A Message from Bishop Martyn Jarrett

Posted on the 18th Dec 2018 in the Category - Announcements


This coming year will mark two significant anniversaries for me:


February 2nd will be the Silver Jubilee of my Episcopal Ordination.

June 1st will be the Golden Anniversary of my Ordination as a Priest.


The celebration of the Silver Jubilee will be marked on Friday 1st February at 7.00pm when Worksop Priory anticipates Candlemas with a Solemn Mass at which I will preside and the preacher will be Bishop Christopher Hill.  Many, of course, will be joining in the Candlemas celebrations in their own parishes but if any are free and would like to come and join us in marking this anniversary, I would be delighted to have you join us.


On Saturday 1st June at 12 noon, I will preside at a Solemn Mass in Worksop Priory in thanksgiving for blessings received across the fifty years of Priestly Ministry. The preacher will be the Bishop of Fulham. I would again be delighted to have you join us.  Further details will be published nearer the time.


It would greatly help if I had some indication of numbers in order to cater appropriately at the reception to follow.  Brother Priests of The Society of S Wilfrid and S Hilda are invited to concelebrate.

Bishop of Sheffield: Peter Wilcox

Posted on the 7th Apr 2017 in the Category - Announcements

Following today’s announcement that The Very Reverend Pete Wilcox is to be the next Bishop of Sheffield, Bishop Glyn assures Dean Pete, his wife Catherine, and the Diocese of his prayers. Bishop Glyn will be particularly praying for Pete as he prepares to come to Sheffield at what is obviously an important and sensitive time in the life of the Diocese.


As an Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of Liverpool, Bishop Glyn has first-hand experience of serving alongside Pete as the Dean of Liverpool. He believes that Pete has the right personality and appropriate gifts to bring calm, peace, and reconciliation to the Diocese and to oversee its ongoing life and mission. In the meantime Bishop Glyn continues to pray for the Sheffield Diocese, praying especially for Bishop Peter Burrows as he continues to hold its life within his episcopal care.


Canon Ray Bridson, the Bishop of Beverley's representative in the Diocese of Liverpool and the organiser of the Walsingham Festivals at Liverpool Cathedral, said:

"Liverpool Diocese has benefited greatly from Pete Wilcox's ministry as Dean of our cathedral.  I'm personally grateful to him for the encouragement and support we received in the organisation and preparation for the Walsingham Festival last year and for the sincerity and warmth of welcome extended to all the pilgrims on the day.  I have no doubt in his ability to strengthen the mission of the Church in Sheffield and of his commitment to the Mutual Flourishing of all traditions within the Church of England.  I assure Pete and Catherine of our continued prayers both for them and the Diocese of Sheffield."
