Priests gather for Formation, Fidelity & Fraternity
Sunday 6th November 2011

With the encouragement of their Ordinary, Mgr Keith Newton, clergy of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham gathered at The Oratory School in Berkshire this week for a two day colloquium organised by the Confraternity of Catholic Clergy.

Alongside priests from dioceses and Religious Communities, the Ordinariate clergy were made welcome as they met together with brother priests for three conferences: on priesthood, the sacred liturgy, and the development of the Confraternity.

The time together was fuelled by prayerful and dignified liturgy, with daily Mass, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and the opportunity for confessions.

Delegates heard engaging addresses from Bishop Mark Davies (Shrewsbury), Bishop Geoffrey Jarrett (Lismore, Australia), and Mgr Andrew Wadsworth (Executive Director, ICEL).

The Confraternity of Catholic Clergy, which boasts around 150 members since its foundation last year, was founded as a direct response to the State Visit of our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, to the United Kingdom in 2010. It exists in order to support and promote the sanctification of priests through a threefold pattern of Formation, Fidelity, and Fraternity. The next event is to be held at St Mary of the Angels, Bayswater, on Monday 28 November 2011, when Fr John Hemer MHM, from Allen Hall Seminary, will address the subject of The revival of Catholic Scripture scholarship under Benedict XVI.
