Clergy Retreat 27 Apr-1 May 2020, Stonyhurst

In the brand new retreat centre in historic Jesuit college in Lancashire. Make use of the Theodore House Oratory or St Peter’s church for private prayer. Enjoy the beautiful surrounding countryside with its network of footpaths. Comfortable en-suite accommodation make Theodore House a fantastic retreat setting!

• Clergy Retreat 27 April – 1st May 2020
• Arrival by 3pm on Monday 27th April 2020
• Departure 3pm on Friday 1st May 2020
• Theme: The priests and Holy Church: her sons and defenders.
• Preached by : Fr Armand de Malleray, FSSP
• For: Any diocesan and religious clerics, including deacons and seminarians
• Daily Mass (missal of your choice), Holy Hour and Latin Compline

Scope: Holy Church is under attack and her priests are undermined. Can we still profess the Church as holy and the priesthood as sacred? The traditional ecclesiology, spirituality and liturgy explain why the sins of her sons wound the Bride of Christ and yet do not mar her purity, neither invalidate their calling. After the example of the Sovereign High Priest Jesus Christ, today as ever, priestly sanctity is essential to the welfare of Holy Church.

Cost £320 in total (4 days full board single room with ensuite).
BOOKINGS: send your £50 and/or full payment to:

The Christian Heritage Centre, Stonyhurst, Clitheroe BB7 9PZ bookings@christianheritagecentre.com ;
01254 827329.

About the preacher: For fifteen years Fr de Malleray has been giving clergy retreats at various venues in England and abroad. Based in the Liverpool Archdiocese, he is the author of ‘Ego Eimi – It is I: Falling in Eucharistic Love‘ [https://www.lumenfidei.ie/product/ego-eimi-it-is-i/]. His forthcoming book is on the sacred priesthood. He is the editor of the quarterly magazine Dowry, and general chaplain of the youth movement Juventutem and of the Confraternity of St Peter, an international prayer network for priestly vocations and ministry.

———————–
In response to a priest’s enquiry: the retreat is not aimed at promoting the Extraordinary Liturgy in Latin. Fr de Malleray gives retreats to clergy every year. Their purpose is spiritual input for fellow priests, regardless of what form of the Mass they offer. In fact, most participants are diocesan clergy who say only or mostly the Ordinary Form of the Mass.

The themes are diverse: Year of Mercy, Year for Priests, The Priest and Our Lady, The Priest and Martyrdom, The Priest and the Eucharist.

Liverpool Pro-Life Walk Sat 5th Oct

SPUC Merseyside

A message from Anne Fearon, Chairman of SPUC Merseyside

29 September 2019

(Merseyside Walk of Witness)

“I reckon we have been doing our Merseyside walk for about 23 years now – or not far off it. We are a small but determined group and every year in spite of the weather, the blisters and the aching knees we always find plenty to keep us going – our friendships and the people we meet along the way and of course our witness to the truth. We know it has an impact on the strangers we encounter but we will never know how much or if we have really made them people think!

This year it takes place this Saturday 5th October starting at Parkfield Rd BPAS. We meet around 9am and after a few prayers set off by 9.30am. If you can join us please bring a packed lunch. Tea/coffee available at our lunch stop in Bootle. We end at St William of York church, Thornton, usually around 3pm and there we are treated to lovely refreshments provided by Fr Dunstan and Pat.

Please let me know if you can make all or part of the walk – it would be lovely to have a few more people.”

Change of clergy:

Fr Loewenstein will be away from Monday 16th September until after Easter for health reasons, staying at an FSSP house in France. We thank him for his generous dedication at St Mary’s over the past two years and we assure him of our prayers for his recovery.

We welcome Fr Henry Whisenant as priest-in-residence from this weekend until the end of the civil year. Fr Whisenant is a priest from the diocese of East Anglia. After spending time at a traditional Benedictine community in Tasmania, he was allowed by his bishop to stay with us for a few months and help with pastoral ministry. He is now familiar with St Mary’s, having spent time with us over the summer.

Lastly, Deacon Roger Gilbride, FSSP will join our clergy community from the end of next month until Easter included. Deacon Gilbride is a New Zealander from English and Irish descent. He is in his last year of formation at our seminary until priestly ordination next year.

There are no changes regarding Frs de Malleray and Verrier.

Two weeks ago a) the last £50k pledged donation reached our account as the last instalment of five; and b) a benefactor pledged £100k to help us purchase Priory Court No1 (we need £240k within a year from signing). Please pray now for any hurdle to be smoothed and for imminent signing of purchase.

Forthcoming Weddings: Congratulations to Julie Haynes who will be married to Nick Barrick next 14th September at the FSSP parish in Lincoln, NE; and to Matthew Stankiewicz and Gemma Drury who will be married by Fr Verrier at St Mary’s next 28th September. Both couples were betrothed at St Mary’s. We assure them of our prayers.

2CV trek in Wales with Fr Verrier and several young men two weeks ago. If successful, it may grow next year.

Summer Camps this past fortnight: thank you for your prayers for the success of these Catholic holidays involving 70 children, clergy and lay staff. See pictures on our albums here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/138056205@N08/albums.
