Capacitar Wellbeing
Sep 13 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Wellbeing practices remind us that God is present to us, in every cell of our being. They enable prayer and our spiritual relationship with God by reminding us of the wholeness (and holiness) of our being, relaxing the body, and bringing us to a centred and meditative place which is prayerful in itself, or can enable us to pray more easily or readily.

This extended morning session (one of a series) continues to introduce Capacitar (meaning “empowerment”) practices and energy work, and newcomers and previous participants are very welcome.

What to expect: A gentle, flowing morning, some quiet time, some more energetic movement, time to reflect and share/ask questions. A chance to know others in a different context. All ages and abilities are welcome.

You can  download a leaflet here to read or pass on.

(No need for packed lunch). Tea/coffee provided.

Please contact Anne Harrison directly using the booking form below as places are on a first-come-first-served basis.

The Future of food in Zambia: A Climate Change warning @ St Wilfrid's Parish Centre
Sep 30 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Jesuit Missions is delighted to welcome Fr Leonard Chiti SJ to the UK in September. Fr Leonard is the Provincial Superior of the Zambia-Malawi Province and former Coordinator of the Global Ignatian Advocacy Network and Director of the Jesuit Centre for Theological Reflection in Lusaka, Zambia.

Fr Leonard will speak at St Wilfrid’s Parish Centre during his visit about the effects of climate change on food production in Zambia. He will look at ways in which Zambia can develop their farming methods in order to be more sustainable and adapt to the changing climate.

Developing countries such as Zambia often rely on local agriculture for both employment and food supply meaning that changes in climate can have a huge effect on the economic status of the country. In recent years we have seen an increase in climate related disasters such as Cyclone Idai which affected Southern Africa earlier this year. Read more on the Jesuit Missions website.

Preston Men’s Group @ Xaverian Mission Spirituality Centre
Nov 2 @ 8:30 am – 10:30 am

The group is very informal and generally meets on the first Saturday of the month from 8.30 ready for a start at 09:00 after a drink and some toast etc.  We normally aim to finish about 10.30

After the August holiday break we will resume in September when for the next four months we will meet on the 1st Saturday of each month.

The topics for the four sessions September onwards are yet to be decided.

You do not need to book for these sessions.  Just come along and take part.

The meeting (which is very informal) comprises two main sections – a reflection and sharing on a piece of scripture from the Gospels (we use the Common Lectionary and the reading for the upcoming Sunday) followed by an input and discussion/sharing on a topic relevant to Men’s spirituality. We then finish with some prayers of thanksgiving and petition.

Capacitar Wellbeing
Nov 8 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Wellbeing practices remind us that God is present to us, in every cell of our being. They enable prayer and our spiritual relationship with God by reminding us of the wholeness (and holiness) of our being, relaxing the body, and bringing us to a centred and meditative place which is prayerful in itself, or can enable us to pray more easily or readily.

This extended morning session (one of a series) continues to introduce Capacitar (meaning “empowerment”) practices and energy work, and newcomers and previous participants are very welcome.

What to expect: A gentle, flowing morning, some quiet time, some more energetic movement, time to reflect and share/ask questions. A chance to know others in a different context. All ages and abilities are welcome.

You can  download a leaflet here to read or pass on.

(No need for packed lunch). Tea/coffee provided.

Please contact Anne Harrison directly using the booking form below as places are on a first-come-first-served basis.
