Apologies for the short blog-gap; this past week has been an apostolic one - doing caetchist training in London, holding a culture of life film night with the Friars in Canning Town, and then cheffing for 80 at the Brum Uni CathSoc annual dinner.
However, during the previous week Pam Stenzel gave the "Sex has a price tag" talk at Trinity and All Saints Colleges" in Leeds. The talk, which was essentially giving the truth about the consequences of sexual intercourse outside marriage - facts which our culture witholds from us, was a real breakthrough into a culture where there is a silent monopolisation by falsehood. This was the first public talk concerning the subject of sex education, in its widest sense, that has taken place in the Leeds Diocese during my lifetime. It was interesting to note that Pam also gave her talk in two High Schools in the city of Leeds during her visit - both of them State schools.
The sixty or so people who came from across the north for her "Trinity and All Saints" talk were very enthused; it is hoped that Pam will return to speak in Catholic High Schools in the Diocese too!
Special thanks to Christine who was at the heart of organising Pam's visit to Leeds.
