Book launch of "Margaret Clitheroe"

A presentation of “Margaret Clitheroe” by the authors, followed by questions, drinks & nibbles

“Margaret Clitheroe” is a fresh look at one of England’s best-loved saints. It includes an overview of England’s transition to Protestantism and Elizabeth’s role in the anti-Catholic movement of the time, as well as a consideration of the various claims to St Margaret’s final resting place.

Join us for a presentation by the authors, an opportunity to ask them questions and complimentary drinks and nibbles!

Books will be on sale at the event or can be purchased direct from the publishers.

Join us @10am on Saturday 31st August for Mass at Stydd Chapel

Stydd Chapel, according to various historians, is considered to be the most likely resting place of St Margaret Clitheroe.

By kind permission of the Revd Canon Brian McConkey, vicar of the Anglican parish in Ribchester, we will celebrate Holy Mass at Stydd Chapel on Saturday morning.

Mass will be followed by a short talk on the history of the chapel.

All are invited to join us on Saturday morning.
