PRIORY CAMPAIGN hits national news:
Full page article in the Catholic Herald’s printed issue this weekend! Click on title to read online article How will faithful Catholics thrive under secularism? Try the ‘Village Option’.
Prominent Catholics have lent their support to our project: Jacob Rees-Mogg MP; Archbishop Malcolm McMahon OP; Viscountess Ashbrook, of nearby Arley Hall; SPUC Chairman Robin Haig; Robert Colquhoun of 40 Days for Life; Dr Joseph Shaw, Chairman of the Latin Mass Society, and Maria Haynes whose message we publish below:
“As the North West Coordinator of the National Association of Catholic Families I have seen first-hand that the clergy at St Mary’s Warrington cares for families. Despite their limited facilities currently, the Rector of St Mary’s Shrine and his fellow priests have welcomed our association to hold our Family Days at St Mary’s so that we can help and support Catholic families as they strive to remain faithful to the teachings of the Church on marriage and the family. During these Family Days, one of the priests has been very happy to give catechetical instruction to our teenage children and join us in the social element of our day, making themselves available to speak to and offer spiritual advice to parents.
The priests also offer catechism days, activities for young adults and spiritual advice for all parents generally. The church is large and beautiful, but a shrine hall and classrooms are needed for more families to come and benefit from their talks and conferences. Families coming with vans will appreciate the improved parking facilities if, as I hope, their Priory Campaign is successful. Those buildings next door look very fitting and there would be space for children to play. But there is little time. Please pledge whatever you can, and in any case, pray for success. We Catholic families in England urgently need such havens of orthodoxy and piety.”
Dear Friends, we have three months to raise £1.5m 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.) 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 vestments-sewing workshop and accommodation for retreatants could be added.
We have already £300,000.00 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.
Please pray for the success of our summer camps this week (40 boys) and next (30 girls) in Macclesfield.
Please note 2 extra 6pm Masses this week on Mon 6th and Fri 10th August.
ASSUMPTION of OUR LADY – Wed 15 August
A HOLYDAY of OBLIGATION.
Every able Catholic must attend Holy Mass on that day under penalty of grave sin.
Masses at St Mary’s: 6.45am; 12:10pm; 7:00pm
If you plan to travel that day, check online in advance where you will fulfil the obligation. Let us celebrate the glorious entering of our Mother in heaven!
Novena in preparation for the Assumption
From 6th to 14th Aug. included we will pray after Mass the Collect of the Assumption. Our special intention is the success of the Priory Campaign (raising £1.5m by 18 October 2018):
Almighty and Eternal God, who hast assumed the body and soul of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of Thy Son, to celestial glory: grant, we beseech Thee, that always minded toward heavenly things, we may be sharers in the same glory. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who livest and reignest with Thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.
Congratulations to Clare Fraser who has completed her training as new Safeguarding Officer at St Mary’s Shrine. Clare is part of the Bl. James Bell Parish Safeguarding Team.
Would you like to lead a decade of the Rosary, or more, as part of our daily Shrine devotion? Please speak to Fr Phipps or email him: email@example.com
