Changes of assignment: As expected after our General Chapter last month, priests were re-assigned across our various apostolates. Fr James Mawdsley (who trained in the German-speaking section of our European seminary) goes to Vienna, Austria and will be succeeded in Reading by Fr Seth Phipps. We are sorry to see Fr Phipps go and we assure him – and Fr Mawdsley – of our prayers in their new assignments. Your clergy at St Mary’s remains the same, with Frs de Malleray, Loewenstein and Verrier.
PRIORY CAMPAIGN: PLEASE PRAY!
If we want it to happen, our best asset is PRAYER. 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, North West Coordinator of the National Association of Catholic Families.
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 catholic bookshop, a vestments-sewing workshop and accommodation for retreatants could be added.
We have £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.
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.
Please pray for the success of our summer camps this week (30 girls) in Macclesfield. Our 40 boys had a great time last week!
