Confraternity of Catholic Clergy Meeting. Why not come along?

 Guest speaker, Canon Olivier Meney, acting as Deacon at the Throne (on the left of the picture) for Bishop Mark Davies

I reminder to any clergy who would like to come - members or not - that St Catherine's will be hosting the next meeting of the Northern Chapter of the British Confraternity of Catholic Clergy  this coming Thursday May 10th.  The speaker will be Canon Olivier Meney, of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign High Priest, from the new shrine in New Brighton; recently opened by Bishop Mark Davies . 
It should be very interesting to hear his experience of getting this going and what challenges he faces. 
The plan for the day will be: 

11.00am arrive/coffee etc.
11.30am Canon Meney to speak, questions and discussion
1.00pm lunch
3.00pm Holy Hour
4.00pm end with Benediction.

The address of the church is: St. Catherine Laboure, Stanifield Lane, Farington, Leyland (nr. Preston) PR25 4QG. Tel 01772 421174. The church is very conveniently just off the M6 between junctions 28 and 29 (29 is the junction with the M65). Leyland station is just short of half a mile down the road, and Preston station 3.5 miles.

Lunch will be at Farington Lodge, a short walk next door from the church:
 No, sadly not the presbytery 
but Farington Lodge next door 
where we will be taking lunch.
Any clergy can come along.  Please contact (as soon as you can) Fr. Stephen Brown
Catholic Chaplain
