“The only worthwhile striving is after the highest ideals: If you aim for an easy target, your standard will inevitably decline, and no progress is ever made, except through real effort and real suffering.” - Servant of God Fra' Andrew Bertie                                                                                                                                                 "Work as if everything depends on you, pray as if everything depends on God" - Saint Ignatius of Loyola


A very warm thanks to all those who contributed so generously to the Order's Appeal for the relief work in Haiti at the Mass on Sunday.   A total of £400 was raised in cash in the retiring collection.

Many of you took the Appeal leaflet and Gift-Aid form with you, please fill it in and send it back quickly with as much as you can afford to give.   Additional copies are available here.

As the Grand Prior stated in his appeal, this is not a project for a few months, or even years.  This work will take more than a generation to complete, to restore normal human conditions to this tragic people.

Please, therefore, continue to hold Haiti among your charitable works, and above all in your prayers.

O Crux Ave, Spes Unica
