Visiting churches in Trafford, Pendleton, Cheetham and Longsight, curry in Rusholme, Benediction at St Chrysostoms, discussing cartoons of the Mothers Union… all were part of an SCP (Society of Catholic Priests) Vocations Weekend based in Manchester, and staffed from St Chrysostom’s.
We welcomed people from Headingly, Gosport, London, Whittingham, Eastbourne and other places in England and Wales, who are exploring how God is calling them. Over the weekend they had opportunity to make friends, share ideas, and meet priests in their different parishes.
On Sunday they attended Mass at St Chrysostoms, and over lunch met the DDO, Fr David Sharples SCP, and Bishop Mark. The weekend closed with prayer and Benediction.
