The church of St Augustine in Snave is one of the medieval churches built to serve very small communities on Romney Marsh in Kent. Now redundant, they are in the care of the Romney Marsh Historic Churches Trust, who have kindly given permission for us to celebrate Mass on Saturday 26 September at 12 noon. This will be the first time Mass has been celebrated in the church since Reformation times. The celebrant for the Missa Cantata will be Fr Marcus Holden (Rector of the Shrine of St Augustine, Ramsgate) and music will be supplied by The Victoria Consort, under the direction of Dominic Bevan. Please support this unique event. A poster to advertise the Mass may be downloaded from here. This also contains directions on how to get to Snave.
The annual LMS pilgrimage to the shrine of Our Lady of Aylesford. Saint Simon Stock, of the Order of Carmelites, received the Scapular from the hands of the Blessed Mother, at this location. The brown scapular of Mount Carmel, has become one of the most common sacramentals in the Church, and is a great Marian devotion. The LMS has an annual pilgrimage to this ancient and approved apparition site, just outside of London.

The Tyburn Walk is the annual commemoration of the Catholic martyrs who were executed in London during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The walk follows the route that was travelled by the martyrs from the Old Bailey (site of the former Newgate Gaol) to where they were executed near Tyburn Convent, Marble Arch. It is a solemn commemoration of those who died for the Catholic Faith.
