Next Young Adults Meeting Sat. 22 December.

PRIORY CAMPAIGN: By the end of next month, a pre-planning application process should hopefully confirm the change of use from ‘Business’ to ‘Community’, enabling our trustees to decide which part of the building(s) to purchase.  Meanwhile, further donations are gratefully received, as we have only 1/3 of the asking price. Contact malleray@fssp.org for any inquiries.

Free booklets on the Servant of God Mother Mary-Joseph of Jesus – Elizabeth Prout, donated by the Sister historian promoting her beatification. Sister asks us to report any favours or miracles granted by God through the intercession of E. Prout. In Stone, Staffordshire, she was converted by Bl. D. Barberi and founded the female branch of the Passionists. Since her community served at St Mary’s Warrington School & Convent until 1929, this is a timely occasion to ask for a miracle for our Priory Campaign! 

Thank you to S. H. who volunteered to repaint some the lavatories and bathrooms at our priory and change the carpeting, following in the footsteps of S. S and E. M. For want of a parish hall, parish kitchen and classrooms, most of our Ground Floor is used weekly for pastoral purposes. Hence the urgent need for our Priory Campaign to succeed and give us adequate space.                                   


New lights in Music Room: brand new set of 30 LED bulbs now fitted in the ceiling of the Music Room. Better lighting for much cheaper. Next target: fixing the heater!

Solemn Polyphonic Requiem: following the inspiring performance of Vittoria’s polyphonic Requiem last Wednesday at St Mary’s, we hope to have the same music played next Friday.

New hymnbooks. We have invested in a new set. Surprisingly light for its dimensions, each blue volume offers a great choice of hymns, and the kyriale (Kyrie, Gloria etc) is included at the end in ‘modern’ notation for easier participation by the congregation.

Welcome to three new Choir members. Contact Fr Verrier for an audition if you would like to join our choir – including Junior choir: iverrier@fssp.org
