An inspirational day for all ministers of the world and extraordinary ministers of holy communion in our diocese will be held at Scarborough Spa Conference Centre on Saturday September 9.

The speaker is Kathryn Turner, head of the department for spirituality at the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle, who will reflect on Mary as our model of discipleship and ministry.

“This will be a lovely, prayerful day with the opportunity to reflect on our ministry,” said Deacon Vince Purcell.

“It’s a chance to refresh our ministry by reflecting on the example of Mary, mindful that it’s the day the statue or Our Lady of Fatima arrives in our diocese.

“This diocese is considered a model for others in the formation of its ministers and we hope this inspirational day will bring great benefits to every parish.”

Registration is from 9.30am and the day will end at 3pm after 2pm Mass. Lunch provided and booking will be available in the parishes.
