Spring Gatherings 2016

"Rich in Mercy"
In the Jubilee Year of Divine Mercy which began on December 8th 2015, the Society of Saint Gregory is holding a series of study days with talks, reflections and workshops.

There will be a particular focus on the message of Pope Francis for this extraordinary Jubilee Year. He tells us that “in Him there is mercy and not condemnation.” We are encouraged to ‘Be merciful, as your Father is merciful.” Luke 6:36

All are welcome, whether members or not, particularly anyone involved in parish ministry, or wishing to reflect on what the Jubilee Year means for parishes.

The cost is £10 per person to include lunch. You can book online by clicking here or if you prefer you can print out a booking form and post it to us.  Further information is available by emailing Mary Rouse.  Places should be booked no later than 7 days before the event to assist with catering.
