OUR MISSION

Image by Grant Whitty

about us

Our prime objective as missionaries  is to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ by means of devotion to the Immaculate for the greatest glory of God and for the salvation of all souls. As Christ came into this world through our Lady, we, too, seek to abandon ourselves to Her maternal protection, in order to unite ourselves to Christ most perfectly. It is through Mary that Christ enters the world, and likewise through Her that we enter into His Kingdom.

Hence, with friaries in Gosport and Portsmouth, we are here to promote the importance of consecrating ourselves to the Blessed Virgin Mary for the benefit of our own souls and for those of the whole world . Following the recent example of Saint Maximilian Kolbe - ardent devotee of the Immaculate - we use the media as a key tool for our apostolate.

Pro-Life Work

Pro-life work is one of our apostolates. The friars take part in the 40 Days for Life campaign and pray outside abortion centres for the souls of the unborn as well as for the conversion of their mothers.

Gregorian Chant Course

Gregorian chant is the highest form of sacred music which the Church considers as most suitable for worship. Not only does it transport the soul, elevating it to the contemplation of God, but also forms the soul by disposing it to the practice of virtue. You are welcome to sign up to our 8-month Scola Cantorum course.
