Membership of the Church Union brings us into a direct relationship with the many heroes of the Catholic Revival in the Church of England, which started with the Oxford Movement in the 1830’s and 1840’s.
In those days, Catholic Christians in this land were mocked and humiliated and subjected to violence. What impressed the bystander and un committed was the firmness of faith, constancy of purpose and unshakable devotion to our blessed Lord Jesus.
Nothing much has changed today except the mockery and violence has now become indifference and ignorance. So we need a new breed of giants, people who will question those aspects of life which are contrary to God’s will for us as revealed in the Scriptures. We need people who will devote themselves to Jesus Christ through Word and Sacrament and, if necessary, be prepared to suffer for the Faith.
If you can support us in this, we need you as a member of the Church Union.
