Christian Unity at the Seminary

This evening we hosted a prayer service organised by the local Churches Together committee. It was a lovely service well attended by members of the local churches and their priests and ministers. The local Parish Priest led the service, a few of the students came to welcome the locals and our Spiritual Director gave a short reflection on the history of the Octave of Prayer for Christian Unity. Afterwards we shared some refreshments and the Seminarians chatted with our guests explaining what goes on here, how long it takes, why it takes so long etc. Our thanks go out to those who organised the event and we hope to be able to host other such services in the future.
