The Friars of the Immaculate are back!

We are pleased to welcome back the Friars of the Immaculate.  Last year, Fr George Roth and Brother Rosario (pictured) joined the British chapters and it was apparently an eye opener for them.  Fr George mentioned that the British coach contained "wonderful people -- not good people; wonderful people!' and Brother Rosario claimed that the experience had changed his life.  So, if it can do this for the clergy, think what it can do for you!  Brother Rosario will be back this year, accompanied by Father Pio Idowu.  The Friars are based in Gosport on the South Coast and run an internet radio RadioImmaculata.org.  Worth a listen!  Registrations are coming in in a steady steam with lots of familiar faces ("the wonderful people"!).  Don't miss out -- register here!

The theme this year is "Holy Mary, Mother of God!"  On the Saturday, we meditate on "Our Lady, Truly the Mother of God" and our patron is Notre Dame de la Sante Espérance (whose statue leads the pilgrimage).  On Pentecost, we meditate on "Our Lady, True Mother of Men" under the patronage of St Louis Marie Grignon de Montfort and, on Pentecost Monday, we meditate on the theme "Our Lady, Queen of Apostles" under the Patronage of Our Lady of the Rosary.              

Come, join us!
