Portiuncula celebration on Friday August 2 – Poor Clare Collettines

An email from Poor Clare Collettines, Marian House of the Holy Spirit, invites members of our Midland Region to their Portiuncula celebration on Friday August 2. Also you are all invited too if you are happened to be in Nottingham around that time.

 

Dear friends and sisters and brothers in St Francis,

May the Lord give you peace!

We have been in Nottingham since last November and we are hosting a Portiuncula celebration in the church to which our monastery is attached, Our Lady of Perpetual Succour in Bulwell. We should love to invite you to join us.

The Mass and the prayers for the Assisi Pardon – the Portiuncula Indulgence – will begin at 6pm on Friday, August 2. The sacrament of reconciliation will be available from 5 pm onwards before the service.

There will be refreshments in the Community Centre next door, after the celebration.

We should love to meet you!

From your loving little sisters,
Mother Damian and the Poor Clare Colettines
