Publicity Spot

Two sessions on the subject of Anglicanorum Coetibus have been brought to the WG's attention. Details below. It is heartening indeed that efforts are being made throughout our church to seek to understand the Holy Father's generous offer.

1. Holy Trinity, Reading

Father David Elliott, Priest-in-charge of the Church of the Most Holy Trinity in Reading has set aside an evening for discussion on the subject of the recent Apostolic Constitution issued by the Holy Father. It will be held on Wednesday 20th January at 7.30pm in the Undercroft at HT. Fr David writes that while this is principally for the people at HT, others are more than welcome to come along to explore the future possibilities for different churches.
