FiF Update

Mass at Christ the King

The appointment of Fr John Scott as Honorary Chaplain at Forward in Faith’s Headquarters at Christ the King, Gordon Square, has meant some changes to the weekly cycle of celebrations in the English Chapel. Details are in the Christ the King entry in the Directory elsewhere in this issue of New Directions. We do hope that those of you who have occasion to be in Central London during the week will join us for Mass from time to time. Please note, though, that the English Chapel is closed on both Saturday and Sunday each week.

A Date for your Diaries

The Society of the Holy Cross (SSC) was founded by Charles Lowder on 28th February, 1855. As he reflected on the problems facing both the Church and society, he discerned a need for the clergy to commit themselves to a rule of life, in order to serve the Church better and to further the cause of the Kingdom. Today, the Roll of the Society stands at over 1,000 priests worldwide, of whom about 700 work in these islands.

The Master of SSC, Fr David Houlding, is calling all the brethren of the Society throughout the world together in Synod, for a Theological Conference, culminating in a great public celebration of the Society’s 150th Anniversary in the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday, 9th April, 2005 – a celebration to which we are all invited! More details will follow so, for now, book that date in your diaries and make sure that you are in the Albert Hall for the biggest corporate celebration for our integrity since Christ our Future.
