Diocese of Chichester

Parishes in East and West Sussex have been provided with a range of materials and encouraged to celebrate God’s calling in different ways to people of all ages.

A highlight of the year is the launch of a new initiative to award lay people’s long standing service to their church. The ‘Order of St Richard’ will be presented to nominated lay people at a special ceremony.

Baptism, confirmation and ordination will play a key part in celebrations as the Diocese encourages everyone to reflect on God’s unique calling to them and what it means in their everyday lives.
