The third Sunday of Advent was very rich in ecumenical events in Caen.
RC Bishop Jean-Claude Boulanger
had invited the representatives of the Christian Communities
to join him in the celebration of the
Reception of the Peace Light from Bethlehem
in St Jean church (Caen city centre).
This religious event, organised by the Scouts de France movement
has been a tradition for many years but this year it took on a special ecumenical flavour.
Our Anglican Chaplaincy in Caen was represented by Yvonnic,
our Reader in training.
Then the Peace Light from Bethlehem was carried in during a procession at the beginning of our Carol Service in the Chapelle de La Miséricorde led by Fr Matthew Harrison
and accompanied by the excellent Choir of St George's -Paris-
led by our dear friend Choir Master Peter Hicks.
Readings were done by Père Berthout (Head priest of Paroisse de la Sainte Trinité - Caen city centre) and Pasteur Nyangono (of the Eglise Protestante Unie de France) with whom we have a long standing fraternal relationship.

We are all very happy to welcome Fr Douglas Emmott who has kindly offered to join in our Chaplaincy family's life.
Fr Douglas presided the Eucharist for us for the first time and this was followed by a friendly light meal at the nearby crêperie. An excellent time of Christian fellowship indeed!
Bienvenue en Normandie Father Douglas!

Bishop Robert and Bishop David have addressed a pastoral letter to all the Anglican communities in the Diocese in Europe and asked that it be read during the Sunday Service.
You can read the whole letter by clicking HERE.
We have had English-speaking chaplaincies on the European mainland for over 400 years. That
is not going to change, and the Church of England remains fully committed to this her Diocese
We exhort you all to pray. Pray for political leaders across Europe as they seek to maintain
European cohesiveness. Pray that the UK may be a generous and outward looking country that
contributes to human flourishing around the world. Pray also for church leaders that we may
enable the Christian family to model that harmony and unity which is the vision of God’s
kingdom, in the midst of a fractured world.
Faith is the powerful antidote to fear and uncertainty. As Christians, we believe in a God who
holds the destiny of the nations in his hands. So at an uncertain time in Europe’s history, we
pray for and invoke the providential guiding and leading of God in the hearts of us all and upon
