Feast of the Holy Rosary

Today is the Patronal Feast of the parish. At the Latin Mass this morning I spoke of the origin of the feast and its connection with the appeal by St Pius V to Catholic Europe to pray the Rosary to save Europe from Turkish invasion. The victory at Lepanto on October 7th 1571 was taken to be an answer to prayer and this day became the feast of the Holy Rosary. Tonight we have a concert in the parish hall by the New Ormston Singers as part of the celebrations.
