To continue sharing information with our Friends from outside Poland about our current activities, we present the brief for November 2011.
- The programme of detailed study of the Catechism of the Catholic Church under the leadership of our chaplain, the Revd. Dr Sławomir Szczepaniak lecturer at the Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński University in Warsaw is continued. The two meetings in November covered Chapter Three “Man's Response to God” and the first paragraph of Section Two, “I Believe in God”. The participants did not fear to voice their concern and criticism about certain formulations of the Catechism, however all the discussions have led us to a better understanding of our faith, professed by the Catholic Church.
- The activities connected with youth participation in policy making by the authorities of Warsaw is continued, along with the Thursday integration and discussion meetings is continued.
- On November 11th, when Independence Day is celebrated in Poland, two members of the managing board, Jan Lipski and Jan Murawski, have met in Warsaw the head of the International Affairs Committee of the Lithuanian Catholic Federation Ateitis, Milda Vitkutė. The project of the bilateral event was discussed. The week-long meeting will take place next summer in the highland region of southern Poland and will be dedicated to mutual integration, recreation, breaking stereotypes and discussing the problems and methods of applying Catholic teaching in social and political life.
- On November 13th the Holy Mass for the members of Drum Bun was celebrated by our Chaplain.
Now the Section is preparing for its General Assembly (Walbun) next Thursday, December 8th, when its last year's activities are going to be revised, new ideas and goals set up and new managing board (Robur) elected.
