Welcome to our Pilgrim Mother Rally starting at 1.30pm on Sunday 6th May 2012 at the Schoenstatt Centre, St Jon Fisher’s Kearsley. Please find the letter of Fr. David inviting you below:
Wow! A nice long title but a noble one, don’t you think!
Some of you may have read either in the April edition of the MTA magazine or on the Internet Website of Schoenstatt www.schoenstatt.org.uk of the visit to us in England of a large replica of the Pilgrim Mother. The very original large Pilgrim Mother started out with John (João) Pozzobon of Brazil in the early 1950s and is still in that country.
The large replica Pilgrim Mother coming to us will be with us for the months of May and June before being returned to Schoenstatt in Germany. While it is here in England it is to be kept in safekeeping in our Shrine here in Kearsley, Bolton.
For us to Welcome this special Pilgrim Mother amongst us we intend to have a Rally Day on SUNDAY 6th MAY here at our Pastoral Centre beginning at 1.30 p.m A Programme of Welcome, Information and Planning for the future, Adoration with prayer, and Re-commissioning of yourselves as Co-ordinators and of course refreshments will be offered concluding at approximately 4 to 4.30 p.m.
On 8th September this year this Pilgrim Mother on return to Schoenstatt, Germany will be crowned by representatives of all the European Pilgrim Mother Coordinators and Prayer Circles; but more about this and other matters at our Rally.
May I request that you make a determined effort to attend not just as a Co-ordinator but with as far as possible members of your Prayer Circle….. and of course bring along your own Pilgrim Mother. Nearer the time would you kindly take the initiative to indicate you intend to come; this helps with catering. Trusting that the joy of Easter will remain with you in these days;
With Blessings from the ‘Shrine our home’.
