Today is Schoenstatt’s ‘birthday’, 18th October 1914. Tonight we celebrate our covenant Mass at the Shrine starting at 7.30pm with a procession to the Shrine and the renewal of out Covenant. Each of us is called to be an Apostle of the Covenant bringing the good news of our love of Mary and that the Mother of God and our mother leads us to Christ. We want to explore what are the virtues of a missionary disciple of the Covenant of LOVE. We look forward to welcoming you
Dear friends welcome to our October Day Annual Pilgrimage to the Shrine at Kearsley. The Mount Carmel Group are preparing the day for us. We gather at 12.30pm and you are invited to bring a packed lunch. Opening Prayer and introduction to the day will be at 1.15pm followed by an input on
Becoming a Missionary Disciple of Our Lady and an Apostle of the Covenant of Love
This will be followed by two workshops – one about weaving the fabric of our Covenant further and a second about preparing for reaching out to many so that they may discover the Covenant of Love as a viable way to holiness. We will have a children’s programme. The Café will be available until 3.00pm. We’ll have prayers in the Shrine from 4.00pm on and holy Mass in the Hall at 5.00pm. We look forward to welcoming you on the day.

The Mount Carmel Group welcome you to our second Covenant Mass in Lent on Sunday 18th March at 7.30pm at the Shrine. In the old calendar this was know as ‘Passion Sunday’ intensifying our preparation for the celebration of the mysteries of the Lord’s death and resurrection. We hear from Jeremiah: The days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah.
We long for the new Covenant in Christ and want to become missionary disciples of the covenant of love. In the face of his passion Our Lord prayed: Father glorify your name. Our troubled heats can distract us from the path to Christ. He wishes to give us peace for the soul. St Edmund’s group will assist us with music and we invite you to bring donations of non-perishable good for our food bank.We look forward to seeing you with your family and friends.
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
Today we are invited to ‘Rejoice in the Lord always…’ The Third Sunday in Advent sounds the bell of devoted joy – undivided in heart we turn to God in the great expectation of the gift of the Child Jesus in the stable at Bethlehem andon our Advent journey we await in hope the fullness of time. In the octave before Christmas we celebrate Covenant Mass tomorrow, Monday 18th December 2017 and we would like to invite you to Mass at the Shrine at 7.30pm followed by our Advent Christmas celebration. You are welcome to bring a donation for our food and clothes bank. We look forward to seeing you at this Mass prepared by the Mount Carmel group and led by the St Edmund’s music group.
