A new Seculars group

We started the new Coventry Seculars Group on Saturday last at Christ the King, Coventry. Two of the persons attending were formerly members of a Birmingham Community that collapsed after the Pandemic for various reasons. One of them is actually a parishioner of Christ the King, while the other lives not far from Coventry - and they were both delighted with the new group. Secular groups and communities wax and wane over the years; my own community in Oxford started with only four regular members over 20 years ago, but over the years it grew so large that we divided and gave birth to a new group. Since then the new group has thrived with an intake of younger members while we ourselves have struggled to find new members. The Lord gives and the Lord takes away!
