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:

PROCESSION & PRAYERBOOK EUCHARIST - THE FEAST OF CORPUS CHRISTI ST TEILO'S CHURCH, LLANTILIO PERTHOLEY (NR ABERGAVENNY)

4th June 2015

Dear friends,

 

This year we will be celebrating the Feast of Corpus et Sanguis Christi on Thursday June 4th at 12noon with a Procession and Festival Eucharist (according to the Prayerbook) in St Teilo's Church, Llantilio Pertholey. The setting of the Ordinary will be Harold Darke's Communion Service in E sung by the Festival Singers, and the celebrant will be Fr Julian Gray, the newly installed parish priest of Llantilio Pertholey with Bettws Chapel and St David's Llanddewi Skirrid.

 

Wine, soft drinks, juices and nibbles will be served after Mass at the west end, and we'd be delighted to welcome all guests and visitors to this special service on this important feast day in the church year.

 

Please do help us to spread the word about this service, and help us make it a special event, by telling anyone you think might be interested in joining us. Visitors and clergy from other parishes will be most welcome to join us in the congregation on this important festival day in the liturgical year.

 

Singers would also be most welcome to join with the choir, with a rehearsal at 915am on the day itself, but are requested to make contact by email (jjr84094@gmail.com) in advance due to space limitations in the chancel and choir stalls.

 

Welcome!
