Springtime Comes to Lima

Some of the 280 children of the Centro Estudiantil of Christ the Redeemer Church, Lima, took part in a celebration on the first day of spring. The event was very popular with parents and a group of the children presented dances and a fancy dress parade.

Bishop's Visit to St Petroc's Bodmin

Following his retreat in London the Bishop paid a whistle-stop visit to Bodmin and St Petroc's Parish Church. He was greeted by Fr Graham, the Rector, and of course Fr Matt. In the photo they are shown with their Peruvian stoles - Fr Matt's stole was made by the Arpillera's Group of the Diocese in Lima.

Retreat at Nashotah House Seminary

The Bishop is leading a retreat for 65 seminarians and members of staff of the Nashotah House Seminary in Wisconsin, USA. The retreat begins on Monday evening (2nd October) and finishes on Thursday.
The seminary, which began in the mid 19th century, was one of the most significant mission agencies of its time, planting churches in many parts of the mid-west. Now, once more, it is putting strong emphasis on mission.
The photo shows the two oldest buildings of the seminary: the blue one was the accomodation and classroom block and a year later the chapel (pink building) was added.
It is hoped that the seminary will establish links with the two seminaries in the Diocese of Peru
