With the Blessed Virgin Mary towards the 16th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops.
At the request of the Holy Father, the Secretariat responsible for the Universal Synod has invited the Church around the world to hold a moment of Marian Prayer on 31 May (the Feast of the Visitation and the last day of the Marian Month of May).
It is to place the work of the Synod, especially the work of the 16th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, which will take place in Rome this October, under the protection of Mary, Mother of the Church.
Bishop Brian McGee will lead a service of prayer at Carfin Grotto at 7:00pm.
The faithful throughout Scotland are also asked to join their prayers to those of the universal Church on that day. The attached resource may be used at the celebration of Mass on 31 May or adapted for other use.
7:00pm. Carfin Grotto. Synod event organised by the Bishops' Conference of Scotland.
