It is with sadness that we announce that due to redundancy Michael Wynne is to step down as Director of Music as of 26 October 2018. Michael has always demonstrated huge dedication and commitment and we wish to express our appreciation for all that Michael has contributed. We wish him all the very best for the future.
We look forward to communicating next week on the next step for St Mary’s music.
We have just over 1/3 of the asking price: further donations are gratefully received. The vendor visited us here last week and will make a decision this week. Please pray for an affordable agreement.

On all the days from November 1st through November 8th inclusive, a plenary indulgence, applicable only to the Poor Souls in Purgatory, is granted to those who visit a cemetery and pray even if only mentally for the departed. There must be one visit for each day one seeks to gain the indulgence; one visit will not apply for several days. Any public cemetery with Christian tombs will do. The nearest one is 5 minutes walk from St Mary’s: St Elphin’s, Church Street, WA1 2TL.
- Only one plenary indulgence can be granted per day.
2. It is necessary to be in the state of grace, at least by completion of the work.
3. Freedom from attachment to sin, even venial sin, is necessary; otherwise the indulgence is only partial. (By this is meant attachment to a particular sin, not sin in general.)
4. Holy Communion must be received each time the indulgence is sought.
5. Prayers must be recited for the intentions of the Holy Father on each day the indulgence is sought. No particular prayers are prescribed. One Our Father and one Hail Mary suffice, or other suitable prayers.
6. One must be absolved in confession the fortnight before or following.
912 Requiem Masses in 24hrs!
Last week we received the yearly statistics of the FSSP. We have 304 priests (460 members in total). Since each of our priests will have offered three Holy Masses of Requiem on 2nd November, this makes 912 Holy Masses for poor souls in Purgatory offered within one day, starting in New Zealand & Australia, following with Europe and Nigeria, reaching America and Colombia, ending later that day in California.
Every hour then, 38 FSSP priests offered the Divine Victim for the holy souls of our members, Confraternity members, benefactors and holy souls in general.
