On Saturday 6 July, hundreds of parishioners from our diocese gathered at St Brendan’s College in Bristol to reflect, to celebrate and consider once more what it means for us to be Church at to enjoy and engage in a full Diocesan day.
We were blessed to have Fr. Denis McBride to lead us in reflecting upon our response to the invitation to engage in a deeper relationship with God and the Church.
Fr. Denis is a Redemptorist priest and author who has written extensively on the Gospels. His warm and engaging approach will gave us new insights into how different personalities within the scripture respond to the voice of God. He will help us to reflect on what this means for us. How do we respond to God’s invitation in our own life? This video is available to watch on the right.
A series of workshops were held throughout the day and there were many events of the younger members of our family to enjoy.
The day ended with Mass being celebrated by Bishop Declan.
You can hear a podcast below where Phil Gibbons spoke with several workshop leaders, priests and people who attended the day.
