Open Event: Bishop Sandy Millar of London speaks at Truro on Friday, Oct. 26

Bishop Sandy Millar of London will be speaking at Truro (10520 Main Street, Fairfax, VA) on "How to be filled with the Holy Spirit," on Friday, October 26 (6:30 p.m.) as part of the special Alpha Conference. This Friday night event is free and open to all.

If you have never heard Sandy Millar speak (especially on this topic), I wholeheartedly encourage you that if you are able to come, that you do come. Bishop Millar, while very well known in England (he's the former vicar of Holy Trinity Brompton in London), he may not be as well known on this side of the pond. This is a great opportunity not only to hear his teaching, but also to go deeper in your relationship with God. How are we filled with the Holy Spirit? Come and find out. All are welcome.

The weekend events continue through Saturday and you can still register for the entire Alpha Conference by calling Truro Church at 703-273-1300. But the Friday night event is open to all.

On Sunday, October 28, Tory Baucum will be officially installed by Bishop Martyn Minns (former rector of Truro) at 11:15 a.m. in the Main Church. Bishop Sandy Millar will be preaching. All are welcome to attend! Clergy stole color will be white. A Celebration Reception will follow at 1:00 p.m.

Here is a copy of a letter recently sent to Tory Baucum from P. Raniero Cantalamessa, Preacher to the Papal Household in Rome:

Dear Tory,

I rejoice greatly over your appointment as Rector of Truro Church.

Knowing your dedication to the Lord and your kindness toward people I am sure your congregation will rejoice as well over this appointment. Your friendship with the Catholics, Bishop and people in Lexington greatly impressed me during my recent visit to Asbury Seminary. My fellow Catholics of Washington will soon discover what a friend they have in the Anglican Pastor of Truro.

Two weeks ago I was preaching at Holy Trinity Brompton in London and again I could see what a blessing the Alpha Course is for the whole Church. May the Spirit of the Lord anoint you to bring the good news to everybody.

P. Raniero Cantalamessa
Preacher to the Papal Household

Your prayers for this very special weekend are greatly appreciated!
