TUESDAYS WITH TERESA: Making a world of difference

May 21, 2019 Teresa Brierley

I have returned to work after a week with our family, celebrating our son’s wedding. It was a great occasion, on a perfect day. We are proud of Edmund and Karen, and their willingness to commit to the promise of a life-long relationship. So many people spoke highly of both of them, and so the union of these two families has been enshrined in a ritual and celebration to be remembered.

A room filled with young people is not usually silent. However, at Sacred@Seven (S@S), this is what sets it apart. Young people are sitting or kneeling; eyes closed in reflection and prayer. Soft music fills the church, and the centre point is a monstrance holding the most precious thing to a Catholic: The Blessed Sacrament.
