“I vividly remember going to church with him in Bournemouth. He was a devout Roman Catholic and it was soon after the Church had changed the liturgy (from Latin to English). My grandfather obviously didn't agree with this and made all the responses very loudly in Latin while the rest of the congregation answered in English. I found the whole experience quite excruciating, but my grandfather was oblivious. He simply had to do what he believed to be right.”

Come and enjoy honoring Our Blessed Mother in her month of May through her song! Traditional Catholic hymns, including such favorites as “Bring Flowers of the Rarest,” “Mother, at Your Feet is Kneeling,” and “’Tis the Month of Our Mother” will be played on an extraordinary organ by Peter Krasinski. Those attending will be led in singing the hymns by an outstanding vocalist, Mark Nemeskal. Prior to the singing of each hymn, a brief background of its history and significance in Catholic devotional life will be presented by Peter Meggison.
