The Sodality of St Augustine was set up last year by the Latin Mass Society as a means for members to pray for each others' loved ones, who are lapsed or non-Catholics. It takes its inspiration from the prayers of St Monica for her wayward son, St Augustine.
In addition to a daily prayer, members can have Masses said for the Sodality's intention.
Every year we have a public Mass celebrated for the same intention; this year, the second one, will be on:
Sunday 13th July, 10:45am, at St Bede's, Clapham Park.
It will be a sung Mass with polyphony, the music provided by Charles Finch and his Cantores Missae.
St Bede's is located at 58 Thornton Rd., Clapham Park, London SW12 0LF
Members are invited to contribute to the cost of this Mass.

The Sodality prayer is is the Collect of the Commemoration 'Pro Amicis' found in the 1962 Missal, which is ideally used in Masses for the Sodality's intention.
O God, who, by the grace of the Holy Ghost, hast poured the gifts of charity in the hearts of thy faithful, grant to thy servants and handmaids, for whom we entreat thy mercy, health of mind and body; that they may love thee with all their strength and, by perfect love, may do what is pleasing to thee. Through our Lord Jesus Christ thy Son, who liveth and reigneth in the unity of the same Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen.
