Bishop Nicholas Hudson talks about the impact the Teams of Our Lady have had on his life.
Teams began in France in 1938, when 4 Parisian couples asked their parish priest, Fr Henri Caffarel, if he could help them develop their spiritual life as couples. He replied, “Let Us Journey Together’. From these words a great movement has grown touching, shaping and growing the lives of thousands of couples and clergy. The Movement has since spread to over 90 countries worldwide and there are now more than 12,000 teams.
