Park safely: the fence at the rear of our car park has been damaged by car users. Please do take extra care when parking. Thank you.
Welcome to 5 extra FSSP priests from Scotland, Reading and Switzerland. We will be 8 priests in total staying at St Mary’s Priory between 18th and 20th February for our third annual FSSP-UK clergy gathering. (Due to lack of room, a couple of us will sleep on the floor, which is very good for one’s back, they say.)
Priory Campaign: 8 days ago our pre-planning applications for Community Use of the building(s) received a favourable response from Warrington Borough Council. Since then, the owner informed us that he was not selling the Buttermarket Street building(s) to us anymore. This may be God’s way to show us His Holy will, namely, to buy Priory Court instead.
This latter building stands at the rear of the car park, where the original St Mary’s school built by Pugin used to be. It comprises of three separate units, of which so far we can afford to buy only two. We urgently need benefactors (or investors)
1) to help us secure the third unit and
2) to endow us with a stable monthly income for the upkeep of the new building(s).
Our charitable status exempts us from stamp duty. The purchase cost is £80k per floor (i.e. for 79.31 square meters, or 853 square feet) to use as office; or adding circa £20k as cost of conversion into residential (Warrington Borough Council has granted the change of use to the owner for the entire building). In total, it would seem that one could get an 80 square meter flat from £100k. This includes parking space.
We still have a great opportunity to create a dynamic Catholic hub around our beautiful Pugin church! Wherever you live, please email Fr Rector if you can donate (or invest) money: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please ask Our Lady for her urgent intervention in the Priory Campaign as a decision should be made this week. God bless you.
