It has taken some time, but we are now beginning the next sessions of EMHC and Minister of Word formation at local level to coincide with the Bishop’s visitation schedule. The Bishop will be visiting Holy Angels, Hale Barns in February 2017 and we invite any EMHC and Ministers of the Word (MoW) from parishes in the Deanery of South Trafford and Wythenshawe who have not received a diocesan certificate from the previous Diocesan Formation Days, to take part in a morning formation session on Saturday 28 January 2017 at Sacred Heart and St Peter, Floatshall Road, Baguley, M23 1HP from 10 – 1pm (registration from 9:30am).
This certificate will be valid for five years. Ministers may be formally commissioned and presented with their certificates by the Bishop during Mass at Holy Angels, Hale Barns on 11-12 February 2017 if they are able to attend.
Those who are not able to be there can receive their certificates through their respective parishes.
We do encourage appropriate ministers to register. At previous events the non-registration of many did cause some difficulties and although we recognise some may only turn up on the day itself, for catering and health and safety purposes registration is essential.
Please note there are Registration Forms are available in the porch at the back of church. Please sign up as soon as possible, we will be sending completed forms to the Diocese on Monday 23rd January.
Due to the notice above the Readers Day and Eucharistic day to be held at All Saints is cancelled.
