Covenant Mass Monday 18th September 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.


Taste and See Mass on 10th September

Dear friends welcome to our Taste and See Mass at 3.30pm on Sunday 10th September at the Shrine. Hopefully you have had a good summer break and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Shrine as school starts back. For the crowning of Our Lady in October we have said ‘every love crowns’ and this is no more true than in the family. Spouses honour and respect each other and provide a safe and warm space for their children to learn love and respect for each other. Our love crowns and in a special way we ask our Lady to be Queen of our family. After mass we will have a shared meal. We invite you to bring donations for our food and clothes bank. Thank you.
