Chesterton said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”

On Thursday 8th July at 6.30pm there will be a plainsong High Mass in the Conventual Church of St John of Jerusalem on the feast of Blessed Adrian Fortescue, Martyr, Beatus of the Order and Patron of the Grand Priory of England.


The Mass will be celebrated in the presence of the Grand Prior, who is in London much recovered from his recent illness, by Monsignor Antony Conlon, Conventual Chaplain “ad honorem” and Chaplain to the Grand Priory of England. Members of the Order, Companions, and other friends are warmly encouraged to attend to join in the patronal festival.

The Mass will be offered for the repose of the soul of Gilberte Dumont, who died last week in the Hospice aged 104. Her family and friends will be present. You are encouraged to pray for this intention. Requiescat in Pace. 

There will be a Reception in Fortescue House after Mass, to which all are welcome.
