O Blessed Virgin Mary,
Mother of God,
and our own most gentle Queen and Mother,
look down in mercy upon England,
thy Dowry, and upon us all who greatly
hope and trust in thee.
Through thee it was that Jesus our Saviour
and our Hope was given unto the world;
and he hath given thee to us that we
might hope still more.
Plead for us thy children, whom thou
didst receive and accept at the foot
of the Cross, O sorrowful Mother.
Intercede for our separated brethren,
that they may be united with
us in the one true Fold. Pray for us all,
dear Mother,that by faith fruitful in good
works, we may all deserve to see and
praise God together with thee in our
Dear Friends in Christ,
As you will already know, 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Fatima and the NCC team are excitedly planning a joyful and memorable weekend in which we will honour Our Blessed Lady! We are hoping to draw on her “Fiat” and total trust in God as the gentle, humble servant and disciple of Jesus so that we may all be inspired and encouraged to follow her example in our daily lives as we journey towards holiness.
“My Soul Proclaims the Greatness of the Lord” Luke 1:46 will be our theme this year as we thank and praise Almighty God for giving us His mother to be our mother too!
In God’s great plan for the world we have a role to play, a mission which has been entrusted to us alone.
Only we can fulfil that purpose during our lifetime and we need prayerful guidance to discern what it is.
Who better than The Mother of God and our Heavenly Mother to help us in this task?
She was given to us by Jesus from the cross when He said: “Mother behold your son. Son behold your Mother”(John 19:26-27).
Come and join us for what is always an amazing weekend! Let us share our faith, hope and love as we allow Our Blessed Mother to touch our hearts and gently lead us ever closer to her beautiful Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Enjoy the fellowship and good food too!
As always we rely on your kindness to promote the conference by sharing your experiences with others and even if you cannot come yourself, please ask your priests to put a notice in your newsletter and display a poster in a suitable location. (It can be downloaded in .pdf format here)
Most importantly we seek your prayers for the success of the conference.
We look forward to welcoming you in June but in the meantime, the Team wish to extend to each and every one of you, our love and prayers for a blessed and peaceful year ahead.
With love and blessings.
