We say see you later to Br. Zbigniew, as he leaves for Rome on Tuesday, to take part in a formation course. We pray he enjoys his experience and look forward to him returning at the end of May.

Lucjan will be leaving us for Oxford where he will take up the role of Post-Novitiate Director, Br. Martin in addition to his responsibility as Parish Priest is appointed Guardian of the house and Br. Gordon will be returning to Erith as Assistant Priest and Vicar
The Penitential Pilgrimage for Men
Organised by Br Zbigniew, took place on the 16th March 2018. Men of the Our Lady of the Angels parish walked to the Shrine of the Glorious Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St Simon Stock in Aylesford. We conquer the distance of 17 miles during the 6 hours night walk!!!
Rosary on the Coast for Faith, Life and Peace in the British Isles
This was a day of Pilgrimage and Prayer for the re-flourishing of our Faith, for the grace to build a culture of Life and for true Peace to reign in the hearts of all peoples & Nations.
Recently the faithful of Poland and Ireland have responded to what they sense as a movement of the Holy Spirit to gather around the coasts of their nations and pray to Jesus, the Divine Mercy, for a renewal of faith and respect for human life through the powerful intercession of Our Lady of the Rosary. Having witnessed this, a number of the lay faithful in the British Isles – England, Scotland, Wales and their Isles – have felt the same inspiration and urge to respond.
12th Erith Scout Group
Beavers are our youngest members, and generally meet for an hour per week. They enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout Sleepover with their friends.
For Cubs, excitement and adventure are key. Their programme offers a huge variety of activities surrounding areas of fitness, global and beliefs; whilst allowing them to be creative and get involved in their local communities. Cubs are introduced to exciting outdoor skills and take part in adventurous activities, as well as camps and residential experiences.
Scouts aims to build and develop young people’s confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills, as well as encouraging them to explore their beliefs and attitudes and be creative. It offers them the independence to put these skills into practice at camps and even on international trips.
Scouts are encouraged to work together and take the lead on all sorts of projects, from community based work to planning games and activities for their meetings.
