Service of Thanksgiving

There is a French speaking group led by Yvonnic, our Reader in training, engaged in a path of study and meditation of the "Notre Père" prayer.

After the summer break, we wanted to resume our meetings with a Service of Thanksgiving for the gifts of Grace received and especially the birth of a new baby to a couple among us.

This was a wonderful Service overseen by Fr Douglas in which the family dimension of the Church was profoundly felt and experienced.

We meet about every month and have already planned to carry on with studying the Credo once we've gone through the "Notre Père"!

Ecumenical Vespers and Sung Eucharist

As now traditional, we had Sung Ecumenical Vespers at Abbaye aux Dames at the invitation of our Roman Catholic partners and friends on Saturday
with the always much appreciated participation of
St George's Choir led by Peter Hicks.

The following morning at La Miséricorde chapel 
the choir offered Sung Eucharist 
with Father Robert Lloyd Richards as celebrant. 
Père Laurent Berthout, Curate of Caen city centre Ste Trinité parish, an anglophone and anglophile, gave the sermon in English.

We have been privileged with excellent ecumenical relations with the Bayeux-Lisieux RC Diocese for a very long time, which has allowed the building of long lasting friendship and continuing dialogue and cooperation.

Fr Matthew's last Service in Caen

Auld Lang Syne, Father Matthew
Last Sunday's Service was filled with emotion as the Chaplaincy bid farewell to Revd. Canon Matthew Harrison, who celebrated the Eucharist for the last time in Caen before returning shortly to the UK.

The traditional fellowship over tea after each Service was enhanced by champagne
and a delicious buffet prepared by the ladies to express
our profound gratitude to Father Matthew for his outstanding support
and dedication to our Chaplaincy over so many years.

All our best wishes accompany you, Matthew, as you pursue your life and Ministry.

Wedding ceremony at our Chaplaincy :-)

We had a wedding ceremony at our Chaplaincy.

This extra ordinary event was a source of great joy!

The Chapel was beautifully flowered on the occasion.

Everybody gave a hand to make this day a full success. 

Our beloved Fr Varty came back from England especially to celebrate the wedding.
And many thanks to M. Cornilliet for 
his wonderful contribution at the organ.

Women's World Day of Prayer in Caen

The Women's World Day of Prayer
takes place every year on the first Friday in March.
(click here for more information)

 It is an ecumenical celebration of our shared faith and common humanity.
Each year it is prepared by the women of a different country,
who tell their story and ask for our prayers;

  this year the women of Surinam spoke of the beauty of God’s creation
and the need for us all to enjoy and protect it. 

The celebration took place in the Temple of Église Protestante Unie in Caen 
and the Chaplaincy was represented by Marion Clarke and Christine Harris who took part.
