March for Life – 20 May

It’s 50 years since the Abortion act and 100 years since the Fatima apparitions – “the greatest message of modern times,” according to St John Paul.

So if you’re going to pick one year to go to the March for Life, perhaps make it this year?

York Pilgrimage Saturday 29 April

This is a fantastic event to attend – this year’s will be my fourth – and it led me to my interest in and commitment to the Traditional Mass through a devotion to St Margaret Clitherow.  There is a procession past the Shambles where she lived and to the spot where she was martyred, as well as a wonderful High Mass beforehand and Benediction afterwards.   It is feasible to do the trip to York and back in a (longish) day from the Bedford area and we adjourn to one of the many nice eating places in York before making the return journey.

Easter 2017

HAPPY EASTER! Some photos from Mass are below as well as a very thought provoking article (and book) about the need to set up our own communities. The Tipi Loschi are an inspiration – who knows, perhaps we can have something similar here in Bedford. We don’t have the Adriatic Coast, but we have beautiful countryside, a growing congregation in a welcoming parish and the Traditional Mass!
