Our annual festival which celebrates the richness of the Catholic traditions of the Church of England.
This year our focus is on 'Scripture and...', with a view to delving deeply into the variety of ways in which Holy Scripture nourishes us as Christians and highlighting how the Scriptures root and enliven us as missional and committed Catholics. Topics covered and discussed will include 'Scripture and the Parish', 'Scripture and the Church', 'Scripture and prayer' amongst others.
Join us as we welcome a rich variety of speakers and especially as we look forward to the visit of Bishop Rowan Williams, who will deliver our keynote address and preside at our Solemn Mass.
The preacher at the Mass will be Sr Helen Costigane, SHCJ, who currently teaches and researches in Heythrop College. She is also currently the Academic Vice Principal there.
To end the day, we will sing Evensong and Pontifical Benediction. Benediction will be given by the Bishop of Fulham, the Rt Revd Jonathan Baker.
The music will be provided by the organist and choir of St Peter's Great Berkhamsted in the Diocese of St Albans.
There are many spaces left to come along to hear the keynote address, to worship at the Solemn Mass, to share in lunch (at £7.50) and to end the day with a beautiful Evensong & Pontifical Benediction.
We are currently operating a waiting list for small group workshops for the early afternoon, due to high demand.
