Diocese Looks Forward to Festival 50 on 5th July - More than 10,000 set to attend
The Bishop of the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton, Rt Rev Richard Moth extends an invitation to all people in Surrey and Sussex to attend Festival 50 on Sunday 5th July at the Amex Stadium and Conference Centre in Brighton.
Festival 50 is an opportunity not just for the Diocese to celebrate its Golden Jubilee, but also for Bishop Richard to meet the people of his new Diocese, following his installation as the new Bishop on 28 May this year.
Bishop Richard says: “Festival 50 on 5th July this year will be an important event in the history of the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton. I hope and pray that many of the people of the Diocese will be inspired to participate in the day, especially those who are sick and infirm. I invite you all to join me at the Festival for Morning Prayer at 10am and for the Jubilee Mass at 3pm.”
There are already some 10,000 people coming for the day, but there is room to welcome many more at the 30,000 seater Amex Stadium. It will be a wonderful day of faith, fun and friendship.

May she rest in peace.
