Adults curious to know more about Catholicism? Join our Saturday evening group of catechism for adults: most Saturdays 6pm-7pm, with Fr Loewenstein. We are very glad that 7 adults have been coming regularly to learn about the Catholic faith and be received into the Church.
This will take place, please God, on Sunday 23rd June, external solemnity of Corpus Christi. The new Catholics will receive First Holy Communion that day (with other candidates). All are invited to pray for them and to join the Eucharistic procession across town that afternoon.
Two weeks later, on Thursday 4th July 2019 at 7:00pm, they will receive the sacrament of Confirmation from His Grace Archbishop Malcolm McMahon, OP of Liverpool, at St Mary’s Shrine.
Please contact Fr Loewenstein to join the adults group or to receive Confirmation or First Communion this here year: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Betrothal ceremony: Congratulations to Mr Matthew Stankiewicz from St Helens and Miss Gemma Drury from Colchester, who will be betrothed at St Mary’s on Monday 21st January, 12 noon. Please pray for the young couple as they formally begin preparation to the sacrament of Matrimony.
SYNOD 2020: On Sunday 3rd February at 3.00pm, the Archbishop, at a special service in the Cathedral, will celebrate formally the calling of a Synod for the Archdiocese of Liverpool.
PRIORY CAMPAIGN: By the end of January, a pre-planning application process should hopefully confirm the change of use from ‘Business’ to ‘Community’, enabling our trustees to decide which part of the building(s) to purchase. Meanwhile, further donations are gratefully received, as we have only 1/3 of the asking price. Contact email@example.com for any inquiries.
