Sheffield Lay Carmel group hosted their Annual Day of Recollection at the Carmelite Monastery of the Holy Spirit, Kirk Edge.

  The central part of the day was the Celebration of Mass.  Fr Chris Ainslie was the celebrant.  In his homily he reflected on the maternal solicitude of Mary, who loves and cares for all of us.  He encouraged everyone as her children to make her known and loved and always to have recourse to her.
