Marian Movement of Priests cenacle tonight

On May 8, 1972, Father Stefano Gobbi, a priest from Milan, Italy, was taking part in a pilgrimage to Fatima. While praying in the Chapel of the Apparitions for some priests who, besides having given up their own vocations, were attempting to form an association in rebellion against the authority of the Roman Catholic Church, an interior voice urged Fr. Gobbi to have confidence in the Immaculate Heart of Mary. In July 1973, Fr. Gobbi began to write down these interior locutions which he was receiving. The messages, dating from July 1973 to December 1997, are published in the book, "To the Priests, Our Lady's Beloved Sons." This led to the formation of the Marian Movement of Priests, which has grown throughout the world. Worldwide membership of the MMP is now at least 400 cardinals and bishops, more than 100,000 priests, and millions of religious and faithful around the world. Tonight, Monday, May 10, at St. Patrick’s in Vancouver, 2881 Main St., you are invited to attend the annual regional cenacle with Father Francis Geremia. It starts with Mass at 7:30 p.m. followed by adoration with cenacle prayers and refreshments. Phone 604-787-0902 for more information.
