Two Events: Arkley & St Mary’s University, Twickenham

Here are notices of two upcoming events.

On 6th May the Arkley Day of Recollection this Spring will be led by Fr Jesmond Pawley ofm Conv, on the theme of “Jesus Christ for St Francis”. These Arkley Days of Recollection are generally well supported by members from the London and the East Anglian regions. They are open to all, and so may well interest members from other regions: the South East and Southern regions in particular. It would also be convenient for members of the Oxford fraternity. If you are interested please do notify Ursula Mott: details on the flyer below.

Then on the following weekend St Mary’s University, Twickenham are hosting a one day conference “Rediscovering the Roots of Franciscan Spirituality”. The conference celebrates the arrival at St Mary’s of the library from the Franciscan Studies Centre at Canterbury, “the world-renowned Franciscan Studies Collection, believed to be the largest collection related to Franciscanism in Northern Europe.” Speakers include Tom Herbst ofm,  Chris Dyczek ofm, and Sr Patricia Rumsey (Sr Francisca from the Arkley Poor Clares). For details see flyer below.
