"The Virgin Mary in Liturgy, Literature and Life" Conference with Bishop Athanasius Schneider

Chancellor of the Grand Priory of Great Britain, Rev. Fr. Mark Lawler SChLJ MMLJ, is one of the speakers at a conference in France to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the death of St Louis Grignon de Montfort at the Chavagnes Studium, speaking on “G.K. Chesterton on Mary and the Church”.

Summer Conference on

"The Virgin Mary 

in Liturgy, Literature and Life"

from 2nd  -  4th August 2016.

With Bishop Athanasius Schneider

as keynote speaker, on the theme

"The Virgin Mary and the Defence of the Faith"

The programme includes
daily Mass, Vespers and Benediction,
a pilgrimage to St Laurent sur Sèvre
(with the tomb of St Louis de Montfort)
and a meal aboard a former restaurant car of the Orient Express,
plus good Catholic cheer every evening,
and is set to be a great Catholic holiday for intellectual Catholics.

All this in the charming setting of Chavagnes College in the beautiful part of France known as the Vendee, where historically the Faith held out against many onslaughts and is still in strong evidence today, with wayside Calvary shrines evident in every village and town - a testament to the sufferings endured for the Faith.
