Blessed Marie-Eugene

We are approaching the Feast Day of Blessed Marie-Eugene on Sunday 4 February. Notre Dame de Vie - the worldwide Carmelite movement which he co-founded - are hosting a day on Saturday at the Carmelite Church in High St Kensington. Mass at 12.15pm with veneration of his relics will be followed by a light lunch, a talk by Fr Matt Blake OCD, and a period of silent prayer followed by a concluding half-hour of questions and answers. The timetable for the day is set out more clearly in the News section of this website.

I myself have been beavering away at the preparation of a talk on Blessed Marie-Eugene to be given online, hosted by the Friars at Boars Hill, on Saturday evening.
