The LMS's Sodality of St Augustine (free to join for anyone) was established in January 2013 for sodality members to unite their prayers for the conversion of their lapsed and non-Catholic loved ones. Each year a public Mass is offered for the intentions of the sodality, namely the conversion or reversion of all those for whom members are praying.
This year's Sung Mass takes place at St Bede's, Clapham Park at 10.45am on Sunday, 13 July 2014.
More details about the Sodality, including how to join, can be found here.

Details to be announced, but this promises to be a great day. Bring a packed lunch.
“The chapel is beautiful, with that unique and profoundly spiritual beauty so characteristic of the work of its architect, Augustus Welby Pugin. It was consecrated by Cardinal Wiseman in 1853 and has witnessed many an ordination and important ecclesiastic gathering. To enter the chapel today is to catch something of this great and continuing tradition.” - Cardinal Vincent Nichols (then Archbishop of Westminster) nominated favourite church to National Church’s Trust 2013.

Twice in the last two years, a group of boys from the FSSP boarding school in Normandy has stayed at Douai Abbey with one of their priests and staff. The Fraternity runs retreats at Douai Abbey several times a year.
The FSSP, during the camp, will have daily use of the lovely parish church situated on the Abbey grounds. The Cottages, where the boys will be staying (no outdoor camping), are equipped with kitchen, dining room and sitting room. They are located between the main building of the Abbey the parish church. There is a large cricket ground across the street and extensive woodland with public pathways.
With four of the FSSP English seminarians assigned to the Reading apostolate this summer, there will be an abundance of help and guidance. The two priests from Reading will obviously also be involved for holy Mass, confessions and general pastoral accompaniment.
Planned activities include: daily Mass (Extraordinary Form); altar serving workshops (Low Mass, Sung Mass, Benediction); outdoor games; catechism and apologetics sessions; art workshops; excursions (either local on foot, or by minibus or train to Oxford, Reading, Stonor House, Mapledurham House, all destinations within 1h drive).
