15th October 2013 – Autumn Reception

The Society held its Autumn Reception on Tuesday 15th October 2013 in the splendid surroundings of the Throne Room courtesy of His Grace Archbishop Vincent.

This year we had just over 80 members and their friends in attendance. The Autumn Reception has become a regular fixture in the Society of St Augustine of Canterbury’s calendar and offers a marvellous opportunity for members to catch up with what the Society is doing and to meet old friends again.

Our new Chairman, Michael Milbourn, gave a stirring speech outlining his hopes for the Society under his tenure. He thanked members for their continued support of the Society. His Grace spoke of his gratitude for the work the Society does and he shared with us some thoughts on Pope Francis’s papacy and His Holiness’s desire to reach out to those most in need.

The reception ended at 8.30pm.
