Cardinal R. Burke’s Intentions

The King Family


Ask St Joseph! Ahead of his feast, let us all pray a novena to St Joseph. We will pray the Litanies of St Joseph after Mass daily. We start today, Sunday 11, and will end on Monday 19 included.

Communal intention: funding for a Shrine pastoral Centre. As our activities grow in number and diversity, the need for dedicated spaces also increases. Let us pray for benefactors and for a smooth administrative process to acquire or build St Mary’s pastoral centre.

Please join in the novena even from home or work if you cannot attend Mass here daily.

  1. He made him the lord of His household, 
    R. And prince over all His possessions.

Let Us Pray.

O God, Who in Thine ineffable providence didst choose Blessed Joseph to be the spouse of Thy most Holy Mother, grant that as we venerate him as our protector on earth, we may deserve to have him as our intercessor in Heaven, Thou Who livest and reignest forever and ever. R. Amen. 

Young Adults Group Sat. 17 March, 1-4pm: Talk by Fr Loewenstein on “What is truth?”

Young Adults & Professionals 18-35 Group
All welcome: bring your friends along

Saturday 17 March 2018
Usual Schedule:
1pm-3pm/4pm: pizza lunch followed by talk and discussion on:

“What is truth?” 

Such was the question asked by Pontius Pilate to the Lord Jesus, after He had affirmed: “To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.” (John 18:38) 

Is there such a thing as truth? How does it differ from opinion, and from error? Can one be sincerely mistaken? If truth exists, how can one find it? How to share it while respecting the freedom of others? 
Come and reflect on this important topic, led by Fr Loewenstein, FSSP.
Do arrive earlier if you can for: 
10am-12noon Eucharistic Adoration with Confessions
12:10pm Low Mass


5 New Deacons: Please pray for the 5 FSSP Subdeacons to be ordained to the Diaconate Saturday 17th at Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary, Denton USA.

The box sets of GIFT AID envelopes for the new tax year will be available for collection shortly. Anyone who is a tax payer and a regular user of the occasional Gift Aid envelopes (those left on the benches) and would prefer their own set of dated, Sunday Gift Aid envelopes, should contact Jane Wright in the Shrine Office warrington@fssp.org


Caution – Workmen! Over the coming week work will begin within the church to bring the building up to Fire Safety standards and ultimately make it safer for us. This will involve tower scaffolding inside the church and areas may need to be cordoned off during the day. Work has been planned to keep disruption to a minimum. Please respect any safety notices and instructions that may be given. Thank you.


Lenten Talks, given by Fr Loewenstein, Wednesdays 7pm preceded by Mass at 6.15pm.


Stations of the Cross at 1pm every Friday during Lent lead by one of the priests.

 Holy Communion Reminder:


To receive Holy Communion, one must be 1) a Roman Catholic 2) in state of grace (no grave sin unabsolved on one’s conscience) and 3) have fasted for at least one hour.


In the traditional Latin rite used at St Mary’s, Holy Communion is received kneeling (if one can), and in any case on the tongue: thank you very much in advance.

Please hold Communion plate against your throat if no server is available.


Please use the entire width of the Communion rail, from one wall of the church all the way to the opposite wall, avoiding any gaps. This will make distribution quicker. Thank you.


Watch Holy Mass at St Marys daily on www.livemass.org. The Mass of the day can be watched for 24hrs and that of the Sunday for the entire week.
