Summer Visitors

As usual we have had a lot of visitors to St Wilfrid's and the York Oratory-in-Formation over the summer. Today we welcomed - once again- Fr Norbert Fernandes, Parish Priest of Welwyn Garden City with the Rector of the Seminary of the Archdiocese of Seville with four seminarians.2017-07-24-PHOTO-00000192Over the weekend we had eighty students from the Scuola Media Malpighi in Bologna who came to the 10.30am Mass on Sunday. At the same time we had a chance to say farewell to Rev. Chris Humble the Minister of Central Methodist Church in York who is leaving to take up a new ministry in Weardale.ChrisHumble240x3001
