Offertory collection and other donations: we are slowly moving towards financial equilibrium. For technical reasons, we hope to have a more accurate assessment of the weekly running costs of St Mary’s Shrine in the New Year. We thank those who have already set a standing order or give to St Mary’s on line. This has two advantages: 1) less time spent by our counters counting cash every week and 2) 1% more money for us (the bank charges 1% of our cash and cheques deposit, but does not charge us for donations received online). Thank you.

Pre-Christmas Clergy Dinner: Thank you to the ladies who kindly lend their skills to cook and set up the table for 12 priests at St Mary’s Priory this Tuesday.

Thank you to all those who supported our celebration of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Protectress of the Unborn last Wednesday.

Young Adults Meeting Sat. 22 December: after the 10am-12noon Adoration and the 12:10pm Holy Mass, pizza lunch at the Presbytery at 1pm and 2pm talk by Fr de Malleray on The formulas of Consecration at Mass; followed by Q&A’s + coffee. Any 18-35 welcome!

Next Meeting: Sat 19th January: excursion to Holywell (North Wales, 45mins from St Mary’s).

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!
