Fr. Patrick Peyton

This weekend I came across a site re. Father Patrick Peyton visiting England.
Back in the 1950's he visited our school.  Does anyone else remember him?
He's up for sainthood, so I feel sort of honoured to have seen him.

Prayer Crusade

[Image: frPeyton2.jpg]Fr Peyton was so grateful to the Blessed Virgin Mary for his health that he, with the permission of his superiors, began the Prayer Crusade which took him all over the world preaching the importance of prayer, especially family prayer.
He staged hundreds of radio and television shows with many of the famous movie stars of Broadway and Hollywood taking part. He was the founder of "Family Rosary" and "Family Theatre".
His famous slogan was:
"The family that prays together,
stays together."

I didn't know all that about him back then.... just that he was trying to get people to say the Rosary.
He's deceased now.

Very interesting.  Thanks Patrick.
I didn't realize that he was quite as 'big'.
It's good to see someone who is so sincere about their faith.

Hello Mary, How are you doing?
I vaguely remember the tin huts, but cannot remember why I was there!  Sad  Think that was before, or when, I first came to live in Jarrow.
I don't remember Fr. Peyton at Roker Park, but I didn't go.  Fr. Peyton came to our school so didn't need to.  We could do with a bit more peaceful stuff these days, instead of all the fighting and awful stuff that's going on now.  Think we had to make a pledge to say the Rosary??   Wonder how many still say it.

My grandfather's generation called the tin hut the "Loaf Tin" It was used as a sort of parish centre. During the bombings in 1941 it served as a temporary refuge for those whose houses had been rendered uninhabitable.
