October 2021

We have had six fascinating Monday evenings on the Gospel of the new Church Year, the Gospel of Luke. With the feast day of St Luke approaching on 18 October, we are well prepared for this beautiful Gospel of Joy & Prayer. If you missed the sessions, please know that there are some resources available.

Prayer and Imagination will be the next focus of the programmes organised by Titipounamu Study & Joy.

In November, Laetitia Puthenpadath will give two introductory sessions into Ignatian Imaginative Contemplation—Praying with Imagination. We will learn how to experience prayer with all senses, engaging mind, heart and emotions. Then, Kieran Fenn fms will introduce us to the Infancy Narratives in the Gospels according to Matthew and Luke.
Scripture and Imagination are the basis of creating Nativity Scenes. I will invite you to join me for a journey through the centuries of this amazing tradition. 

Titipounamu Study & Joy offers many resources that you can access any time online.
You will find a range of video clips, radio programmes, reflections and posts on YouTube and Facebook.
