Tuesday 12 May
19u30-22u: HG at Scott & Jeremy's. As part of the preparation for the Diocese in Europe's contribution to the Shared Conversations (http://www.sharedconversations.org/) we'll be watching the third of three BBC programmes presented by Diarmaid MacCulloch, professor of church history at the University of Oxford and an Anglican deacon, Sex and the Church. The programmes can be seen here: https://drive.google.com/a/anglican.be/folderview?id=0B_nEacZRPHG_bGE2NTRPdXNoSDA&usp=sharing# (but it's much more fun to come to HG and watch them together!)
Wednesday 13 May
No p-café today - but David will give a repeat performance of his paper on Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Schelling, delivered at a conference in New York, at next week's p-café.
20u: Matt's last rugby match of the season, against the old boys, at the KU Leuven pitch.
Thursday 14 May - Ascension Day
13u: For those who are in Leuven at a loose end on this public holiday, try our DIY picnic in the Provinciedomein Kessel-Lo (http://www.vlaamsbrabant.be/vrije-tijd-cultuur/provinciedomeinen/kessello/index.jsp): just turn up with something to eat and drink. (But if it's pouring with rain, attendance at this happy event may not be very high!!)
Sunday 17 May (Sunday after Ascension Day)
17u30: Choir Practice
18u30: Holy Communion: Jack will celebrate and Jane will preach. After a halting rendition from Jack last Sunday, Bouke's new Dutch translation of Eucharistic prayer D will be used for the second time.
