Our next talk takes place on Wednesday 5th June at St Teresa's Church in Beaconsfield (HP9 2PL).  The topic is Laws of Purification: Should They Still Apply Today? and the speaker is Fleur Dorrell.

The Bible has strict laws and rituals about holiness and cleanliness: what you can and cannot eat, touch and do – especially where God dwelt. Then Jesus arrived and challenged us to see these laws in a new way. Fleur Dorrell looks at Old Testament rituals as the backdrop to Jesus’ teaching and miracles, and to current medical insights. She shows us how some of them are still part of our Catholic faith today.

A series of monthly talks on the Holy Scriptures, looking at their relevance to us in our lives today.  An initiative by the South Bucks Pastoral Area under the guidance of Fr Jerome Ituah OCD.

The aim of our sessions is to broaden our knowledge of and to discern the message the Scriptures hold for each of us and their relevance in our daily lives today.  Each talk will “stand alone” and will be given by an invited guest speaker.  We hope the sessions will offer guidance on reading the Scriptures and a prayerful and reflective time together.

There is no charge for the talks, but donations towards costs will be gratefully accepted.  You can make a contribution by cash (donation basket in the church porch), cheque made payable to "Saint Teresa’s Beaconsfield" with "Emmaus Donation" on the reverse, or by bank transfer per details below.
