Fisher More Feast Day
Monday 22 June is our school feast day and we celebrate the lives and impact of St John Fisher and St Thomas More.
John Fisher was born in 1469; he studied at Cambridge University, was ordained, became Bishop of Rochester. He was a pastoral bishop, charitable to the poor, a man of prayer, and a persistent opponent of the errors of the Protestant Reformation.
Thomas More was born in 1477, studied at Oxford University, married and had one son and three daughters. He became Chancellor of England. His writings include ‘Utopia’ and many prayers and letters which reveal his spirituality.
Both were executed on the orders of King Henry VIII.
Let us pray:
give us the courage to proclaim our faith
by the witness of our lives.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
