PRIORY CAMPAIGN: Thank you to EWTN film director Stefano Mazzeo who came last week to St Mary’s Shrine to record a video in support of the Priory campaign. It should be accessible on our website shortly.
PLEASE PRAY! If we want our Campaign to be successful, our best asset is PRAYER. We have 7 weeks to raise £1.5m to and buy back the former Priory and St Mary’s School next door (total Net Internal Area of 1,383.19 Sq m or 14,891 Sq ft.) plus an extra £280k for estimated conversion of offices to pastoral use.
This is a unique opportunity to endow St Mary’s with the space we urgently need: parish hall, music room, clergy offices, and classrooms. In addition, a pro-life office, a publishing company, a catholic bookshop, a vestments-sewing workshop and accommodation for retreatants could be added.
Thank you so much to all of you who have contacted us over the past few weeks to pledge a donation. We have £303,445.00 pledged. Just as we expect this project to benefit souls even at a distance from Warrington, we seek support from far and wide, not only among our local congregation. In our times of growing adversity, the Priory Campaign aims at building a strongly Catholic community. Please speak to your friends about this historic opportunity, and pray for generous benefactors.
At this stage, we request pledges rather than actual donations. Kindly specify amount, currency and confirm bank transfer by 15 September. Our Campaign bank account details will be advertised by early September.
Introducing St Mary’s Choir School: Will meet every Thursday during term times 1pm-4.15pm/5pm. Lunch; Two lessons with Break; Eucharistic Benediction; Singing practice. With local parents and Shrine clergy. Contact A. Kahn: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Goodbye Fr Phipps! Fr Seth Phipps offered his last Sunday Mass at St Mary’s on 19th August. This Sunday he is in Waterford, Ireland. He will depart to Reading on Friday 31st August. We wish him God’s blessings in his new assignment at St John Fisher House with Frs Goddard and O’Donohue.
(Fr de Malleray is on vacation until 2nd September.)
Sports Day near St Mary’s on Thurs. 30th August 2pm-4pm (weather allowing)
Meet in: Victoria Park, Knutsford Rd, WA4 1DQ, straight after usual 12:10pm Mass. Directions: Upon entering via the main entrance, park on the right. Continue down the footpath, with the athletics stadium to the left and the play area on your right. There are rugby fields on your left. We meet on the patch of land opposite them (on your right- look for the bunting). Bring your own picnic and camping chairs/rugs. Entrance fee= £2 politely requested towards costs. All ages welcome, from tiny to tall! Bring grandparents and friends too, but please let me know the names and ages of children who will be entering so we can write some certificates in advance! The park is a public space, and parents are responsible for their children at all times– please keep a close eye on them! Contact Alison Kahn: email@example.com
Summer Camps: great pics on our Flickr page:
Altogether this year, the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter in the UK & Ireland will have organised memorable Catholic holidays for 70 (including 65 children and 5 young adults). Watch this space and book early for next year!
Thank you to the generous ladies who volunteer to bring cooked food to the Priory on occasion. Your clergy are delighted to discover that there is a life outside… the microwave!
Prayer for Vocations: How to make your prayer for vocations even more effective? Ask Eileen from the West Midlands, Peter from Hampshire, Siobhan from London and Matthew from Oxfordshire – who were enrolled in our 6000-strong international prayer network, the Confraternity of St Peter, on the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, last 22 August. As they did, visit www.fssp.org/en/help-us/confraternity-of-saint-peter/.
UK Vocations: Congratulations to John, from the South of England, who was admitted to our American seminary and will begin formation next month.
Please pray for the World Gathering of Families in Dublin; for pilgrims to Walsingham including FSSP seminarians Gwilym and Gideon.
Mass intentions: all booked for several months ahead. However, we will endeavour to apply more intentions to private Masses (then mentioning the intentions on this bulletin) and to extra public Masses.
Baronius hand missals: Another 30 copies have arrived! Please bring £37.00 to get yours. Note the huge discount, as Amazon’s best public price is £53.95.
Do write your name clearly inside and outside, since similar copies are used by nearly 70 members of our congregation.
Pro-Life: Help fund appeal against anti-life buffer zone in Ealing: uk.gofundme.com > alinalegalfund.
Watch Holy Mass at St Mary’s daily on www.livemass.org. The Mass of the day can be watched for 24hrs and that of the Sunday for the entire week.
Reminder: To receive Holy Communion: to be a Catholic, in state of grace, one-hour fasting.
In the EF liturgy, Holy Communion is received kneeling (unless unable to) and always on the tongue. Thank you in advance.
