Silver Jubilee Celebrations

In the autumn of 2019 we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the formation of the Society of Catholic Priest. 

Over the last 25 years, our Society has grown to support clergy all over the world in nurturing an inclusive priestly spirituality and Catholic evangelism. To give thanks for all that has been and to help us embrace all that is to come, we are planning a number of events to which members and supporters are warmly invited. This page will be updated regularly with news of the various events to mark our anniversary.


Silver Jubilee Day of Thanksgiving

Thursday 12 September 2019 | Southwark cathedral


All clergy members, parishioners, supporters and friends are warmly invited to join the various events on our Day of Thanksgiving at the glorious Southwark Cathedral. The President and Principle Celebrants at the Eucharist will be a number of Bishops who support the work of our Society and we have an excellent lineup of guest preachers. We hope that members will arrange to meet for a meal on evening of 11th or 12th September. Details of overnight accommodation will be made available soon.
