Welcome to the Chaplaincy's Sunday Meeting, February 25:

POST-MASS SOCIAL WITH SOME WINE AND SNACKS

This upcoming Sunday, we will have no organized chaplaincy programme due to that I am away for the annual confirmation retreat week. BUT Ursula has promised to organise a post-English Mass social with some wine and snacks in the Café. All chaplaincy members who want some refreshments and spontaneous sharing after Mass are most welcome!

NEXT Sunday's programme (March 4) will be a workshop on the topic "Prayer". What is prayer? Its opportunities and its difficulties (i.e. how can one get an organized prayer life without being monk or nun)?

Time his Sunday: 7.15pm-8.30pm
Venue (as usual): Café Eugenia, St. Eugenia Catholic Church, Kungsträdgårdsgatan 12, Stockholm

Welcome to the Chaplaincy's Sunday Meeting, February 18:

"MY VOCATION AS CATHOLIC AND PROFESSIONAL"

This upcoming Sunday, we will listen to and reflect upon yet another personal testimony of how to live a vocation as Catholic and a professional academic, as we will be visited by Ms. Lovisa Bergdahl, Assistant professor in Pedagogy at Södertörn University College and member of the Marie Bebådelse Catholic parish in Stockholm. Lovisa will share insights from her faith journey as convert, from a free church community, to the Catholic Church, as well as thoughts on the challenges and opportunities in living one's vocation as Catholic/Christian and professional in a highly Secular environment. In other words, we will through Lovisa have more food for our thoughts on Christian vocations. Our questions and input will also be appreciated. Welcome!

Time: 7.15pm-9pm (gathering directly after the English Mass for refreshments, programme starting at 7.45pm)

Venue (as usual): Café Eugenia, St. Eugenia Catholic Church, Kungsträdgårdsgatan 12, Stockholm

Welcome to the Chaplaincy's Sunday Pub Jaunt, February 11:

This coming Sunday we don't have any ordinary meeting in the Café. Instead (I am away for two days and Elisabeth's predecessor Ursula hasn't started yet) you are all invited to a social gathering in a pub/bar somewhere nearby the Church to talk about issues top of mind, like perhaps: How was Uppsala last Sunday for those who were there? What theological issues thrill me right now? Good and bad homilies we remember? Or how is life in general as a young Catholic student or professional right now? Etc...

Our members Mafe Camacho and Daniel Queiroz have promised to prepare the jaunt for tonight - i.e. gather people and tell where to go. Mafe and Daniel will wait in the Church hall (Kyrktorget) directly after the English Mass is ended, i.e. around 7.15pm. Those of you who want to join in make sure to find Mafe and Daniel and gather around them before 7.30pm, because that is the departure time from St. Eugenia.

Please do join! Welcome!

PS Next Sunday Feb 18 we have a normal session in the Café again: apart from introducing our new parish intern Ursula who will work with us, our guest is a Catholic academic at Södertörns University, Ms. Lovisa Bergdahl. She will talk about her vocation in life, her road to the Church (she is a convert) and important aspects of the life as a Catholic professional in contemporary western culture!

Welcome to the Chaplaincy's Sunday Meeting, January 21:

REASONING ABOUT GOD'S EXISTENCE AND PROVING IT: POSSIBLE, AND WHY IMPORTANT TO US TODAY?

This upcoming Sunday, Fr. Mikael Schink SJ from Uppsala will visit us again and this time lead a talk (we are expected to actively contribute!) about God's existence in the sense of how to reason about it and how to prove/demonstrate it - and why such a "Scholastic" form of Theology would matter to us as Christians today. How does it affect our Christian, spiritual life? And how does it affect culture and society? Welcome to listen and to share your views and thoughts! (Fr. Mikael will also celebrate the English Mass at 6pm, directly preceding our meeting.)

Time: 7.15pm-9pm (gathering directly after the English Mass for refreshments, programme starting at 7.45pm)
Venue (as usual): Café Eugenia, St. Eugenia Catholic Church, Kungsträdgårdsgatan 12, Stockholm

Welcome to the first Chaplaincy's Sunday Meeting of 2018, Sunday 14th:

HAVE YOUR SAY: EVALUATION OF LAST AUTUMN AND PLANNING FOR THIS SEMESTER - TOPICS, SPEAKERS, ACTIVITIES?

Happy new year to you all! I hope you all had a blessed Christmas time and are ready for the challenges of a new year. It's definitely time to kick off a new semester for the Stockholm Catholic Student Chaplaincy.

You are all most welcome on Sunday when we are going to plan our activities in the coming months, out of an evaluation of the last semester. What has worked well, regarding topics, speakers and forms of meetings? What hasn't worked that well? What have we been messing? What would we like to do, and how, in the coming months? Activities apart from the Sunday meetings (retreats - what kind of, other activities)?

We will discuss in smaller, Café table groups and round up with a common discussion.

Two topics/activities for this semester are already planned: next Sunday January 21, we will talk about ways to know God's existence, i.e. why the issue of God's existence nd ways to reason about it particularly matters in our days. And Sunday February 4th will be a pre-Lent recollection day together with the Catholic Student Chaplaincy of Uppsala in Uppsala (ended with English Mass in St. Lars Church in Uppsala on that evening). More about this when we meet on Sunday.

But it's much appreciated that as many as possible can come on Sunday so that things we will do in the coming months will reflect your needs and ideas about how to strenghten faith, hope and charity, and community, for you as Catholic students in Stockholm in 2018. Welcome!

Time: 7.15pm-9pm (gathering directly after the English Mass for refreshments, lecture starting at 7.45pm)

Venue (as usual): Café Eugenia, St. Eugenia Catholic Church, Kungsträdgårdsgatan 12, Stockholm
