St Oswald’s Day Celebration – 5th August

As a dispersed network Community, it is not possible for us to gather together under one roof and, indeed, many of those who might usually make the journey to Heavenfield, Northumbria, UK, on August 5th, to remember St Oswald, are not able to do so this year. So instead, we are pleased to offer you some special treasures from our archives. These include:

  • some footage from a Celtic Saints’ Workshop, led by Andy and Anna Raine and the Fleeson family, at St Joseph’s Episcopal Church, Boynton Bay, Florida, in 2018, alongside pictures and video clips from Heavenfield, Northumberland, in 2019;
  • a link to Norma Charlton’s re-telling of the Oswald Story;
  • a special midday prayer filmed at the hermit’s cave, near Heavenfield;
  • a family-friendly version of the Oswald liturgy,
  • a couple of special reflections around some Oswald themes
  • Jim Bailey’s ‘Stand at the Crossroads’ song, first recorded for our Easter Workshop in 2019
  • a wonderful excerpt from the Easter Workshop 2019 which took place at our Mother House – Nether Springs – in which we received a surprise visit from Oswald himself…
