The Society of the Missionaries of the Holy Apostles will hold its General Assembly from the 5th to the  18th of August 2012 in Lima, Peru. The theme of this Assembly is “Visionary Missionaries”. The “Holy Apostles” are missionaries who, in the footsteps of Jesus and of Father Eusebe Menard, o.f.m., have been sent into the world “in order to promote, form and accompany youths and adults in their vocation to the presbyteral ministery and to other ministries in the Church”.

            We recommend to your prayers the Missionaries of the Holy Apostles so that they may face the challenges of today’s world with a lot of creativity, prophetism and renewed visions.

On 8 September, Dennis Connell was ordained a deacon during a eucharistic celebration presided by Msgr Salvador Pineiro Garcia-Calderon, Bishop, at the time, of the Armed Forces and Archbishop elect of Ayacucho, Peru. The ceremony took place in the parish church of Mary Immaculate in Ricardo Palma.

After the publication in 2010 of the book titled, Pray 15 days with Father Eusebe-Henri Menard edited by Nouvelle Cité (France), we are happy to see this year the spanish edition (15 dias con Eusebio Enrique Menard, Ciudad Nueva, Argentina) and in english (15 days of prayer with Eusebe-Henri Menard,New City Press, New-York, USA). For the book in english, get in touch with Father Martin Rooney (USA). For the book in spanish, get in touch with each person responsible for the Delegations of Peru and Colombia. Otherwise, there are copies available in the three languages at the Sanctuary Mary-Queen-of-Hearts in Chertsey as well as at the General House. Many thanks to all the confreres who advertise, pray and meditate with this book. 
" I am glad your prayer book is making its way in way in the world. I am glad to have been able to help with the traslations, too. These past days I use this booklet for my own prayer... and find it refreshing. The rhythm of the sentences and the concise to the point challenges are helpful to anyone picking up this booklet to help with their prayer. The format is great too, just right for my purse or a guy's back pocket... Congratulations, Christian!  Sister Mary Ryan,  f.d.l.p.
