Exploring vocation in Manchester 2013

Scp group-001They came from Newcastle and Herodsfoot (where’s that?), from the Isle of Man and Brighton and more. Nineteen people exploring their vocation to ministry came for a Vocations weekend organised by SCP (the Society of Catholic Priests) and St Chrysostom’s.

Discussion, visits to churches, worship, meals (including curry in Manchester’s curry mile), and lots of encouragement and laughter made a great weekend. We were pleased to be joined by Revd Catherine Williams, the Church of England’s National Vocations Officer, who  also preached at mass on Sunday at St Chrysostom’s.

What did those who came have to say:

Wonderful          Lovely to meet with others on the same journey       Amazing

inspiring and well-organised weekend   It was brilliant

All the stuff that happened was valuable but the beginning of new friendships (and deepening of old ones) is what I’d call my highlight.

Next one, next May!
