Life Profession in Alnmouth

On Friday 28th July Br Joseph Emmanuel made his Life Profession in the Society of St Francis which was accepted on behalf of the Church by the Bishop Protector (Bishop Stephen Cottrell). Sister Helen Julian CSF preached at the Mass and Br Joe was joined by people from many different stages in his life.

Alnmouth Friary – Retreat bookings

Alnmouth Friary is now entirely full for the year 2017 and therefore we can not accept any more bookings. There are, however, plenty of spaces in 2018!

Franciscans at Greenbelt!

Br Hugh writes:

For over twenty-five years Franciscans have been attending the Greenbelt Festival and praying the Four Offices in our tent Chapel. We will be there this year too and look forward to welcoming people to pray with us. In addition to there being Franciscans of both First and Third Orders we will be joined by Sisters from other Anglican Religious Communities.

Our contribution as Franciscans is a small part of this four day multi-arts inter-generational festival. I’m looking forward to a feast of extraordinarily good talks, drama, art, music, culture on the 2017 theme ‘the common good.’ If you’ve never been it’s an amazing experience and more information can be found by clicking here. Please pray for good weather!
