Autumn Assembly 2019

The Society holds an Autumn Assembly every year. It is an opportunity for members to meet up again, attend a workshop, share in Mass and socialise. The event always includes the Annual General Meeting and the Crichton Memorial Lecture. In recent years, the Assembly has been extended to include an event and a meal on the Friday evening, which has proved very popular with many members.

This event has now taken place

The information given below has been retained for now to give a flavour to anyone thinking about coming along next year.

Details of next year’s assembly will be posted as soon as they are available.

On Friday 4 October, we will gather in the beautiful city of York for the 90th Anniversary Autumn Assembly. We will meet at York Minster at 3.00pm for a guided tour of the Minster. There will be some free time to explore the Undercroft Museum and Crypts before Evensong. Then we will move on to dinner at a local restaurant.

On Saturday, 5 October, our day starts at 10.00am at the English Martyrs RC Church, Dalton Terrace, YO24 4DA. After Morning Prayer, Mary Ryan, Trustee of the Society, will present 90 years of SSG – the uncut version! 

After lunch and our AGM, our Chairman, Monsignor Kevin McGinnell, will deliver the Annual Crichton Memorial Lecture: Quo Vadis? Unfinished Work.  We will close with Mass at 3.30 pm.

The Society is most grateful to the Lisbonian Society for its on-going support of this annual lecture.

We welcome members and friends, old and new, to this Assembly in our 90th Anniversary year.
