Newsletter October 2011


If you look in the program there are many things happening the coming month.  But that is also due to that we are  many people involved and with many different interests. To meet under various and changing circumstances can also be very interesting -walking, workshop exercices, having lunch, talking- and praying. The last thing is really in the center of our community, to direct ourselves more consciously towards God. From this center all other things stem.

The first weekend of November, Friday to Sunday, there will be a Student retreat at the monastery of the Dominican sisters in Rögle.  Taras will prepare this together with br Yves- there will come more about this later.

Are there some of you who are praying the Rosary or would like to start and to do that together? Why not form a group and find a time each week to pray in the chapel at Sandgatan? Talk to each others and with me about this.

There is always place for new initiatives. Just let me know and I try to make it fit in with other things, so that we keep a balance in what we are proposing. Many of you also joined for a long while, some also have a good professional experience, or just human ability, to start and guide a group of your own. There is in our church a great need for new initiatives, prayers, formation or talk, or kinds of  voluntary action- think of  if you yourself, together with others could take such an initiative,
bye for now, see you, yours br Björn

SUNDAY Oct 9th at 6pm – FILM: The Thin Red Line (USA 1997,160 min­­­) by Terrence Malick
“Although The Thin Red Line will not go down as the kind of war movie classic, there are still many reasons to see this motion picture. See it for Malick’s unparalleled visual style, for the primary character portrayals, and for the effectively chaotic combat sequences. The movie has the capacity to engage on both an intellectual and a visceral level.”
SUNDAY Oct 16th:  –Walk to the Dominican monastery in Rögle
We plan to walk to Rögle and attend the mass at the Dominican sisters´convent. The liturgy there is always beautiful, Rögle is a really lovely place and the walk there is very nice, too!
We will gather outside Lund Station (läge K, ie the bus stop which is on the side of Clemenstorget that faces the station) at 9:25 to take the bus 6 to Linero (arrival 9:46), where we will start the walk to Rögle (5km).
The mass at 11:30, then we will eat. Take a picnic, outdoor clothes and good shoes!
Please let me know before Saturday 15th noon if you intend to come!
Nolwenn (nperron_2000(at) – 0736648938)
MONDAY Oct 10th and 24th at 7.30 pm – Workshop: Memory and Images
Join for an interesting evening on the theme of Memory and Images. At first it might seen a particular subject – but in fact it´s in the heart of human experience, spiritual life and thus of Christian life, to remember, to create or receive menthal images. We´ll do simple exercices which can be both interesting and fun.
MÅNDAG 31 okt 18.30:  – Kärleken övergår allt
OBS!  PÅ LIBERIET (den medeltida bygganden snett bakom Domkyrkan)
Vi  läser under hösten några stycken ur den latinamerikanske munken Ernesto Cardenals bok Kärleken övergår allt – korta stycken med mycket innehåll.
