Covenant Mass in October


by Fr. Bryan Cunningham on 17/10/2017

You are invited to our Covenant Mass in October, tomorrow, Wednesday 18th October at 7.30pm at the Shrine. Our Mount Carmel Group are preparing this Mass with remembers the beginnings of Schoenstatt on 18th October 1914 and follows the renewal of the Walsingham Crowning of our Lady as Schoenstatt Queen of England and as Queen of the Family.Our homes become little shrines, in the Second Vatican Council they spoke of domestic church; each home a place of grace and school of sanctity in everyday life. Theme of the Covenant Mass is taken from Pope Francis’ letter on the joy of love in the family and refers to the depth of our relationship which can become a strong network of personal support and for you to give support in solidarity and mutual care to others. We cannot simply log-in or block at will like we can do in social media.We look forward to seeing you there. Please bring a donation for our food and clothes bank.

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.

Greeting for Ash Wednesday


by Fr. Bryan Cunningham on 02/03/2017

Fr Duncan wrote at the beginning of our Lenten Journey towards Easter:

The Jewish Hasidic tradition teaches that everyone should have two pockets in their coats with two slips of paper.

One slip says: “I am only dust and ashes.”  

The other “For me the whole universe was created.”  

Sometimes we need to remember that first slip of paper, as we have done and will do tonight as we come to be marked with the ashes of repentance, and sometimes we also need to remember the second – to remember that we have been adopted by God in Christ – that through him God forgives us – and calls us his “Beloved” – everything has been made out of love for us.

“I am only dust and ashes” These ashes are a reminder of who we are. The Bible tells us that we came from the dust and to the dust we shall return. The first human was formed out of the dust of the earth by God and then God breathed life into that dust. That is a powerful image.  One that is meant to remind us that without the breath or Spirit of God moving in us, we are just like these ashes: lifeless – worthless.These ashes are also a sign of repentance. They are a way of showing on the outside what is happening on the inside. We are truly sorry for our sins. Lent is a time when we are called to repent and change our ways.

“For me the whole universe was created”The mark of the cross is a mark of ownership. These ashes tonight remind us that we are Christ’s – that he died so that we might live.It is also significant that we use palm branches to make these ashes.  The palms are a symbol of victory.  By making the ashes from the palms of Palm Sunday we are reminded, if we truly repent, that Christ will be victorious in us.
