Young adults in Edinburgh are being encouraged to get together this weekend for prayer…and pizza.
Archbishop Leo Cushley hosts the second of his Advent talks on the theme ‘The Real Jesus’.
On Sunday, those aged between 16-30 gathered at the Gillis Centre to hear the first of his talks, before Eucharistic Adoration and a chance for confession in the adjoining St Margaret’s Chapel, followed by pizza and refreshments.
Archbishop Cushley said: “It was a pleasure to see both new and familiar faces at the event.
“While the content of the talks is useful it’s just as important to be with each other and make friends, because encouraging each other in the faith is a positive and uplifting experience.
“Come along over the next two Sundays to learn more about your Catholic Faith and to prepare to mark the birth of our saviour, Jesus Christ.”
This weekend’s talk is at 5pm at the Gillis Centre, 100 Strathearn Road. The event is free and no booking is required.
