Supporting the work of the Society in the Diocese of Peterborough
Welcome to Forward in Faith in the Diocese of Peterborough
Welcome to the web site for the Peterborough diocesan branch of Forward In Faith. We exist to support the Society of St Wilfrid & St Hilda in upholding and expressing the Catholic faith in the Church of England, and encourage men and women of all ages who value that inheritance to join us. But you certainly don't have to be a member of FiF to come to a service or an event sponsored by the Society - everyone is welcome.
We value tradition but are forward-looking and seek to be a good model for generous disagreement within the Church. We hold fast to the faith once delivered to the saints and received by the Universal Church while reaching out to other Christians of differing convictions and seeking ways of mutual cooperation wherever they may be found. Don't hesitate to get in touch on any aspect of our witness.
Members will recall the death of Canon Roger Bellamy earlier this summer after many years ministry at King's Sutton.
Sad to say there is already a campaign being mounted to rescind the resolutions.
The PCC meets in less than a fortnight to vote.
Please pray for those of its members who are staunchly and sensitively defending the Catholic faith, as well as for the good offices of Bishop Norman and Fr Oliver.
May it be a test case for the good working of the Five Guiding principles.
