The Celebration of St. Hilda’s Day, November 17th

St. Hilda, Abbess of Whitby, was renowned for presiding over the Great Synod of Whitby in 664 AD. She was a lover of God’s Word who encouraged creativity in worship. She is especially remembered for her encouragement of Caedmon, an illiterate cowherd, farm labourer and shepherd who miraculously became England’s first poet and hymn writer, celebrated throughout the land for his songs in praise to God’s creation and His mighty Word.

As a community bearing her name, we will celebrate St. Hilda’s life and relevance to our times, on Sunday November 20. MARK THE DATE!!!

“So My Word that comes from My Mouth will not return to me empty, but it will accomplish what I please and will prosper in what I send it to do.”      Isaiah 55:11
