First Covenant Mass in Lent


by Fr. Bryan Cunningham on 17/02/2018

Dear Friends this year we have two Covenant Masses in Lent – maybe like a ‘blue moon’. We could take the lenten resolution to attend both this year. You are welcome to join us tomorrow night, Sunday 18th February at 7.30pm. Our University Students are preparing the Mass and St Edmund’s group will play for Mass. In his Lenten Message this year Pope Francis reminds us of a Word from St Matthew: “Because of the increase of iniquity, the love of many will grow cold” (Mt 24:12). He goes on to explain “In his description of hell, Dante Alighieri pictures the devil seated on a throne of ice, in frozen and loveless isolation.  We might well ask ourselves how it happens that charity can turn cold within us.  What are the signs that indicate that our love is beginning to cool?” Perhaps our Lenten Journey as missionary apostles of the Covenant of Love can be to bring warmth into the lives of those feeling cold and to ask the Holy Spirit to reach out to those whose heart is in danger of freezing over. Please come along and bring family and friends with you. We will also collect donations for our clothes and food bank

Taste and See Family Mass in February


by Fr. Bryan Cunningham on 07/02/2018

You are invited with family and friends to Taste and See Family Mass of the year at the Shrine on Sunday 11th February 2018 starting with Mass at 3.30pm and followed by a shared meal and time to chat. One book about Father Kentenich calls him ‘Mary’s Prophet’. His charism was to raise our  awareness of the special role Our Lady plays in God’s entire plan of salvation. As Mother of the Lord Mary shows us the way to follow her Son closely. And Mary is closest to him on his journey and always there to assist him in his mission to win the world for the Father.  Please also bring a donation for our food and clothes bank. Thank you.  Looking forward to seeing you next Sunday
