Freaky Friday...and spiritual Saturday (?)

This end of this week suddenly becomes busy! In less than 12 hours, we have on offer a party, and then a chance to spend some time in prayer as a community (to make up for the party...).

Friday (28th October) night is Hallowe'en Party night, and it's a fancy dress do, so do come looking as scary as possible for a traditional Hallowe'en, with the promise of a pumpkin competition. No, I don't know what this involves either, but sign up downstairs if this sounds like your cup of tea.

Then later that night (on Saturday morning) we are taking part in the Quarant'ore vigil at Westminster Cathedral, spending an hour in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. We will be leaving Newman House at 2 am, and our slot at the Cathedral is between 3 and 4 am. We should be back around 5 am, and I gather that there is going to be a sumptuous breakfast laid on for those who took part (no gatecrashers please...). Again, sign up downstairs.

See you around.

Last night's halloween party was great fun (I was pissed 2). Went back to my bed at 5 to 2, all tipsy, got up 10 mins later, went to the Westminster Cathedral for the vigil.... yes, I made it! And we had nice breakfast back at NH afterwards, although the people cooking nearly set the whole house on fire...... It was the most exciting night, can't believe that I can stay up all night til 7 in the morning(at some point I thought I was dying)!! haha, just woke up, time 4pm ;)
