There are still places available at CPW's all-age weeks in Kintbury (4-11 August) and Malvern (16-22 August).
Kintbury - Living Eucharistically
With speakers such as Sr. Margaret Aitkins OSA, Blackfriars Oxford, and Grenfell activist Sandra Ruiz; videos by young people who live their faith in practical ways made especially for our young people; and the opportunity to visit nearby projects, CPW Kintbury offers a safe space to question, listen and discover together some of the issues around eucharistic traditions". The chair of the week is Rebekah O'Keeffe and the chaplain Peter Hunter OP.
Malvern - The Challenge of Parenting in the 21st Century
Meanwhile the Malvern team, chaired by Mary Huckfield and Hannah Beattie, have invited some fascinating speakers to speak at the Malvern CPW to help participants consider what actions our faith might lead us to in our homes, places of work and parishes. Pamela Perry is a founding member of Parishioners' Call and a member of CWO (Catholic Women's Ordination). She will be speaking about Women/Girls and the Catholic Church on a day which is being called 'The One About the Mothers'. The day will be a celebration of Mary and all women of faith. Rosie Russell is a Mental Health Practitioner who works with children, teenagers and adults in the area of mental health. The chaplain is Fr Mike Fitzsimmons.
CPW is a not-for-profit volunteer-led organisation that runs holidays that 'make a difference' - known as Catholic People's Weeks. From weekend retreats to week-long holidays, the hope is to offer events that nourish faith, ignite intellect, inspire social action, challenge understanding, invite laughter and creativity, and enrich friendships old and new. CPW has been running holidays for Catholic people for nearly 70 years.
