To bring this month of Mary to an end would you like to go on a short pilgrimage to Schoenstatt this Wednesday 31 October, following Mass that morning?I can take 3 people in my car, if other car drivers would like to consider taking the short pilgrimage too it would be possible to take more people.The initial plan would be to say the Rosary in the cars on our way to Schoenstatt, say the Rosary in the small chapel there and say the Rosary on the way home in the cars and perhaps have a cup of tea/coffee at the Cross when we return.If you are interested could you ring me on 942 8229/07305023481 or email me on email@example.com.
