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.

Six Seminarians Admitted to Candidacy at Allen Hall

From Diocese of Westminster:

Six Seminarians Admitted to Candidacy at Allen Hall

On Saturday 30 May six seminarians were admitted to Candidacy at a Mass celebrated by Bishop Nicholas at Allen Hall. The men who were admitted to Candidacy are Joseph Okoro, John Scott, Michael Maguire, Julio Albornoz, Daniel Herrero and Carlos Quito. 
In his homily, Bishop Nicholas spoke about the significance of Candidacy in the process of formation for the Priesthood. He described it as a point when ‘your relationship to priesthood changes’, it is a ‘moment to take stock; and to ask yourself just how deeply you feel called to priesthood.’
Candidacy marks the stage in formation when the Church affirms the seminarians' discernment thus far and therefore invites them to a renewed and deeper preparation in their remaining studies, normally for two years.
Please keep the men in your prayers as they continue their journey towards ordination.
