NOTE this date ...and come along and join in!

....September 24th. This is the feast of Our Lady of Ransom/Our Lady of Walsingham. A glorious and most important feast-day here in England. To mark it, we are launching something new:

CONTINUITY Walks and Talks, starting on September 24th, at 6.30pm.
Meet in front of Westminster Cathedral. A guided History Walk around Westminster, finishing in a pub. The Walk will last approx one and a half hours. No need to book - just turn up. Wear comfortable shoes. We'll be doing the walk whatever the weather, so come dressed appropriately. Bring some money for the pub. Bring enthusiasm,your Rosary, good walking ability, and a friend or two.

The Continuity Movement
is committed to the revival of the Catholic Faith in England. Westminster is gloriously rich in history - you'll be learning not only about Edward the Confessor and the Abbey and the monks, but also about the centuries before and after, about Thorney Island and the Saxons, about a 17th century Catholic monarch and an escape across the Thames from the Horseferry Road, about a Duke's Sister and the care of orphans, about a prison and wasteland where a great Cathedral would one day arise where a Pope would visit...

This Walk is aimed at anyone who is interested. For non-Londoners: nearest station and Tube is VICTORIA - to find the Cathedral just walk down Victoria Street and it's on your right! You can also get there easily from St James Park tube - follow the signs.

NOTE: Meet at Westminster Cathedral, not Abbey (tho' we'll be walking that way too).
