    Oh great I think it's £60 and you need accommodation too.
    Yeah, I know. £55 if you send a cheque by post though, and that includes a pitch for your tent or a space in the big tent. I did put in my request for the time off when there would still have been time to get the early bird though :sad:

    Hey everyone! I posted this in the X Soc but for those of you who are not part of that thread: here is a picture of me graduating from Oxford University yesterday! I wanted to share it with you guys because you have been so supportive and wonderful with your promises of prayers, etc. I really appreciate all that you guys have done for me.

    The red rose in my hair is in honour of St Therese of Lisieux. I got told off for wearing it but was very proud to have it prominently on display :cool:

    Thank you! The telling off was right before my final bow to the Vice Chancellor as well! Bit late in the day to start telling me off then, lol

    How are you doing?

    Thank you! The silver bracelet around my wrist is also a rosary, from Fatima. The brown rosary around my neck is from San Marco's Basilica in Venice

    Though remember not to wear a Rosary as a 'fashion' item. It is a sacred object and must be kept in the pocket so to say to keep 'praying with Mary' throughout the day

    I know someone who study Philosophy at St Mary's, Twickenham, first year. He's not on TSR though. He's so passionate about Philosophy and Ethics he got 100% on all his modules for his A levels :O

    Oh just wondered... I'm going to St. Mary's, Twickenham (hopefully) in September and doing Theology (but it's more Religious Studies) at A-Level now.

    Getting 100% on the modules is extremely hard and says something about enthusiasm and dedication!

    Will def pray that you make your grades! It's meant to be a lovely campus and I'm sure it's an all-round lovely place too. My ex-tutor's husband is one of the Theology tutors there :ninja:

    Oh wow! Thanks Yeh, I should be fine in making the grades, but hey, we can never be too sure hahahahahaha

    Yes after visiting the campus, it definitely feels really homely and pretty, like a mini-Nottingham campus... trees and grass everywhere Like a little village.

    Just a quick question to fellow Catholics...have you ever felt like God was not real/started losing faith?

    How did you solve this?
