Our Weekly (Zoom) Chapters
We meet weekly (every Friday via Zoom at 11:30am), to pray the Office of Sext together, and to have the appointed chapter from the Holy Rule read out, followed by a brief chapter talk. We then spend some time studying and sharing or simply socialising. We thank God for modern internet technology to make this possible!
The Zoom Chapter on the last Friday of every month is when our postulants and novices meet with our Novice Master for Formation (one or more of the professed brothers may also join these sessions). On the 1st Friday of the month invited Enquirers are also asked to join with the Community.
Our Next Chapter Meeting
Our Chapter Meetings usually take place from Sunday 13:00hrs to the following Wednesday after lunch, and are held at the Convent of St Mary the Virgin in Wantage, Oxfordshire.
Our Holy Cross Chapter, which was planned from the 11th – 14th September 2022 had to be cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, such as the death of her late Majesty the Queen. Br Gilbert had hoped to make his Solemn Life Profession and Fr Robert Eloff was to be clothed as a Novice. Both these events were therefore postponed to later dates (see below).
Our next Chapter will DV take place from 22nd – 25th January 2023. Our Episcopal Visitor hopes to receive the Solemn Life Vows of Br Gilbert on behalf of our Order on Monday 23rd January. More details are to follow.
Fr Robert Eloff hopes to be clothed as a Novice in our Order in Manchester soon. Details are to follow.
In the meantime, please remember Br Gilbert and Fr Robert in your prayers as they prepare for this.
