Christian Literary Club Meeting
Please join us for the Christian Literary Club on Saturday, October 13, 2023, at 20.00 (8pm). We are a group that meets to read and explore the diverse facets of our faith as found in literature. New participants are always welcome—thus a heartfelt invitation to all who are interested in discovering great, faith-based texts. For info on the location, contact Sharon (see below).
When faced with the question why do you regard religion as important rather than discarding it as some fancy of past ages, every Christian ought to be capable of a convincing answer.
That is the background of the present readings of CLC. The Saint John Henry Cardinal Newman has interesting things to say about being religious. He offers helpful guidance.
English-speaking Mission Pilgrimage to Kloster Neuzelle
The ESM will be making a pilgrimmage to Kloster Neuzelle, south of Frankfurt/Oder. Originally established as a Cistercian monastery 750 years ago, the monastery was dissolved in the early 1800s by King Frederick William III of Prussia, and the monastic complex was secularized over the following 200 years. However, a Cistercian monastery was re-established there in 2018. The monastery church of the original monastery is still used by the monks for Mass and the Liturgy of the Hours. During our visit, we will see the church, cloister and other buildings, with an opportunity to pray Vespers in the church.
We will take the train from Berlin Hauptbahnhof at 10:45 h and return by train around 21:45 h.
To register, please contact Christof Morrissey (see contact at the bottom of this post).
