Mirfield monastery

I SHOULD like to set the record straight. Following an article that appeared in the Reporter which mentions the fact the Community of the Resurrection in Mirfield would be hosting weddings performed by the minister of Christ The King.

A photo of the church appeared on the front page of the Reporter. The photo that appeared gave the impression that weddings would be held in what is the Community’s upper church, which is solely for the use of the brothers, guests and retreatants.

Weddings have been agreed but these will take place in the lower church, used by the College of the Resurrection.

The Community’s church is open for prayer where people can experience the peace and silence of a monastic church. Perhaps your reporter would do his readers a kindness by supplying a photo of the lower church where such weddings take place?
