Asking The Lord

6th October 2015

As you may be aware, a part of the Church of England’s current Reform and Renewal initiative is to focus on the vocation of the whole people to God - encouraging all to explore discipleship and service and raising up a variety of lay or ordained minsters. A specific target has been set to increase the number of ordinands by 50% in order to meet the needs of dioceses for incumbents and other clergy in the future.

As we enter this new phase we recognise that it is vital that this work is under-pinned with prayer, and we are therefore turning to the Religious Communities and asking for your help to undertake a serious and sustained prayer for vocations throughout the church.

Attached to this page is a monthly cycle of daily prayer intentions covering every diocese and a variety of ministries. We would be delighted if your community felt able to commit to praying these intentions regularly. This is the first stage in a determined effort to encourage the church to pray for vocations at national, diocesan, parish and individual level.

Please do feel free to customise and develop these prayers to suit your local context. If your community is able to commit to this prayer project please can you email me on catherine.williams@churchofengland.org so that we can keep a list of those who are praying: thereby drawing encouragement for this essential part of the Church’s work.

Yours in Christ, Catherine Williams

Vocations Conference

28th August 2015

Under the new dispensation the Church of England is inviting all groups to flourish and grow and the Catholic Societies’ Vocations Initiative entitled here-i-am.org, not only represents an unprecedented working coalition of different Anglican Catholic Societies, but also a hugely successful piece of outreach that is challenging men of our constituency to think seriously about the possibility that they are being called to ministerial priesthood in the Church of England.

Starting on Friday 28th August 25 men (with ages ranging from 19 to 55,) will be coming together for 3 days at St Stephen’s House Oxford, to pray, consider and discern whether God may be calling them.  Key note speakers include The Reverend Liz Boughton, Selection Secretary and National Advisor for Young Vocations at Ministry Division, Father Damien Feeney Catholic Evangelist for Wolverhampton, Bishop Norman Banks and Father Darren Smith (Additional Curates Society).

Father Smith would like to encourage everyone in the Catholic constituency to uphold these men in your prayers.  Father Smith said “One of the encouraging signs for Anglican Catholics, is that in spite of the many challenges that face us God still continues to call priests to serve in our parishes”.

Further details of the conference can be found on here-i-am.org.uk or on twitter.com/hereiamvocation.

 

 

Community of The Resurrection

Study Day

10th July 2015

A Study Day Open to All: Contemplating with Fra Angelico Led by Iain McKillop

Friday 10 July 2015  10.00am - 4.00pm (opportunity to stay on and join the Community for evensong at 6.00pm)

 

A reflective study day exploring Fra Angelico’s paintings and the Dominican prayer traditions they reflect. As Prior of his community, Fra Angelico would have been immersed in Dominican teaching on art and faith. His paintings were designed to stimulate contemplation and preaching. How does this help us to appreciate his work and how can his art inspire our own contemplative Christian life? Talks will be interspersed with times for personal prayer and quiet.

 

Iain McKillop is a painter, art historian and Priest. He worked on the Psalms as Artist-in-Residence with the Community in 2014 and has contributed art meditations to the Community magazine. Iain has made a study of many traditions which use art in prayer.

His altarpieces hang in Gloucester Cathedral and West Molesey with Stations of the Cross in Bury St. Edmunds and Ewell. Iain’s exhibitions regularly tour British cathedrals and churches. Further information about Iain can be found at:
