Coventry Diocese E-Bulletin

Dear All,

There are three important news stories that I need to bring to your attention, so this week I’m taking the unusual step of sending this extra eBulletin.

Pentecost Beacon Event – this Sunday

Everyone is invited to join the Pentecost celebrations at Coventry Cathedral this coming Sunday, 15 May. It is one of six national ‘Beacon Events’ being promoted by the Archbishop of Canterbury. It’s also the culmination of the 2016 Diocesan Pilgrimage. The event is free and no tickets are necessary.

Refreshments are being served from 4:00 pm within the old cathedral ruins, to which everyone is welcome.  The main event then starts next door at 5:00 pm in the new cathedral.

Admission is free and no tickets are needed. Everyone is welcome.

‘Reimagining Europe’ in Coventry Cathedral – next Thursday

‘Reimagining Europe’ is a conversation taking place between the Bishop of Coventry and Caroline Spelman MP in Coventry Cathedral on Thursday May 19th at 7.30 pm.

As the ‘Reimagining Europe’ website says: the “central aim is to create a space for Christian reflection and debate on Britain’s future relationship with Europe ahead of the forthcoming referendum on whether Britain should remain a member of the EU.”

Admission is free and no tickets are needed. Everyone is welcome.
