Internovitiate Conference in Hilfield Friary

Sisters and Brothers from various Anglican Communities met at Hilfield Friary to learn about Franciscanism and Creation. They heard presentations from Sr Francisca OSC (Abbess of the Poor Clare Convent in Arkley), Br Clark Berge SSF (Guardian at Hilfield) and were introduced to the beautiful – and unsullied – countryside which surrounds Hilfield by Richard Thornberry (Hilfield Community member). Huge thanks are due to the Hilfield Community for their outstanding hospitality and welcome!

Br Kentigern John SSF – Funeral Mass

Br Kentigern’s Funeral Mass and Burial will be held in Hilfield Friary on Monday 13th May, starting at 12.30.  
All are welcome, however unfortunately, due to prior bookings, we do not have any spare accommodation. 
We are also looking for further photos of Kentigern for the funeral, so if you have any please email: christophermartinssf@franciscans.org.uk
If you have any questions about the funeral please email Suzi on: hilfieldssf@franciscans.org.uk

Update: many people have kindly offered flowers for the service. The Hilfield Community would ask that, instead, donations are sent to the Joseph Weld Hospice where Kentigern spent his last weeks. Donations may be made by clicking here.
