New seminarians!

Today is the first day of the Induction Week for the new seminarians at Oscott, and we are fortunate enough to have 8 starting this year. Two of these are from East Anglia (Simon and Ben), so please keep them in your prayers as they begin their life in Oscott. The other first years are for the dioceses of Northampton, Birmingham, Nottingham, and the Sion community and the Vocationist Fathers based in Holywell. May they all find Oscott a good place in which to discern the Lord's call for them.

God bless you all! You are daily in the Masses and prayers of so many in the Diocese. I hope you will be allowed to venerate the Relics of S.Therese (who whom, with others, I owe my conversion) which, I can assure you, will bring you many graces and favours.

Thanks Fr,

Yes, we'll get to see her at St Chad's in Birmingham, which will be great. Perhaps she'll get to be a missionary after all, and revitalise the faith in England!
