Anglican Catholic Fellowship House Groups (Northern Deanery)

Fr Howard Marsh, Chaplain to the Anglican Catholic Fellowship in the Northern Deanery writes:

"Making the journey by road to Durham City to visit the House Group and its leader Dr. Peter Hurst takes me through some of the finest countryside the North of England has to offer any traveller. The dramatic landscapes of the North Pennines are breathtaking-one seems to be on top of the world and the wide open skies and blue skies on this day brought out all the autumnal colours of the heathers and turning leaves. Quite beautiful.
Dr Hurst was in good spirits and was very optimistic about the future of the House Group there. The inaugural Mass for Durham is yet to be arranged i.e. venue and date.
Moving south from County Durham to Whitby didn't take me as long as I thought it would and once I had negotiated my way through Darlington, I was soon on familiar territory of the North York Moors and making for the coast. The approach to Whitby is spectacular and no matter how many times one sees the view, it is just stunning, and the welcome in Whitby leaves nothing more to wish f or. The Inaugural Mass for the House group here was planned for the following morning-Trinity XXl- at 10.30. Although Mrs Sally Lythe's wrist had still not fully healed after her fall, she was able to play the piano for the hymns which greatly added to the occasion. The House Group here is certainly set the grow,
and I ask for your constant prayers for both these two new House Groups as they find their feet and become stronger and give positive witness to the Catholic Faith in their respective parts of the Diocese."
