Bishop Glyn reflects on the Youth Pilgrimage 2013

Posted on the 14th August 2013 in the Category - News



Bishop Glyn wishes to put on record just how much he enjoyed his first attendance at the Walsingham Youth Pilgrimage. 

 

He writes, “It was great to see so many young people from across the broad spectrum of the Church of England and beyond (there was a big Swedish contingent).  It was a real joy and privilege to worship with so many young people in such a lively way.  I came back greatly refreshed and hugely encouraged by the clear commitment on the part of so many young people, though my feet were rather the worse for wear having walked the Holy Mile barefoot for the first time since I was a teenager! My prayer for the young pilgrims is that as they return home they were likewise refreshed and encouraged to continue their pilgrimage through life as enthusiastic disciples of Christ. 

 

I was enormously grateful to all the leaders for their hard work which undoubtedly contributed to the success of the pilgrimage.  Already I'm looking forward to next year's event and hope that many young people from the Northern Province will join me.”

 

Some young pilgrim’s share their thoughts:

 

The Walsingham Youth Pilgrimage is always a highlight for me, it gives me time away from a busy daily life to reflect on my faith and new ways to explore worship and praise - James Scott, Newcastle Diocese

 

I feel as though the Walsingham Youth Pilgrimage 2013 has developed my belief in the Lord Jesus Christ; I think being amongst other people my age and having the opportunity to share our spiritual beliefs and opinions (as well as having a lot of fun with the brilliant 00 Heaven theme!) has had a positive influence on my life with the church, and I want to share my experiences with others around me and hopefully make them think about coming to the 2014 pilgrimage! - Charlotte Emmerson, Newcastle Diocese

 

Walsingham was amazing, it was a very uplifting experience and I learn a lot :) - Elizabeth Scott, Newcastle Diocese

 

Walsingham Youth Pilgrimage 2013 was a brilliant week, full of fun and enthusiasm; helping me to find a stronger relationship with God. - Jess Sproat, Newcastle Diocese

New Bishop of Ebbsfleet.

Posted on the 2nd August 2013 in the Category - News



I am delighted by the news that Father Jonathan Goodall has been appointed as next Bishop of Ebbsfleet.  I am sure that he will serve in his new role with great distinction, for the good of the Church and the glory of God.

 

I am looking forward to welcoming him into the little team of PEVs.  However, we are part of a bigger team of Catholic Bishops who are seeking to maintain the Catholic tradition within the Church of England.

 

I hope that Fr Jonathan will help us to in our endeavours to continue to maintain an honoured and secure place in the Church of England, in order we may flourish within life and structures of the Church which we love so much, and to which we are solidly committed.

 

I will be praying much for Fr Jonathan as he prepares to take on his new role. I am looking forward to serving with him as a brother Bishop.

Thanksgiving for The Archbishop of York's Health

Posted on the 26th July 2013 in the Category - News



We join with our Archbishop, Margaret, his wife and family in giving thanks to God for the positive news, following his recent visit to his hospital Consultant.  It is indeed excellent news that he does not need further treatment.  However, we do not cease from praying for him, that God will continue to strengthen him, that he will have a good rest during the month of August, AND that in the coming months God will grant him much wisdom in pacing himself in the duties he undertakes.



Walsingham National Youth Pilgrimage 2013

Posted on the 26th July 2013 in the Category - News



On Monday 29 July, hundreds of young people will be heading to Walsingham for this year's Youth Pilgrimage.  Bishop Glyn, who is joining the pilgrimage this year, is very much looking forward to meeting the young people from his parishes.  He writes, “we pray for safe  travelling, then that all may have a great time, worshipping, learning, being with their friends - old and new.  We pray that they will really enjoy themselves, and be inspired by Mary to give their hearts to Jesus.  Pray also for all those organising and leading the Pilgrimage, and for the good weather to continue.......!”
