Sr Karen visits Abu Dhabi

In May Sr Karen, of our Blackrock community, was invited to give a study day to the Parish Catechetical leaders of the Apostolic Vicariate of Southern Arabia in Abu Dhabi on behalf of the Maryvale Institute, Birmingham.  The group comprising of men and women from 14 different nationalities are all voluntary leaders of the catechetical programmes in their local parishes.  Sr Karen says of her visit, “it was a rich and diverse experience of Church and catechesis at its best, in the midst of a Muslim culture, where Catholics have to truly live their faith so that it may be handed on to the next generation.”
