Peregrinatio pro Christo

This week we have been privileged to welcome a group of Legionaries of Mary from Gozo and Malta, who have been visiting houses in the western part of the parish. They have distributed information about the Church and about the visit of St Thérèse's relics and they have had many conversations with people of all religions and none. Like the disciples, they have followed Our Lord's command in the Gospel to go out in pairs to the places He Himself is to visit.

After Sunday Masses the visting legionaries, together with members of our own Legion were able to speak to parishioners about the apostolate of the Legion of Mary. The Legion meets in the Parish Centre every Monday evening. There are also auxiliary members whose task is to pray for the work of the active legionaries.
