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".
