Summer Get Together
Each year in Southwark we have the inside of a week together for seminarians (old and new) and those who may be considering becoming diocesan priests. This year we are going back to the Sacred Heart School in Woldingham which received us so well in the past. The Archbishop will be joining us and I hope that some of the auxiliary bishops may be able to come over too.
It's not a retreat just a time to relax together and get to know each other better. It is very important to build up bonds of fraternity amongst diocesan clergy and these weeks can help us. They are an encouragement to men thinking about priesthood as they meet the seminarians and can ask all the questions they never dare ask anyone else! It is also a good opportunity for our seminarians to get involved with the work of promoting vocations in the diocese.
If you would like to join us for the week please send me an email by clicking here.
This year the summer get-together runs from the evening of Tuesday 10th July until after lunch on Friday 13th.
