Glastonbury Pilgrimage

The great glory of our Diocese is the Pilgrimage in honour of Our Lady St Mary of Glastonbury. From time immemorial, stretching back into the mists of our country’s history, Catholics have come to Glastonbury to be with Our Lady. We, in our day, continue this great tradition for the salvation of souls and the joy of heaven. This pilgrimage takes place on the second Sunday of July, so this year falls on July 8th. The programme for the day is as follows:

In the Shrine:
11.30am Rosary
12.00pm Silent Adoration
3.00pm Benediction

In the Abbey grounds:
12.00-3.00pm Confessions and individual prayer
2.15pm Rosary Procession
3.30pm Mass in the Abbey

Please do come along to the Pilgrimage to sing the praises of Our Lady. When we do so, we join with the countless saints who have asked the prayers of Our Lady in this place - not to mention  all of the folk, religious, lay and ordained who have come here to pray for the good of the Church and the world.

So let us come and ask our martyrs to strengthen our faith, and implore the angels to raise our voices to the courts of heaven, and the sweet Virgin to surround us with her love.

Come to the Pilgrimage!

Well Doctored

I am well and truly doctored! My graduation was yesterday in Durham cathedral.

A rather spiffy gown.

A lovely mother (mine).

Fr Phipps' Ordination

Thursday saw Fr Seth Phipps being ordained to the Sacred Priesthood in Warrington.

There are wonderful pictures and an account here.

I was able to take some myself, until it was announced that no one should take pictures. So I stopped. I am very obedient (when I want to be!)
