We shall escape from everyday life to walk the Derbyshire dales. Our base will be a hotel overlooking the Derwent Valley. As we walk for relaxation and enlightenment we shall think of some for whom walking is the only way to escape war, violence, repression and ethnic cleansing.
Summer All-Age Week Malvern - 'With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility: the Challenge of Parenting in the 21st C'
As parents, we too have great power and, consequently, great responsibility for our children’s future. We invite you to join us in sharing your own parenting experiences, successes and challenges. No one has all the answers but through talking, praying, singing and creating together we might just find some solutions.
Dora Turbin was one of the earliest members of CPW and this annual lecture by a leading figure in moral, social or theological thinking was established in her memory. Conversation, conviviality and community mingle with prayer and liturgy in true CPW style for the whole weekend.
The Catholic Church stands at a crossroads. These are complex and challenging times and the issues need to be faced by all of us with honesty, openness, and transparency. Explore these themes and learn about a range of contrasting visions of the Catholic Church of the future.
This Reunion Weekend is open to all members and the BGM will take place on the Saturday. The speaker for the annual Dora Turbin lecture will be Dr Pia Matthews. She is a theologian and a lecturer in Healthcare Ethics at St Mary's University, Twickenham.
On this all-age summer week we shall consider ‘Catholic guilt’ in true CPW style: taking both serious and light hearted looks at how it helps and/or hinders our ability to live fully Christian lives.
In this summer week for all-ages we will revisit the gifts of the Spirit, examining how we can call on them to give us strength, conviction and courage in our daily lives and in tackling the big issues in the wider world.
