The Dromore Cathedral History Reading group will meet in The Clayton Hall at 7.30 pm on Monday 3 June 2019.
The book for discussion at this meeting will be –
The History of England Volume 3 – Civil War by Peter Ackroyd
The books charts the history of the England during the turbulent 17th century which began with James VI of Scotland becoming the first Stuart King of England and ended with the flight into to exile of his grandson, James II.
Importantly, the book tells of how the Stuart era was scarred by a Civil War and the execution of a King.
All are very welcome to attend.
The Select Vestry are beginning to make plans for a special service in which we hope to gather people with connections with our Cathedral, both past and present, to celebrate our unity in Christ and our friendship in the Gospel. As a friend of Dromore Cathedral, Bishop Moses Zungu from Maridi Diocese, South Sudan, will be our guest preacher and we hope that his wife, Mama Rejoice will be able to join him. But we need your help in gathering together a list of people with links to the Cathedral who we can invite to the service. You could have a son or a daughter who has moved from the area through marriage, but whose faith was formed in the early years of their life in our Cathedral. You could have a brother or sister who moved from Dromore to take up employment in another part of the country, or indeed in another country or continent! Wouldn’t it be wonderful to gather all of these people together in the Cathedral for a celebration service and then special hospitality in the Cathedral Hall immediately afterwards. Can you imagine the conversations which could take place as people reconnect with one another and catch up after perhaps decades!
So we are asking you to please, please think of who we could invite within your family or friendship group, obtain their permission to give us their contact details, pass the details on to the Church Office and then leave the rest to us. This could be the most wonderful occasion, but only if we have your support and encouragement. Please do get the details of your loved ones to the Church Office by the middle of May 2019.
The Select Vestry have conceived of a fundraising idea for Parish funds which is also a great way of showing support for the Cathedral – Lapel Badges. Each badge bears the crest of Dromore and is priced at the modest amount of £3.50. Anyone wishing to purchase a badge should place their name on the list in the Church Porch or contact the Church office.
Badges which have already been ordered can be collected at the Church Porch this Sunday. Thank you.
