COVID: Please observe social distancing, sanitizing and one-way system as signed, and kindly cover your face with a mantilla, scarf or mask unless exempt.


  • To receive Holy Communion: one must be a Catholic, in state of grace, one-hour fasting at least. In the EF liturgy, Holy Communion is received kneeling (unless unable to) and always on the tongue. Thank you in advance.
  • Modesty in church: please cover your bodies at least down to elbows and below knees; no tight or see-through garments.

Access: Make sure to park in our TWO car parks, both of them adjacent to the church.

  • Our lesser known car park is easier to access and to exit: when driving along St Mary’s Church (on your left) on Buttermarket Street, turn left immediately before the Porter’s Ales House pub, into Priory Court car park, and walk through the pedestrian gate on your left into the back garden of the presbytery towards St Mary’s church.
  • Our better known car park is accessed via Smith Street, a cul-de-sac off Mersey Street immediately on your left before The Borough Arms pub, and to the end of Smith Street through the gates and into the car park.

OFFERTORY COLLECTION at the END of EVERY Mass, daily: a steward will be holding the collection basket by the Porch door as you exit, for you kindly to drop your offering.

Your financial support is greatly appreciated, since St Mary’s Shrine and community do not receive any money from the Liverpool Archdiocese where we serve. The cost of running St Mary’s is an estimated £1,700.00 per WEEK (including priests’ allowance and healthcare, car allowance and building maintenance).

You can send your donation to St Mary’s Shrine via our Donate page: https://fssp.co.uk/donate/. Ask us for a Gift Aid form to increase your donation by 20% at no extra cost to you. Gift Aid envelopes can be obtained from our Secretariat. Standing orders are easier and quicker for us to process than cash:

Prayer intentions:

  • for our sick: John Marechal, Hilda Creagan, John Sunderland (cancer);
  • thanksgiving for a former member of our congregation, Miss Raya C., now Sister Mary Charity, who became a novice at a convent in America on 12th September after seven months of postulancy: “The postulants process into church dressed as brides. The wedding dress symbolizes the totality of the gift which each postulant is making of herself. Like a bride, each postulant makes a spousal gift: a total gift of self to the beloved, Jesus Christ.”
  • thanksgiving for the happy birth of Elisabetta, sixth child of Antonello and Suzanne Mary Mosca last 31st August.

Priestly Ordination of Deacon Roger Gilbride, FSSP (back in New Zealand before Easter 2020 after his pastoral stage here at St Mary’s): Sat. 3rd October, Auckland, New Zealand, by Bishop Denis Browne, Bishop emeritus of the Hamilton diocese. A live-video link should be available via www.fssp.nz. We hope then-Fr Gilbride will offer a First Mass here this year.

Last seven days to contribute to the spiritual bouquet for Deacon Gilbride by us at St Mary’s. Put in the basket in St Mary’s Porch an anonymous note with the prayers you pledge to offer for his intentions, for example: five decades of the Holy Rosary; or Litany of Loreto; or one hour of Eucharistic adoration; or attending one weekday Holy Mass, etc. Deadline for bringing your prayer note: Sunday 20th September 7:00pm.


Volunteering: Can you help with cleaning the church, car parks, Priory Court rooms/toilets? More specialised assistance is also envisaged for: cooking for clergy, cleaning Presbytery, management of buildings, fundraising, maintenance, light admin work etc. As St Mary’s Community increases, so do our needs for help. Thank you for getting involved. Let us do more for God and souls.


Maundy Thursday Homily on the Sacred Priesthood was our peak live audience on LiveMass with 1,754 households connected. Listen to the nine-minute homily by Fr Alex Stewart, FSSP, freshly uploaded here: vimeo.com/455615905


Priory Campaign: With the summer recess behind us, we are now going to be able to update our fundraising figure. A rough estimate seems to indicate that your prayers and generosity might soon allow us to complete the purchase of Priory Court (Unit 1) before the mid-October deadline. We will soon communicate on this and on the plans and costs for the conversion work of the three units.
