The Society is launched in Southwell and Nottingham

The Mission Society of St Wilfrid and St Hilda was officially launched in the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham on Monday 30 January 2012, after Evensong in the Minster. Many members of the Society were present, along with Bishop Paul Butler (the Bishop of Southwell and Nottingham), Bishop Martyn Jarrett and Reverend Mother and the Sisters of the Community of the Holy Cross. Fr Nicolas Spicer, Vicar of Worksop Priory, welcomed everyone to the Minster on behalf of the Cathedral staff and introduced our episcopal guests. Both Bishops spoke encouragingly about the Society and about how it was hoped that the Society would help to maintain the diversity which has always marked the Church of England. As with any good Catholic meeting, the wine flowed in abundance. Grateful thanks are offered to all at the Cathedral and beyond who helped to make the evening a memorable one.
