Inaugural Juventutem Bristol event - 2nd Sunday of May!

The first Juventutem Bristol event has now been arranged (many thanks to Fr. Goodman for his help!). Here are the details:

Sunday 8 May 2011
12.30 Low Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman rite
Holy Cross, Bedminster
13.40 Lunch! (probably at Bottelino's, a nearby, inexpensive Italian restaurant - tbc.)

Please sign up on the Facebook page, or indicate in the combox below if you would like to come to this (nothing binding!). You can also email me if you prefer.

Whether you are coming or not, please also tell your friends/family about it - it would be fantastic to have as many people there as possible for the inaugural event!

Anyone aged 18-35 may come. One does not have to have prior experience of the Extraordinary Form, or even to be a Catholic, although to receive Holy Communion you must of course be a baptised Catholic in a state of grace (as per usual). The church can be found on google maps in the post with Bristol Mass times, below.

Possible venue for first social!

I like the look of Bolletino's, which is very near Holy Cross Church, Bedminster (a likely but not yet confirmed venue for Holy Mass). There is a special offer for Sunday dining, so it is probable that we will aim for Sunday Mass followed by lunch.

Confirmation of dates and arrangements to follow. Further suggestions very welcome! Early May is the target at this stage. Please inform your friends and suggest that they join the Facebook group (no commitment needed, obviously).

Bolletino's website.

This is readily accessible by public transport (and walkable from Bristol Temple Meads station).

The aim of the future events is very much for like-minded Catholics to enjoy each other's company, and assist in the mutual sanctification of the Church's youth. Therefore, all events will have a blend of solemn worship and chilled out socialising. Spread the word!!

Welcome to Juventutem Bristol!

Juventutem Bristol is a group aimed at fostering faith and community among young Catholics (18-35) who live in and around Bristol. Events are of course not limited just to Bristolians, all are welcome!

The first event will be announced shortly, but it is likely to be shortly after Easter - watch this space! The plan is to have a Mass followed by dinner in an inexpensive nearby restaurant. The probable venue for Mass will be Holy Cross, Bedminster, which is the only parish in Bristol (apart from the SSPX) to offer regular traditional Masses on a Sunday. But other Clifton parishes are fairly accessible too, depending on where the majority of people come from!

In the meantime, please join the Facebook group.
