As we enter our fifth year the Archbishop of Wales this afternoon admitted three Lay Members of the Holywell Community. We welcomed back Brs Josh & Seb and welcomed Br Nicolas. Also present was Nathaniel who will join us as Concentor in the New Year.
During the service the Prior read a portion of the Rule of St Benedict, before the Lay members were presented with a copy of the Rule.
“First of all, every time you begin a good work you should pray to Him with total commitment to bring it to perfection, so that He who has already been kind enough to count us as His sons will never be disappointed by our doing wrong.”
The Archbishop blessed and then presented Pectoral crosses to each Lay Member, while Nathaniel acted as Sub Deacon and Book bearer.
