Introduction

Welcome to the website of our Diocesan Parish Catechetical Support Team. Here you will find information about the opportunities for catechetical formation offered by the Diocese as it strives to respond to the spiritual, pastoral, educational and catechetical needs of the people of Westminster.

We hope all of you will avail yourself of the resources, events and services provided by the Church in Westminster. These web pages are an important way in which the vibrancy of our Catholic faith makes itself manifest. May they serve to enrich you in the practice of your faith.

Samuel Groups- Speak Lord Your Servant is Listening

Wondering what God is calling you to do with your life?

Samuel Groups are for single young adults (18-35), who feel they would benefit from having some direction as to what God is calling them to do with their lives. London Samuel Groups for 2017-18 will have their first meeting in November.

If you are interested in taking part in this group please email: enquiries@ukvocation.org. Samuel Groups take their name from the story of the Prophet Samuel told in Chapter 3 of the First Book of Samuel in the Old Testament.

Samuel, still a young boy, hears a voice call him by name and thinks it is the voice of the priest Eli. At first Eli does not realize what is happening but when the call is repeated a number of times he recognizes that this is the voice of God. He tells Samuel that when he next hears the voice he should answer, “Speak, Lord, your servant is listening.”

What commitment is involved? Participants take time to listen to God and to His Word speaking to their life. They commit to attending monthly meetings with the group, and to meeting individually with a spiritual guide.

What happens in the monthly group meeting? The heart of the group meetings is a time of Lectio Divina or prayer with the Bible. As well as this there will be some social time, and often a guest speaker and time for discussion.
