Once again, on the day the Church celebrated the Solemnity of our Blessed Lady's Assumption into Heaven, a group of St Clare's parishioners gathered together at St Mary's church, Fernyhalgh (our neighbour) to pray together the Glorious Mysteries of the Holy Rosary.
This rosary was said for the families of the parish, the the parish itself, for our Lady's intentions and for a plethora of private intentions. This is following in an acient custom for pilgrims have been coming to Fernyhalgh for many hundreds of years pre-Reformation and even during those perilous years of persecution. Our little gesture added to the miriad of Masses and Services, processions and events which today, throughout the world, will honour our Blessed Lady on this celebration of her Assumption.
Our Lady of Fernyhalgh - Pray for us.
