 The Stratford-upon-Avon Poetry Mass

Go along and help to spread the word about this Great Thanksgiving, taking place in the context of the Stratford-upon-Avon Poetry Festival on Wednesday 19 June at 7:30pm in the Guild Chapel, Chapel Lane, Stratford-upon-Avon. The service is built around a Eucharistic prayer, but includes poems as prayerful intentions as well.

There's been a Poetry Mass in the Festival since 2005 and this year it seeks to involve appropriate participation from the three Abrahamic faiths through specially selected readings (poetry and scripture).

For more information please see the attached leaflet.
