This Week’s Parish Newssheet

Our most abundant, and truly blessed 2016 Pilgrimage Season, is finally drawing to a close. We have been pleased to welcome between 2,500 and 3,000 pilgrim visitors to The Shrine. Many thanks to all our parishioners who have helped at these (almost 40) events.

The Annual Parish Requiem, followed by the Blessing of our Graveyard, will take place on Sunday 6th November at 3.00pm. Contributions towards the tea party that follows will, as ever, be greatly appreciated. 

Another date for your diary: on Sunday 13th November there will be a Missa Cantata at 3pm, as a Sung Mass of Requiem in the Extraordinary Form. The Celebrant will be Fr Hurley.

Shrine Prayer
O God, who through the Virgin Mary has willed to give to your people the true consolation, Jesus Christ; grant to us who venerate her, under the title of Our Lady of Consolation, the grace to co-operate with her in the work of Redemption, we ask this through Christ Our Lord.  Amen.
