Workshop for lectors

As previously mentioned, we will have a mini workshop for lectors and the time is on next Sunday (23.09) for about 30 min after the Mass (hence approximately 19:00-19:30). The event will take place in the church after the Mass where all of us will be encouraged to move to the first 1-2 rows in the right side of the church, in front of the lectern. The workshop is primarily designed for lectors, but also for those among the assembly who are interested to hear and/or to join the ministry.


We will briefly go through the spiritual (prayer and mindset, reflection on and understanding biblical text, Liturgy of the Word, etc.) and practical (preparation, procedure, movement, articulation, using the microphone, etc.) aspects of serving as lectors. At the moment, the format is that I will mostly share my experience that I obtained during training and preparations as lector. In the future, we can have more sessions covering different aspects if needed. Hope to see many of you and to also receive feedback and sharing from you all.

NEW ACTIVITY: Theology on Tap

Dear CAYACers,

We care about our relation to God and our faith; we want also our everyday life to be as Holy as possible 😇 Then why not to speak about these topics in a more… secular environment, with a pint of good beer in hand and couple of locals around?🍻🍻🍻

In so called Theology on Tap we go to a pub in Copenhagen, grab some beer and have an informal discussion about theology and faith in everyday life context. In this way we can feel more relaxed sharing our thoughts and also reach out some future CAYACers!

So, SAVE THE DATE: 21.09 (Friday). We gather at St. Augustin’s Church right after the Danish Mass (around 18:45). Then we go to the pub (Fr. Paweł chooses which one).

Programme for August 2018

Dear Friends,

The summer is still really good here, so enjoy as much as you can! But now, in August you do not need to do “churching” on Sunday anymore, as CAYAC Masses come back 🙂

The first Mass will be held on Sunday, 5th of August at 18:00. Fr. Paweł Rakowski will say the Mass for us, and he will also confess in Polish, English, Danish or Italian between 17:15 and 17:45. CAYAC Choir has a music rehearsal at 17:00. Otherwise, there are no other activities scheduled, so there is some room for something spontaneous 🙂

During the month we will have our Masses every Sunday at 18:00 (confession from 17:15).

Other events:

  • Every Tuesday and Thursday – evening Mass at 6 pm followed by an adoration (Tuesday) or meditation (Thursday).

Dear Friends,

Yes, it’s true. It has been the most sunny month ever observed in Denmark. So far, so good! That is why we would like to conclude the whole academic year with CAYAC at our summer grill party at 9.06 (Saturday). Have a look at the details:

We will chill here (Bellevue Beach in Klampenborg).

We start at 14:00 and stay until at least 18:30.

The principle is: bring your own beer and the food you want to grill (meat, sausages, wegetables, etc.). We provide the coal, water and soft drinks, and some salads.

 

During the month we will have our Masses every Sunday at 18:00 (confession from 17:15). The last Mass will be held on the 24th of June. After the Masses in June there is no fixed programme, but if the weather remains fantastic we usually go to the park together and chill!

Other events:

  • Every Tuesday and Thursday – evening Mass at 6 pm followed by an adoration (Tuesday) or meditation (Thursday).
