World Leprosy Day & the World Day of the Sick at St Joseph's, Stokesley

Fr William Charlton, our Chaplain in the North East - Middlesbrough Diocese - is organising an event on the theme of 

“ Mary, Health of the Sick, Comforter of the Afflicted” 


World Leprosy Day & the World Day of the Sick.

A reflection through readings, hymns & motets 
concluding with Solemn Benediction 
St Joseph’s Church
1, Tanton Road, Stokesley, Middlesborough. TS9 5HN 


Sunday 9th February at 4.00pm 


Si iniquitates observaveris-S.Wesley
Alma Redemptoris mater-Palestrina
Tollite hostias-Saint-Saens
Tantum ergo- Deodat de Severac

There will be a retiring collection to support the work of SUROL, the charity of Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith that the Order supports in Sri Lanka, working to rehabilitate those affected by leprosy.

Refreshments will be served in the Hall afterwards.

Obviously, if as many members as possible could join our Grand Prior, HE Anthony Dickinson and our Chaplain General, Fr Simon Henry, that would be most helpful. The event is open to all and as well as some beautiful music and Benediction, it will afford you the chance to see the beautifully remodelled church at Stokesley, which Fr William Charlton has accomplished with great panache.
