Ryan Finnegan 26/02/16  Retreat in Daily Life

There will be another Retreat in Daily Life running from Sunday 3 April till Sunday 15 May, when each participant has the opportunity to meet with a prayer guide once a week for 40-50 minutes.

Each participant agrees to spend at least 20 minutes every day in some form of prayer, usually discussed with the prayer guide in the weekly meeting. It will take place at St Andrew’s Church Shottery, from 6:30pm till 9pm, but hopefully it will be possible to offer prayer guides within reasonable travelling distance of those taking part.

For more information please call Mary Crameri on 01789 296 650 or email her using the link below.

Graeme Pringle 24/02/16  Exploring Christian vocation

Diocesan Vocations Adviser, the Rev’d Ellie Clack has been getting to know the diocesan and national picture when it comes to vocation, especially to ordained ministry. A particular focus in her work is looking at younger people and ministry. During the last few years there has been an increase in numbers of ordination candidates under the age of 30 – although numbers still remain relatively low.
