Beloved in Christ,
In response to enquiries, I am sending this update on the three final public events in which Jane and I will be participating. You are your congregations are very welcome and you may care to include this information in pew bulletins.
1. Bishop’s Business Breakfast with guest singer Colin Buchanan – March 20th – see invitation and RSVP details. All very welcome.
2. Bishop’s Walk With The Cross – Good Friday March 30th. ‘Walkers’ to meet at Christ Church, West Goulburn (130 Addison Street) at 10.15am. We depart at 10.30am and make our way via the ‘Cathedral Common’ with a view to arriving in Belmore Park, Goulburn for a very simple open air evangelistic service at 11.30am. The service will conclude by noon. All very welcome.
3. Laying Up Of the Staff Service – Saturday March 31st – St. Saviour’s Cathedral, 11.00am. +Stuart will preach and preside at this relatively low key event (as it is in ‘Vigil’ time). Clergy are invited to sit with their congregations (and Canons and Archdeacons may, if they wish, vest and occupy their stalls). There will be no Procession. The ‘Friends of the Cathedral’ are very kindly providing refreshments in the hall after the service (expected to be about 90 minutes in length). Stuart and Jane will leave the service together and shake hands at the West Door. All very welcome.
