CCC Colloquium: 2012
One of the high points of last year for me was the first Colloquium of the Confraternity Catholic Clergy in Reading, we had about 60 priests turn up, with some really excellent talks from Bishop Mark Davies and Mgr Andrew Wadsworth. The rather impressive Bishop Geoffrey Jarrett, from Australia also attended.
This year's Colloquium promises to be even better, I understand our Nuncio had wanted to come but the was a clash of dates, but Archbishop Augustine Di Noia from the CDW and the newly ordained Bishop Philip Egan of Portsmouth is coming to speak.
If you are a member of the Confraternity book here. The dates are 23/24th October. If you are a priest and your not a member, join: its only £20 and the cost of the Colloquium is £40.
Over the last year the Confraternity has been steadily growing so it is expected that the numbers this year should go up to about 100, for the most part the younger clergy of England and Wales.
