Wednesday has now been and gone now, and what a day it was!
Unfortunately, when we woke up on Wednesday the rain was absolutely pouring in Nympsfield, but this didn’t dampen our spirits as everyone was excited for the day trip to Stroud! We got on the coach after a lovely morning prayer led by Tom O and headed straight to the bowling alley. Everyone had a great game with lots of high scores – Mia came out on top with a huge score of 113! Once we had finished bowling we had some chips which were absolutely delicious.
Thankfully it had stopped raining by the time we had finished bowling and so we set off on the short walk to the swimming pool. A quick change and everyone was in, playing with the floats, ball and weights that were on offer. Lots of splashing later and it was time to get out far too quickly! We then walked to the church hall of the parish of the Immaculate Conception to have our lunch (thanks very much guys!) as the park was still too wet for a picnic. It was then back to the coach for the journey back to the convent.
When we got back and had a bit of a rest, it was movie time! The film of choice was the Lego Batman movie and was thoroughly enjoyed by all, especially the adults! Once we had had a lovely dinner of sausage and mash, we took part in prayer stations in the chapel. There were lots of things to get everyone thinking and some tasks to complete to help us understand and pray. There was an opportunity to pray in front of the Blessed Sacrament too, and Fr Tom gave us Benediction at the end of our prayer time. In total, everyone was praying for an hour and twenty minutes!
What a busy day we had and it was no wonder that we were all worn out by the end and ready for a good sleep and all that Thursday had to offer. Check back soon for an update on all the things we did!
