ACTIVITIES FOR UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
We have a range of activities aimed at university students. Please contact us for more specific information regarding these activities.
EVENINGS OF CONVERSATION
Aldridge has a tradition of hosting evenings of conversation with accomplished professionals. Each evening includes a a Meditation during which our chaplain facilitates personal prayer with reflections on the Gospel and its relevance to daily life. Dinner and conversation follow.
The monthly recollections, with the purpose of helping us better live our faith in the midst of our work and family responsibilities, are led by Fr Peter and are held at Aldridge on a weeknight evening every month.
The recollection commences at 6.50pm and runs through to around 9.00pm.
UNIV is an annual congress for university students held in Rome during Holy Week which draws participants from all over the world.
UNIV was started under the inspiration of St. Josemaria Escriva who saw it as a great opportunity to draw university students closer to the Holy Father.
Service projects offer high school and university students the opportunity to live solidarity by serving the poor and less fortunate. Through a project that is both demanding and rewarding, volunteers will discover the great joy of sacrificing themselves for others. They also benefit from the unique opportunity to interact with the local people, learning about their culture and way of life. Participants also have the opportunity to take advantage of spiritual activities such as confession, daily Mass, and regular times for prayer.
The service projects are organised and run in conjunction with other projects of EDA (Education Development Association), together with Reledev Australia Limited – a not-for-profit NGA, accredited with AusAID.
