Diocese of Hexham & Newcastle Guild of St Stephen

The Process of Affiliating your Parish.

The process is quite straight forward, but can be a little time consuming as the application form needs to be signed by several people:

  1. The form will be signed by your Parish Priest, requesting permission to establish The Guild.
  2. This will be sent to the Diocesan Director to sign.
  3. The form will then be sent to His Grace Vincent Nichols, asking him to authorize the establishment of the Guild.
  4. A certificate will then be sent back to your Parish.

As soon as Archbishop Nichols signs your application form you may start to enrol your servers into The Guild.
