PRIORY CAMPAIGN: Thank you to EWTN film director Stefano Mazzeo who came the other week to St Mary’s Shrine to record a video in support of the Priory campaign. It should be accessible on our website shortly.
PLEASE PRAY! If we want our Campaign to be successful, our best asset is PRAYER. We have 6 weeks to raise £1.5m to and buy back the former Priory and St Mary’s School next door (total Net Internal Area of 1,383.19 Sq m or 14,891 Sq ft.) plus an extra £280k for estimated conversion of offices to pastoral use.
This is a unique opportunity to endow St Mary’s with the space we urgently need: parish hall, music room, clergy offices, and classrooms. In addition, a pro-life office, a publishing company, a catholic bookshop, a vestments-sewing workshop and accommodation for retreatants could be added.
Thank you so much to all of you who have contacted us over the past few weeks to pledge a donation. We have £303,445.00 pledged. Just as we expect this project to benefit souls even at a distance from Warrington, we seek support from far and wide, not only among our local congregation. In our times of growing adversity, the Priory Campaign aims at building a strongly Catholic community. Please speak to your friends about this historic opportunity, and pray for generous benefactors.
At this stage, we request pledges rather than actual donations. Kindly specify amount, currency and confirm bank transfer by 15 September. Our Campaign bank account details will be advertised by early September.
MP ProLife Letter writing workshop.
Dear fellow parishioners,
Please join us after the two Holy Masses on Sunday the 2nd of September, to help flood Parliament with letters calling on MP’s to oppose abortion decriminalisation. This letter writing campaign has been launched by SPUC and your help is urgently needed as Pro – abortion MP’s are busy trying to bring forward more deadly proposals for legislation. (See Autumn issue: SPUC Pro Life Today).
The workshops will be held in the narthex and people will be on hand to help you write these letters.Templates will be available and suggestions on what to write will be offered, this should only take 10 – 15minutes. Just a few lines written to our MP’s, maybe enough to influence them and sway their opinion on these crucial issues. Don’t let them trivialise abortion like its a trip to the dentist and just another lifestyle choice.
Any G K Chesterton’s amongst us, please feel free to volunteer your skills at the workshops.

Happy Birthday to Our Lady
Do join us after Mass Saturday to celebrate the Nativity of Our Lady. Food, drink and a raffle will be held in the cloister area.
Thank you to the generous ladies who volunteer to bring cooked food to the Priory on occasion. Your clergy are delighted to discover that there is a life outside… the microwave!
Prayer for Vocations: How to make your prayer for vocations even more effective? Ask Eileen from the West Midlands, Peter from Hampshire, Siobhan from London and Matthew from Oxfordshire – who were enrolled in our 6000-strong international prayer network, the Confraternity of St Peter, on the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, last 22 August. As they did, visit www.fssp.org/en/help-us/confraternity-of-saint-peter/.
UK Vocations: Congratulations to John, from the South of England, who was admitted to our American seminary and will begin formation next month.
Mass intentions: all booked for several months ahead. However, we will endeavour to apply more intentions to private Masses (then mentioning the intentions on this bulletin) and to extra public Masses.
Baronius hand missals: Another 30 copies have arrived! Please bring £37.00 to get yours. Note the huge discount, as Amazon’s best public price is £53.95.
Do write your name clearly inside and outside, since similar copies are used by nearly 70 members of our congregation.
Watch Holy Mass at St Mary’s daily on www.livemass.org. The Mass of the day can be watched for 24hrs and that of the Sunday for the entire week.
Reminder: To receive Holy Communion: to be a Catholic, in state of grace, one-hour fasting.
In the EF liturgy, Holy Communion is received kneeling (unless unable to) and always on the tongue. Thank you in advance.
