Darlington Ordinariate celebrates its 20th reception
Monday 2nd February 2015

The Darlington Ordinariate Group has received into full communion with the Catholic Church its 20th new member since the group itself entered full communion in Holy Week of 2012.

Christopher John Jackson (aged 23), a Merchant Seaman from North Shields, was received and confirmed by Father Ian Grieves, pastor of the Darlington group, on Sunday 1 February at St Osmund's Catholic Church, Gainford.

The choir sang Mozart's Missa brevis in D major for the Solemn Mass, which was followed by a parish lunch for 70 in the village hall. After that there was Solemn Evensong and Benediction with music by Ayleward, Brewer, Nicholson, Mathias and Allegri .

The Darlington choir are rehearsing Masses by Mozart, Haydn, Byrd and Palestrina which they will sing in the churches of St Paul Outside the Walls, St Mary Major and St Peter's during a thanksgiving pilgrimage they are making to  Rome during Eastertide 2015.

The choir is currently appealing for funds to help nine of its young singers to join the pilgrimage, which Fr Grieves says: "will help to draw the young - the lifeblood and future of the Ordinariate - into the life of the Church".

Please support it if you are able! More information and how to donate from:

The full programme for the pilgrimage can be found on the Darlington Ordinariate Group's website. CLICK HERE
