Covenant Mass Monday 18th September 2017


by Fr. Bryan Cunningham on 14/09/2017

Welcome to our Covenant Mass on Monday 18th September 2017 at 7.30pm at the Shrine. This celebration will be our final before we crown Our Lady on October 1st this year. We see each one of us as a jewel in the crown of our Lady – ‘you are precious in my eyes’. We crown Mary our Queen so that she will care for us and we can unite ourselves with her in pursuing her share in the interests of her Son, namely building God’s Kingdom and welcoming all to find their way to the heart of the Father. We want to become missionary disciples of the covenant of love, reaching out to many so that each may find their way home to the Father. Mary is invited to be queen of our homes and our families.

In 1968 Father Kentenich, the founder of Schoenstatt died  in the sacristy just after saying Mass in the church of the Blessed Trinity in Schoenstatt. During this coming year we want to look at how Father Kentenich wanted us to be apostles for our time, instruments in Mary’s hands, wining the world for Christ. Our women’s group are preparing the Mass. We look forward to seeing you.

Taste and See Family Mass in June


by Fr. Bryan Cunningham on 06/06/2017

Welcome to our family Mass, Taste and See at the Shrine at 3.30pm on Sunday 11th June, Trinity Sunday.  Since we last got together the terrible events in Manchester Arena and in London have happened. The wonderful response highlighted with the Areana Concert in Old Trafford show the spirit and determination of our people. We remember with sadness the loss and pray in hope. It makes us feel all the more what is important to us , our family and the security to live our family life in joy, peace and love. After Mass we will have a ‘potluck meal’; what we share is what is on the menu. You are invited to bring a donation for our food and clothing bank for the homeless and the needy. See you at the Shrine

Covenant Mass in May Thursday, 18th May at 7.30pm


by Fr. Bryan Cunningham on 17/05/2017

Tomorrow is our Covenant Mass celebration and you are invited. Deepening our Covenant of Love means to see one another in our greatness. Pope Francis says in his letter on the joy of love in the family: The love of friendship is called “charity” when it perceives and esteems the “great worth” of another person. Beauty – that “great worth” which is other than physical or psychological appeal – enables us to appreciate the sacredness of a person, without feeling the need to possess it. In a consumerist society, the sense of beauty is impoverished and so joy fades.

Our Joy is knowing we belong to the family of God and help built a home in which love is at the heart. Please come along and join us for Mass at 7.30pm on Thursday 18th May at 7.30pm. Please bring donations for our food bank.
