☞ Did you know?
St Mary’s Shrine costs £1,444 a week to run and maintain. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
Thank you to all who gave extra time to prepare the liturgies (singers, servers, cameramen), clean the church, arrange flowers and cook for clergy and lay guests at the Priory during Holy Week.
GA envelopes labeled to collect from Narthex.
Please do subscribe to this scheme, so that less of your gift be spent in admin cost and more in helping St Mary’s.
Indeed, if you Gift Aid using the ‘one-off’ envelopes in the pews, our secretary needs more time to process more data. If you Gift Aid via the regular scheme, it is quicker for us to process, and thus your money is put to better use.
Help us minimise admin & maximise your giving:
The box sets of GIFT AID envelopes for the new tax year will be available for collection shortly. Anyone who is a tax payer and a regular user of the occasional Gift Aid envelopes (those left on the benches) and would prefer their own set of dated and numbered, Sunday Gift Aid envelopes, should contact Jane Wright in the Shrine Office firstname.lastname@example.org
Easter Collections: Not retained by Shrine Clergy for personal use. Rather, according to FSSP policy, all Easter (and Christmas) collections are used to cover the Shrine’s weekly expenses (including the clergy). We rely essentially on your generosity. Thank you in advance for your much needed financial support.
Safeguarding Representative: Thank you to Clare Fraser, who agreed to succeed Chris Gehrke as our local Safeguarding Representative. A daily worshipper at St Mary’s, Clare will be part of the Safeguarding Team within the wider parish.
Weekly Family Day: As soon as further DBS checks are completed, our monthly family day will occur weekly. After our usual 12.10pm Mass, there will be a picnic and 2 afternoon classes following a set curriculum. We will end with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament before joining (those who wish) the Junior Choir practice. Info/contact: Alison Kahn email@example.com
Congress: Three more paid-for spaces are available for Shrine parishioners to attend the Eucharistic Congress in September. Please contact urgently the clergy or directly Fr Dave Heywood, P.P.
Copies of the Diocesan Directory for sale: ask at the Presbytery.
March For Life: join us to London on Sat. 5th May for the great pro-life walk! Now is the time to walk for life. Day Return train tickets available: book with Peter Boyle our pro-life officer: firstname.lastname@example.org. With Frs de Malleray and Verrier.
