On Saturday, 11 June members of Sheffield Lay Carmel participated in their Holy Year of Mercy pilgrimage to St Marie’s Cathedral. The jubilee Mass included the Flos Carmeli antiphon provided by the sisters at Kirkedge Convent.
Refreshments followed in the Houlden Hall, and a Holy Hour ending with Benediction led by Deacon Bill Burleigh. He spoke movingly of the Carmel relevance in the life of the local church, and the mission into a deeper appreciation of mercy, as envisaged by Pope Francis in this Year of Mercy.
