NEWS
Vatican Commissions Play for AOS Centenary Celebrations
The Vatican's Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development has commissioned a new dramatic production for the 100th Anniversary of the Apostleship of the Sea.  The play, "Star of the Sea", is written by Stephen Callaghan and will be performed by AGAP at the World Congress taking place next October in Glasgow to mark the occasion, with additional performances planned for Lentfest and the Edinburgh Fringe.  
AGAP Joins International Network of Catholic Cultural Centres
AGAP has taken part in an international consultation by the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Culture that aims to bring together Catholic Cultural Centres around the world in an effort to encourage the sharing of information and opportunities.  AGAP will be listed in a database that will facilitate this.
AGAP Schools Work Expands Horizons
AGAP hit the ground running as the new academic year began.  Vocations Awareness Week brought an invitation for AGAP's director, Stephen Callaghan, to give a personal testimony to S2 and S4 pupils at Trinity High School, Renfrewshire, reflecting on his own call to serve God through the work of AGAP.  This was followed by an invitation to give the Keynote Address at the S5 Conference at Notre Dame High School, Greenock, which focussed on the school's motto "My Soul Glorifies the Lord".  Both schools are in Paisley Diocese and the invitations underline the good support that AGAP has in neighbouring dioceses across Scotland.  We were also delighted to undertake a series of drama workshops on Missionary Saints, St Mary MacKillop and St Columba, with Primary 7 pupils at St Timothy's Primary School, Glasgow.  AGAP offers an extensive series of faith-related opportunities for schools that can be booked all year round.  Details are available on our website.
Catenians Circle Hears about the Mission of AGAP
The Stirling Circle of the Catenian Association learned about the work of AGAP at their recent meeting in Dunblane when Stephen Callaghan was invited to address its members as the guest speaker.  The talk focused on the Church's teaching about the Via Pulchritudinous ("The Way of Beauty") as a path to God and how AGAP's ministry seeks to put this teaching into practice.
John Cairney's Series: "The Marian Way" Published

Following the successful publication of "A Glasgow Calvary" by AGAP during Lentfest, John Cairney's beautiful series of seven paintings on the life of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, entitled "The Marian Way" is now available in booklet form for just £1 each plus postage & packing. The booklet provides scripture passages and meditations by the artist as well as the images. Contact: info@agap.org.uk or call 0141 552 5527.
