Pilgrimage to the Holy Land in May 2023

This is the information regarding our trip to the Holy Land in May 2023. 

This is the link to the folder.

It is most certainly worthwhile to go on a pilgrimage with other faithful to the land of Jesus. A priest of the church of Our Lady will be with the group and we shall have Mass every day in the plain places of the life of Jesus and his disciples.

This is the application form that you can download and send to the travel agency along with a copy of your passport. 

Salt and Light

Jesus said to his disciples and that means also to you and me: 

You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden” Mathew 5,13.

Is it possible to bring little kids to Mass on Sunday? - Yes

I would like to share with you this wonderful article written by experienced parents:

Sometimes at the end of Mass a parishioner comes up to us and says “Your three children are SO well behaved!” Our standard response is either, “Thank you. We work at it” or “Thank you, some days are better than others.” The “better” days are the product of years of articles and brochures we read on taking children to Mass. Here is the distilled wisdom we rely upon.

350 years +1 of the Beguinage

Our colleagues and good friends of the Beguinage Chapel had a party last Friday. Due to covid the celebration was postponed till now.

Congratulations, and ad multos annos.
