THE P RTAL May 2018 Page 17 News from the Ordinariate LOGS go out and about L OGS, the Ladies Ordinariate Group, will be busy this summer. The usual evening meetings with a guest speaker give way to outdoor activities and various trips. In May, the group will be on pilgrimage  to the shrine of Our Lady of Consolation at West Grinstead in Sussex, where Mass was celebrated secretly in recusant times. June always sees the group’s annual gathering sponsored by its Croydon members, meeting at Virgo Fidelis Church in Upper Norwood. Speaker will be Fr James Clark, who will talk about his work as chaplain to the John Fisher School. July will see the group travelling by river from Westminster to Richmond, where after a lunch break at a local pub, they will go on to Strawberry Hill, where the 18th century mansion and large modern University are due to be visited: LOGS chairman Joanna Bogle is currently working on the University’s history, due for publication in 2020. There is also a planned visit to Kenley Airfield - famous for its role in the Battle of Britain and now welcoming visitors to discover the story of those heroic days. And then, with the Autumn approaching, comes the annual visit to Walsingham - and a review of activities in 2018 and  plans for the year ahead Anglo Portuguese Ensemble concert O n Friday 20th April 2017 a concert entitled a Musical Partnership was held at the church by the Anglo Portuguese Ensemble. The Ensemble is a string formation made up of young musicians from both Portugal and the United Kingdom who have their resident base at the church of Our Lady of the Assumption and St Gregory. The talented string orchestra performed a number of works by Mendelssohn, Shostakovich and Braga Santos and the musicians entertained all those present to some beautiful music and the music most certainly made the church feel  both a very sacred and special place. Correction: Last month, in our article by Dr Simon Cotton, we stated that the so-called ‘Novichok’ (‘Newcomer’) agents - one of these is believed to have been used in Salisbury - were developed by Russian researchers in the 1940s and 1950s. It should have been “in the 1970s and 1980s”. We apologise for the error.
