Every Wednesday this term at 6pm, there are weekly meetings in the Catholic Chaplaincy Flat (that's up the stairs and to the right in the chaplaincy centre).
This is an opportunity to learn more about your faith, and to explore it with others, and to meet other students in an informal and relaxed setting. The basic format will be tea and toast, followed by a short presentation or talk, discussion time, and we'll finish with Night Prayer. Over the ten weeks of this term, we are going to look at the Apostles Creed. Every word of the Creed was carved out in the early centuries of the Church, sometimes amidst great acrimony. But within the Creed are to be discovered the greatest treasures of the Church, and yet so often, we say the words without ever considering what they mean. What does it mean to believe? Who is God and can it be true that God took on our flesh? What does it mean that Jesus went into Hell and rose again, and what relevance does that have to me and my struggles, my fears and addictions, and who is the Holy Spirit, and do we really need the Church? Does it not just get in the way, and isn't it anyway just a human invention?
