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

Welcome to our Covenant Mass this Saturday, 18th November 2017 at 7.30pm at the Shrine followed by refreshments. The Group preparing the Covenant Mass is the Emmaus Group, Celebrant: Fr.Reginald and the music group from St Edmund’s will accompany us. During this year we have thought about what Pope Francis has said to us about the joy of love in the family.Theme: Living our faith in the Family: For “man cannot live without love. He remains a being that is incomprehensible for himself, his life is senseless, if love is not revealed to him”.(Redemptor Hominis §10 in AL§161). We also pray for all our deceased members and for all the faithful departed in the month of November. We remember particularly Arthur Hamilton from the St Michael’s group, keeping Edith and the family in our prayers. You are invited to bring a donation for our food and cloths bank. This time of year we look for warm socks, gloves and wooly hats. Look forward to welcoming you on Saturday.

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.
