“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



The Mid-Lenten Evening of Recollection will this year be held in the Lady Chapel of St James’s Spanish Place, London W1 on Thursday 31st March 2011.

The Evening will be led by the Reverend Nicholas Schofield, Parish Priest of Uxbridge and Archivist of the Archdiocese of Westminster. 

Mass will be at 6.45pm (note the changed time) followed by a Holy Hour before the Blessed Sacrament exposed, which will include a short conference, concluding with Benediction. We are grateful to the Rector of Spanish Place, the Reverend Christopher Colven for allowing us the use of the Lady Chapel.

There will be drinks afterwards, for which a modest contribution will be requested, and further refreshment locally for those who wish. Members of the Order and Companions are extremely welcome to bring guests, especially those who are, or might be, aspirants to the Order.
