We had a Quiet Day today at Douai Abbey near Newbury. In a group of 25 people we had 3 teenagers so I was really thrilled. It wasn't a fabulous, mind-blowing youthwork designed day. It was a quiet day for the congregation and these three young people were there as members of the congregation. For me that says so much about integrating our teens into the life of the church. I was on hand in case any of them really couldn't cope with sitting in silence on their own but they were great and really got a lot out of it, including one who was really worried she'd not manage to be quiet. Fabulous!
