Totus Tuus - To Jesus through Mary.

To impel the beauty of the new evangelization – this is the charism of the Heralds of the Gospel; Its founder, Monsignor João Dias explains."The Heralds of the Gospel is a private association of faithful with a very special charism based essentially on three points: the Eucharist, Mary and the Pope."

The Heralds of the Gospel are an International Association of the Faithful of Pontifical Right, the first to be established by the Holy See in the third millennium, during a ceremony which occurred during the feast of the Chair of St. Peter (February 22) in 2001.

The Heralds of the Gospel strive to be instruments of holiness in the Church by encouraging close unity between faith and life, and working to evangelize particularly through art and culture. Their apostolate, which differs depending upon the environments in which they work, gives pride of place to parish animation, evangelizing families, providing catechetical and cultural formation to young people, and disseminating religious Iiterature.

Celebrating the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Iver Heath.

On Saturday September 12 The Heralds of the Gospel had a special event celebrating the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, a feast that in itself is an announcement of the most joyful birth of all, Christmas.
The event took place in the beautiful gardens of the Convent of the Bridgettine Sisters in Iver Heath, Bucks. Holy Mass, Adoration and Confession were the most important part of the program, which also included the coronation of the statue of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and the Act of Consecration to Our Lady.
A picnic lunch was enjoyed by both children and adults. The beautiful weather also contributed to the the event, and as someone commented, "It was the nicest day of the summer".
