Chesterfield Deanery Mass s

On the feast of St Gregory, Bishop Ralph Heskett visited the Annunciation Church, Chesterfield, and celebrated Mass with priests from the Deanery and people from the churches in the Deanery.

In his homily Bishop Ralph gave a brief overview of the life of St Gregory, his sense of mission, administrative skills and his love of music leading to the introduction of the Gregorian chant. Bishop Ralph concluded by asking everyone to pray to St Gregory to intercede for us that like Gregory we may be servants of the Gospel and servants of one another.
