Monasticism and Vocation: Christ our Call 

This year, CR Festival Day will be on Saturday 7 July. It will include the consecration of the new High Altar, marking the end of our celebrations of the Community’s 125th anniversary, and the completion of the renewal of the Community church. We will welcome the Bishop of Wakefield (The Rt Revd Tony Robinson) to preside and preach at Mass, and we will launch our Year for Vocation.

CR Festival Day will be preceded by a reflective study afternoon on Friday 6 July with our Companions. All are welcome to join in with this, particularly if you are interested in exploring becoming a Companion.

Following the CR Festival Day Mass and lunch, there will be a chance to walk the Stations of Vocation, hearing from Brethren and others about vocation, and stimulating discussion as we learn from others. This will form the basis for Stations of Vocation that we hope will go on tour around the country over the course of the year.

More information will be on the Community website (www.mirfield.org.uk) in due course, but please do put the date(s) in your diary, and let others know! We are always pleased to welcome individual guests as well as families, parishes and other groups.

There is a chance to stay with us for the weekend, although places are limited. If you or your group would like to stay, please contact guests@mirfield.org.uk or 01924 483346.

We look forward to seeing you at Mirfield.
