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.

Traditional May Crowning held at the Shrine of Our Lady of Glastonbury

A traditional May Crowning was held at the Shrine of Our Lady of Glastonbury on Trinity Sunday, May 31st, at the 11:00 Mass. 

Pictured above with Fr James are some of the many children who took part. Fresh flowers and a circlet or crown of blossoms were provided by parishioners, and during the procession and crowning, the congregation and choir sang a very old hymn, familiar to many, “Bring Flowers of the Rarest”.  Fr James explained in his homily the nearness of Mary to all three persons of the Trinity–and the fact that at the Annunciation the Angel Gabriel mentions, for the first time in the Scriptures, the concept of the Trinity, the three persons who will make our salvation possible through Mary’s “yes”.
