Once I was a clever boy learning the arts of Oxford... is a quotation from the verses written by Bishop Richard Fleming (c.1385-1431) for his tomb in Lincoln Cathedral. Fleming, the founder of Lincoln College in Oxford, is the subject of my research for a D. Phil., and, like me, a son of the West Riding. I have remarked in the past that I have a deeply meaningful on-going relationship with a dead fifteenth century bishop... it was Fleming who, in effect, enabled me to come to Oxford and to learn its arts, and for that I am immensely grateful.

Ordinariate Epiphany Carol Service - January 10

Advance notice of a forthcoming event from the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham in the New Year:
A festival of carols and readings for the Epiphany of the Lord will be held on Thursday 10 January 2013 at the church of St Mary, Cadogan Street, London  (Nearest Tube station: Sloane Square) at 7pm. The celebration will mark the second anniversary of the establishment of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham and is being organised and hosted by the Friends of the Ordinariate.

Music at the service will be provided by the Schola Cantorum of the Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School, and readings will be taken from sacred scripture and the newly published Customary.

The Friends  are particularly pleased to welcome the Duke of Norfolk and a number of Catholic authors and journalists, who will read at the service. 

A special invitation is extended to those who are not members of the Ordinariate, but who wish to contribute to, and support, our life and mission in a particular way.
