaker and drama performances centred on the experiences of young people and the life of faith. Speakers include Fr Cyril Axelrod, a priest of the Redemptorist Order who is deaf and blind, Margaret and  Barry Mizzen, parents of a London teenager who was killed at the age of 16, and the former Sportsman David Fannon.

Part of each day will also involve workshops led by a variety of individuals and groups including Pax Christi, Kife, Cafod, YCW, THe Apostleship of the Sea. The week will end with a Mass in the Church of Our Lady of Willesden on Friday morning.

Please pray for the success of the Mission, and for the core team, Stephen Newbury & Sarah Winn of TenTen Theatre, Edwin Fawcett and Fr Damian.
