The St John’s Association was founded in 1899, nine years after the opening of St John’s Seminary, Wonersh. Its purpose was to gather together past students who were now priests, to celebrate their time at Wonersh.
Since then the Association has broadened its membership to include those associated in various ways with St John’s, but it has remained a central aim of the Association to build a spirit of unity between the Seminary, the clergy and those who have studied or taught at the Wonersh.
Over the years since it was founded, the Association has also helped the seminary and its students in many practical ways, by providing financial and material help for various projects.
The Association meets once or twice a year to pray with the Seminary community, share a meal and discuss current and future projects. Former students and staff are welcome to attend. Please contact the Secretary.
5th October 2016. Midday Prayer and lunch with the Seminary Community.
Rev John Chandler (Portsmouth) – President
Rev John Edwards (Arundel & Brighton) – Secretary
