September Training Day in St James' Spanish Place

Another successful day training about a dozen servers with four instructors: a good number. St James' Spanish Place is ideal for us because of its many side altars.

Enrollments on the Walsingham Pilgrimage

IMG_5094

 As happened at the last LMS Walking Pilgrimage to Walsingham in 2019, some of the servers among the pilgrims were enrolled in the Society of St Tarcisius during the pilgrimage itself. The ceremony took place in less than ideal circumstances, after sunset, but we managed!

Among the four enrolled was Charles Bradshaw, the Master of Ceremonies of the Pilgrimage, as a Grand MC.

March training day in St James

IMG_1486

We held our training day on 14th March, which now seems a very long time ago. Numbers, at ten student and four instructors, were only slightly down on our usual expectations, and much useful work was done. Two new members were enrolled by Fr Michael Cullinan.

St James' Spanish Place proved an excellent venue for a Society of St Tarcisius Server Training Day. Our January event attracted about 20 students, who were looked after by five instructors. We enrolled two new members and had a couple of promotions as well.

They include two groups who attended together, one from St Anne Line in South Woodford, and one from Our Lady and the English Martyrs, Cambridge.

We now have 73 members and postulants!

Nine new members were enrolled. We are very grateful to the six instructors who assisted us on the day. We hope to find a church for future events with a larger number of altars!
