YOUCAT on Tap: The Battle of Prayer

Having a prayer life, whether personal or communal, is difficult. The “battle of prayer”, as the catechism describes it, manifests itself in a variety of ways. Sometimes it’s laziness. Sometimes it’s the feeling that praying isn’t helping. Sometimes its distractions. Sometimes it’s discouragement from the dry periods. Sometimes it’s questioning whether God even exists and if he does exist whether he is listening.This Friday at YOUCAT on Tap we will be exploring some of the most common struggles with prayer. Beer and pizza starts at 5pm, and YOUCAT begins at 5:30pm. All are welcome!

What is YOUCAT on Tap?

YOUCAT on Tap is a faith/ethics/theology/life discussion group that meets every Friday from 5:30 to 7pm. YOUCAT is open to everyone who has questions about faith and life. Using the YOUCAT, video resources, and group discussion we address your questions using a Catholic lens. YOUCAT is open to Catholics and non-Catholics, believers and the spiritually curious.

Mass this week

This week’s Mass is the Commissioning Mass for the NCSS. Help welcome in the new execs with your prayers and help us ask God to guide us in our leadership of your club.

The weekend includes a number of talks, as well as, group discussion, prayer, games, food, and fellowship.

Ecumenical Prayer on Sunday Nights!

“I ask…on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me and have loved them as you have loved me.” (John 17:20-23)

Would you like to come together with other Christian groups on campus to celebrate unity and ask more for the love and power of God in his ministry in McGill through us? Come join us each Sunday at 7:00 pm in the Presbyterian College auditorium (basement) for praise and worship, testimonies as to how God is working in the different groups and individuals, and to PRAY PRAY PRAY – for this city, this campus, and one another.
