You are invited to our Mass for Families at the Shrine. The next Taste and See Mass will be on Sunday 14th June 2015 at the Shrine. Throughout their year we journey with the Church towards the General Synod on the family. The World Congress on the Family in Philadelphia gave us the path to follow. Our Mission is love:Family fully Alive. In the last Family Mass we were given the chance to make our contribution to the discussion questions issued by the Bishop’s Conference of England and Wales about family: the meaning of family for us and the needs of families today. In June we look at Marriage as a Sacrament which is true reflections of the Love of Christ in our family. In the preparation prayer for the World Congress we pray: ‘guide all families, especially those most troubled, to be homes of communion and prayer and to always seek your truth and live in your love. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.’ I look forward to seeing you and your family next Sunday.
Celebrating the month of May this year is going to be an especially memorable occasion for one group of pilgrims. Yet Mary, Lisa, Rachel and Natalie did not have to travel too far before reaching the peace and tranquillity they sought for their pilgrimage in honour of Our Lady.
The prayerful atmosphere of Schoenstatt Shrine, just 25 minutes from the bustling city of Manchester, provided ample calm. “The chapel at Schoenstatt is beautiful both inside and out, and it’s very easy to pray here”, says Natalie, an artist of portraits and landscapes.
However, it wasn’t only the scenic surroundings and the elegant chapel that aided the prayer of this faithful group. Elizabeth, a retired teacher, believes that “going on a pilgrimage with friends helps me to pray more reverently. It’s so encouraging!”
Schoenstatt shrine is open for pilgrims throughout the year.
