"Alive and young" Church at Soho Square

Last night, I was giving a talk on "Humanae Vitae - a challenge to the culture" at St Patrick's Soho Square. The parish priest, Fr Alexander Sherbrooke runs a thriving parish in the heart of London with the "School of Evangelisation" putting into practice the call of Pope John Paul for a new evangelisation.

The room was packed with young adults and I was impressed by this example of Pope John Paul's affirmation, repeated by Pope Benedict: "The Church is alive, the Church is young." My talk was one in a theological lecture series running most weeks from the end of February until the middle of June, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Humanae Vitae.

The parish is going to publish the talks on its website so if you want to see what I said, I'll post a link when the talk is published.
