Field of Dreams: if you build it, they will come!

The John Henry Newman (Bristol Ordinariate) Group held a Quiet Day at the Convent, Nympsfield, on Saturday, attended by seventeen people. After coffee, the day began formally with prayers in the chapel and an address from our Group Chaplain. Then we dispersed to the various comfortable sitting rooms until gathering again in the chapel at 12.30 for the Regina Coeli. After this came a delicious lunch at which conversation was allowed. At 1.30 we met in the chapel again for a further address from the Chaplain, and further silence until 3.45, when we came back to the chapel one more time, for a “semi-sung” Evensong. (That is to say, the versicles and responses and the Office Hymn were sung, but the psalms and canticles were said.) Then, after a final cup of tea and chat, we all headed home. It was a very helpful day, and we hope it will be repeated.

As noted elsewhere, the regular Ordinariate Mass will be at St Joseph’s, Weston-super-Mare, on the second Sunday of each month. However, in July this coincides with the Clifton Diocesan Pilgrimage to Glastonbury, so it was agreed that in July the Group will go to Glastonbury instead of Weston. Details are available in the various parishes.
