The Annual Deanery Conference

"The single most important event in the life of the Deanery”
(Fr John Marks).

The Annual Deanery Conference is a traditional gathering of all the Deanery in order to share its prayer, love, friendship etc.

In the last couple of years it took place in the Pastoral Centre at St Albans. In 2012 it changed its location and moved to High Leigh, Hoddesdon,  Herts.

Appeal for Conference Donations from Fr David

Dear Brothers in Christ,

The Annual Festival and Conference has been a great success  at High Leigh each May. Parish and Community contributions  have been a pivotal reason for this. We have been able to offer a subsidised fee for children, free places  for the very young and the elderly and provide for them all an engaging and stimulating programme. Your contributions have also paid for helpers for the children's programme and assistance with bursaries for all requiring financial help.

Conference / Festival 2017 open for applications

This newsletter comes to you by way of wishing you all a 'Happy New Year!' and announcing that we are now ready to receive your applications to attend our annual Conference and Festival, which this year takes place from the 26th to the 29th May.
