The following Mass requests have been said this week as private Masses: Sean Keenan, Jack Ashworth, Mary Fitch, Patrick Keenan, Josephine Creegan.
Sacred Music at St Mary’s: Despite recent changes, we at St Mary’s Shrine have every intention to continue and actively support our long-standing musical tradition. After over a century, it would have stopped in 2015, had priestly ministry not continued after the withdrawing of Ampleforth and Liverpool clergy. We thank our choir members for their generous service over the years. Liturgical singing aims at glorifying God, providing inspiration for worshippers.
Six months ago, Fr Ian Verrier, FSSP stepped in with short notice to prepare and help with the music at our priestly ordination. A professional musician, Fr Verrier has worked successfully with St Mary’s singers since then. He will continue to do so for the foreseeable future, in his new capacity as Organist and Choir Master, effective this Sunday, 11th Nov. We invite anyone interested to contact him to join St Mary’s Choir, including children for St Mary’s Junior Choir: email@example.com.
Fr Verrier read Music at The University of Birmingham and pursued postgraduate cello performance at The Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) and gained a Post Graduate Certificate in Education with specialist string teaching at the RNCM and The Manchester Metropolitan University. He plays the cello, harpsichord, organ and piano. After completing his studies, he taught Music and directed the choir and chant schola in a professional capacity at an international boarding school for two years. Following this, during his seven years at our international seminary he served as organist, led the polyphonic choir and the Gregorian chant schola.
PRIORY CAMPAIGN: We have just over 1/3 of the asking price: further donations are gratefully received. Please pray for an affordable agreement. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any inquiries.
Congratulations to Calin and Diana Matei whose second child Victoria, was baptised at St Mary’s yesterday by Fr Verrier. Please pray for little Victoria now a child of God, and for her family.
460 alive / 8 deceased…
We offered last Thursday a Solemn High Mass of Requiem for the deceased members of the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter. As a young and growing community (30 years old), we are fortunate to have so far very few members deceased. But soon our senior members will reach the end of their lives – unless many more of us die as martyrs.
Meanwhile, please pray for many more priests to be ordained with our Fraternity. Like Simon, Lydia, Peter, Stephany, Peter, Bartolomiej, Dorothy, Jerome and William, who will be enrolled in our international prayer network for priestly vocations and ministry next 21st Nov, feast of the Presentation of Our Lady – make your prayer for vocations more efficient, visiting www.fssp.org/en/help-us/confraternity-of-saint-peter/.
O Lord, grant us priests! O Lord, grant us holy priests! O Lord, grant us many holy priests!
