RENEWAL OF RELIGIOUS PROFESSION
Congratulations to Br Augustine who will be renewing his Religious Vows at the 11am Mass. Please continue to pray for vocations to our Religious Order and got the Priesthood and religious life in general.
11am MASS EACH WEDNESDAY
Commencing on Wednesday 9th August, the Shrine Mass each Wednesday will be celebrated at the Old Monastery. As this is a beautifully restored chapel, on the site of the original Monastery, it is felt that there should be more regular usage as well as the Church cleaning is organised for Wednesdays. The main Shrine Church will still be open for visitation.
Church cleaning: Next Church cleaning: Wednesday 9th August.
Fatima Day: Sunday 13th August – Main Celebrant: Fr Jaroslaw Zan OSPPE, Provincial
