Year Of Faith 2012 – 2013

Year Of Faith 2012 – 2013

Our Year of Faith began with an ecumenical gathering. Churches Together in Notting Hill have an annual Prayer Lunch here and this year it was an occasion to celebrate the faith we share – faith in God and in His care for us, faith in Jesus Christ our Saviour. The event began with a service in our Chapel, during which we made a profession of faith together. Then, after they had had their tea and sandwiches, we met with the group in the monastery parlour, strengthening the bonds of a friendship that goes back some years now.
During this year we will be looking afresh at the teachings of the Second Vatican Council and, together with the whole Carmelite Order, we will also be studying St Teresa’s Interior Castle, In preparation for the fifth centenary of her birth. These will certainly be two rich sources of nourishment for our faith and for our commitment to our vocation.
