About us

* St Paul of the Cross prayed for the conversion of England and founded the Passionists, whose Blessed Dominic Barbari greatly influenced Blessed John Henry Newman, and Received him into the Church. The British Province of the Confraternity was founded in direct response to Pope Benedict’s ‘Year for Priests’, his State Visit to Britain, and his Beatification of Blessed John Henry Newman.

In response to Pope Benedict XVI’s ‘Year for Priests’, and on the Memoria of St Paul of the Cross* (19th October 2010), Priests of various southern dioceses, with the good wishes and encouragement of others from elsewhere in Britain, voted unanimously to found the British Province of the Confraternity of Catholic Clergy for the sanctification and support of Priests, and in promotion of authentic Priestly life, holiness and mission by

“Anchor Your Priesthood

in Your Relationship with Christ.”

Pope Francis

“Without the Sacrament of Holy Orders, we would not have the Lord. 

Who put Him there in that tabernacle? The priest. 

Who welcomed your soul at the beginning of your life? The priest. 

Who feeds your soul and gives it strength for its journey? The priest. 

Who will prepare it to appear before God, bathing it one last time in the blood of Jesus Christ? The priest, always the priest. 

And if this soul should happen to die [as a result of sin], who will raise it up, who will restore its calm and peace? Again, the priest. ... 

After God, the priest is everything! ... Only in heaven will he fully realize what he is.” 


Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

Professor Stephen Bullivant


“A former atheist, he studied philosophy and theology at Oxford University, and converted to Catholicism while completing his doctorate on Vatican II and the salvation of unbelievers. In 2010, he was the first non-American to receive the “LaCugna Award for New Scholars” from the Catholic Theological Society of America. Stephen writes and speaks extensively on the theology and sociology of atheism, and the new evangelization.” (Catholic Answers)

From the St Mary’s University website: “Stephen Bullivant is Professor of Theology and the Sociology of Religion. He is Director of the Benedict XVI Centre for Religion and Society. … An award-winning scholar, Prof. Bullivant's research and teaching interests are wide-ranging and interdisciplinary. Most notably, they include several  areas of Catholic theology, and the social-scientific study of religion and atheism/secularity.”

His monographs include: The Trinity: How Not to Be a Heretic (Paulist Press, 2015); Faith and Unbelief (Canterbury Press, 2013; Paulist Press, 2014); The Salvation of Atheists and Catholic Dogmatic Theology (OUP, 2012). His latest book, Mass Exodus: Catholic Disaffiliation in Britain and America since Vatican II, is due for publication at the end of May this year, just in time for his talk.

The talk will begin at the usual time of 11:45am. Please note, however, that for reasons beyond our control there will be no coffee beforehand in St Patrick’s. Please avail yourselves of one of the myriad coffee houses in the area. After the talk, at approximately 1:00pm, we plan to take lunch at Pierre Victoire on Dean Street. If you wish to join us for lunch, please indicate in your reply to this email and I will book accordingly. On this occasion, additional bottles of wine will be bought separately by guests in the interests of justice and peace for our brethren who have taken the Pledge.

“Anchor Your Priesthood

in Your Relationship with Christ.”

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; 

and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.”
