The first and second year students in the Diaconal Formation Proramme went on a silent retreat at Worth Abbey this last weekend accompanied by some wives. It was a really great experience; it was a pity it was so wet as this curtailed walking in the grounds, but it did mean that we did more reading! Worth Abbey is a wonderful place; I would urge you all to go and visit.
I am a retired Consulting IT Specialist. I have been married to Julia for 45 years and we are blessed with four children; David, Andrew, Lawrie and Hélèna. Not forgetting the "other half's"; Gaew married to Andrew, Lawrie's partner Emma and Hélèna's husband Sam.
In addition we have a grandson - Henry Thomas, son of Lawrie and Emma. Henry was three in April - time flies
I am now ordained as a Permanent Deacon in the RC Church - date of ordination 8 June 2013 so am now in my third year of ministry.
