Sunday Meeting October 22nd, 7.15pm:

Bible Study and Sharing: The Letter of St. Paul to the Galatians (Chapters 1-2)

On this coming Sunday we will start our common study and sharing of reflections on one Biblical book of your choice (or at least the choice of those expressing their views in a thread here some time ago): the Letter of St. Paul to the Galatians. This is a letter with great theological and spiritual impacts regarding what we today understand as the essence of Christian faith. We will unfold what polemics on a concrete contentious issue in a particular ancient context, tell us Christians and Catholics today, almost 2000 years later. After a short introduction on the letter, its context and themes, by myself, we will spend most of the time in groups reading, discussing and sharing.

The particular text from Gal 1-2 will be provided through handouts, as well as study questions, so there is no need to bring anything apart from yourselves and your interest in understanding this short but important New Testament book.

Time: 7.15pm-9pm (directly after the English Mass)
Venue: The Library, St. Eugenia Catholic Church, Kungsträdgårdsgatan 12, Stockholm

Sunday Meeting October 15th, 7.15pm:

Edith Stein, her conversion to Catholicism and her destiny as Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross: "The Great Experience"

Welcome to the Chalpaincy's Sunday Meeting, where Karl Eidem, member of St. Eugenia parish, will present his new book "The Great Experience" about the 20th century philosopher Edith Stein, who was born a Jewish faithful but converted to the Catholic Church, was called to religious life, became a Carmelite nun and was canonized after having died as martyr in the Nazi concentration camp of Auschwitz during the Holocaust. She is now venerated as one of the six Patron saints of Europe. Her conversion came 1921 after a shattering salvation experience and in his new book (published in Swedish, so on this Sunday we will get a unique English summary), Karl Eidem provides a historical context in order for us to better understand the events of Edith Stein's/St. Theresa Benedicta's life: what does her path in life have to tell us today?

Time: 7.15pm-9pm (directly after the English Mass)
Venue: The Library, St. Eugenia Catholic Church, Kungsträdgårdsgatan 12, Stockholm

WELCOME on Sunday October 8th: We Organize Fine Dining Evening - Please Read Instructions Below!

Dear all, on Sunday October 8th, we will say farewell to Fr. Marc-Stephan Giese SJ and also share a toast for my then two weeks time as priest, through a more festive dinner on our normal Sunday meeting time, i.e. in St. Eugenia after the English mass at about 7.15pm.

The dinner will be consisting by three courses, cooked by you who plan to attend in teams of your choice, and wine, provided by Fr. Marc-Stephan and myself. We will for this occasion also make the localities more "fine dining like", or at least more "dinner like" than normal.

All are welcome but we NEED to know for sure if you are coming or not, to be able to plan for the cooking teams and the wine. So IF you will attend, please DO like this:

1. Like this message by clicking the HEART symbol.
2. Write in the tread if you want to be part of the preparation of the starter, the main course or the dessert.
3. Find others in the tread who want to prepare the same course as you.
4. Decide course in your team and let us all know here in the tread what course it will be.
(As understood, someone needs to take the lead in deciding/planning for each course!)

At the latest on Wednesday Oct 4 the teams can just inform me, via the tread or a normal Messenger mail here, if you need to use a kitchen here in the Eugenia house to cook/prepare fully (then we will use the youth room downstairs and Elisabeth or myself will make this available at a time during the day/afternoon for your) OR if you will do the cooking at home/at another place and just need to heat it here (then we will use the normal kitchen at the ground floor).

So warmly welcome and please once more read through points 1-4 above if you plan to attend. Looking forward to reading the tread here and seeing you on Sunday!

Dear all! Great to see more people registering for our dinner evening on Sunday Oct 8 starting at 7.15pm in the library of St. Eugenia church. See my main message below. Here are 4 extra points:

1) Please register your participation no later than on Thursday evening Oct 5 at 11:59pm, because people need to have Friday as shopping day. Register by clicking on the heart symbol in my main message below - then we know you surely plan to come!

2) Those who have liked with a heart symbol will be counted on Friday morning Oct 6 and that number will be the number for which the cooking/preparation teams will plan.

3) After registering, please contact one of the "course teams" (according to the discussion in the tread in the main message below) - all who do not partake in preparations can instead help out by cleaning up, so no problem.

4) Our intern Elisabeth will be available in/around the library from 4.30pm on Sunday. She can show you where to heat up things after the English Mass (and where to store them during Mass) OR if teams need to cook she can open the cooking kitchen in the youth room in the basement.

So please don't forget to register before Thursday Oct 5 at 11:59pm! Looking forward to seeing you!
