PRIORY CAMPAIGN: More Prayers Needed!
We are so DEEPLY GRATEFUL to all of you for the £541,256.36 raised since 18 July.
In addition, there is about £50,000.00 of Gift Aid: but this money will be sent to us by HM Revenue too late for purchase: it can only be used for conversion work later on. Put simply then, we are still short of £208,743.64 to buy even only one of the two buildings.
Please pray that the vendor will let us buy even part of one building for a just price. We hope to reach an agreement this week, please God.
Meanwhile, further donations are gratefully received.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any inquiries.

Why Catholic missions? Last Sunday’s homily is on vimeo.com/296567126 (oops! 22 mins – it took longer than intended…)
On All Souls’ Day (Nov. 2nd ) a plenary indulgence, applicable only to the Poor Souls in Purgatory, is granted to those who visit a Catholic church and there recite one Our Father and one Creed.
On all the days from November 1st through November 8th inclusive, a plenary indulgence, applicable only to the Poor Souls in Purgatory, is granted to those who visit a cemetery and pray even if only mentally for the departed. There must be one visit for each day one seeks to gain the indulgence; one visit will not apply for several days. Any public cemetery with Christian tombs will do. The nearest one is 5 minutes walk from St Mary’s: St Elphin’s, Church Street, WA1 2TL.
Conditions for both indulgences:
- Only one plenary indulgence can be granted per day.
2. It is necessary to be in the state of grace, at least by completion of the work.
3. Freedom from attachment to sin, even venial sin, is necessary; otherwise the indulgence is only partial. (By this is meant attachment to a particular sin, not sin in general.)
4. Holy Communion must be received each time the indulgence is sought.
5. Prayers must be recited for the intentions of the Holy Father on each day the indulgence is sought. No particular prayers are prescribed. One Our Father and one Hail Mary suffice, or other suitable prayers.
6. One must be absolved in confession the fortnight before or following.
Reminder on All Saints: “On Sundays and other holy days of obligation the faithful are bound to participate in the Mass.” (cf Catholic Code of Canon Law, 1247). A grave cause is needed to excuse from the obligation. In case of doubt, consult your priest in advance. Missing Holy Mass on those days without a grave cause is a mortal sin.
Thank you to Br Vincent-Mary Hoare, FSVF, and Peter Kahn for singing the Mass with Fr de Malleray as our singers are away for half term.
