with fruitful exchanges on the organisation of Services in the next year.

Ceremony in commemoration of the Jewish victims during the Vichy regime and homage to the "Righteous among the Nations" of France

This is the national day of Remembrance of the Jewish victims of the Vichy regime 
during the nazi occupation of France.
In just two days in July 1942 over thirteen thousand Jews were arrested and detained in Paris 
before being sent to the death camps.

Michelle, our Ecumenical Officer, was officially invited to the ceremony and she read a prayer specially written for the occasion along with representatives of the Caen Jewish community, the local Christian denominations and the Caen Muslim community.

Sacerdotal ordination at St George's, Paris

Saturday July 1st, at St George's Paris, Nicolas was ordained a priest by Bishop David in the presence of many priests among whom Rvd Canon Matthew Harrison (Chaplain of St George's), Father Andrew (his assistant) and Fr Douglas who regularly serve our Caen Chaplaincy.

 An ordination is a great joy for all the Church, especially for us when it happens at St George's which has provided constant pastoral care and support for so long.
Yvonnic, our Reader in training, represented us at the ordination ceremony and at Fr Nicolas' first Mass on Sunday July 2nd.
Best wishes to Nicolas on his new mission from all of us at the Caen Chaplaincy!
