The SVP Birmingham Central Council, in conjunction with Archbishop Bernard Longley and Mgr Tim Menezes, Dean of St Chad's Cathedral, invites members to its Festival Mass and Gathering on Saturday 24 September 2022.

It is hoped as many SVP members as possible will attend in-person from across the Archdiocese. The Mass will be live streamed for those joining remotely.

Archbishop Bernard will celebrate Mass at 12noon. Monsignor Tim will concelebrate, together with any priests wishing to take part.

There will be an opportunity during Mass for SVP members to renew their SVP promises.

The 24th September is the Feast of Our Lady of Walsingham and Mass for this feast will be celebrated.

A light buffet lunch will follow, and then a talk by the incoming SVP National President, Elaine Heyworth, who will speak about her SVP journey and take part in a question-and-answer session.

The SVP within the Archdiocese is featured in the current edition of The Sower magazine. The article can be found on p16.
