Priests Conference

Another conference for priests happened in 1976 when Cardinal Hume and 400 priests were present, and in 1977 another was organised for the Diocesan Service teams. It was after this that the Ampleforth Day of Renewal began. In 1978 came the first Ampleforth Conference and the next year a prayer group in Ampleforth College which had attended the Harrogate Days of renewal formed their own conference in one of the Houses in the College.. The participants then came back at Christmas to the Junior House, and were present at Easter.
