Last Tuesday evening I went over to Cosham to dedicate and bless a new Meeting Centre that has been opened by the members of the NeoCatechumenal Way mission to Portsmouth. The room is at 61 High Street, Cosham and behind the pink coloured coffee shop “Cake O’Nuts.” The facility is funded by the Missio in order to be used for prayer, meetings, catechesis and all sorts of other gatherings, and it has the advantage of being a “non-church site” when as part of the mission, members attract potential converts and draw them into conversation. The families that make up the Missio have already attracted a number of new members and they were present for the blessing of the centre last week. We began with Vespers which included testimonies from the families and also from the new members and during the liturgy I blessed the room. Afterwards, we had a truly splendid buffet and a time for conversation. Please pray for the success of this long-term mission, which is truly seeking to reach out to the wider community to find the lost and the needy.
