All must dress modestly in church out of reverence for God and of respect for fellow-worshippers. Women are encouraged to wear a veil or mantilla. Tops must cover bodies down to elbows and skirts at least below knees. No shorts, no t-shirts, no leggings. In addition, on Sundays and feasts Sunday best should be worn by all: i.e. suits or jackets and ties for gentlemen, dresses for ladies. Thank you.

We love having young children around in church and we thank parents for inculcating their little ones the respect owed to the House of God, and to secure recollection for fellow-worshippers. Parents are welcome to give exuberant children a break in the Narthex or outdoors if needed, especially during the Canon of the Mass and homily.

To receive Holy Communion: one must be a Catholic, in the state of grace, one-hour fasting at least. In the traditional liturgy, Holy Communion is received kneeling (unless unable to) and always on the tongue. Thank you in advance. Kindly switch OFF your mobile phone before you enter the church.

The British Monarchy

HM Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, 2-5 June:

www.royal.uk/platinum-jubilee-central-weekend.

We will offer special prayers for the Sovereign and country (cf Baronius p. 975). As the Jubilee Sunday coincides with Whitsunday, we will pray a Novena of preparation for Pentecost to request of God the Holy Ghost an outpouring of the Seven Gifts for Queen and Country. Thus after every public Mass from Fri 27th May until Sat 4th June, we will pray together the Veni Sancte Spiritus (Baronius p. 36).

Veni, Sancte Spiritus, reple tuorum corda fidelium, et tui amoris in eis ignem accende.

V. Emitte Spiritum tuum et creabuntur;

R. Et renovabis faciem terrae. 

Oremus: Deus, qui corda fidelium Sancti Spiritus illustratione docuisti: da nobis in eodem Spiritu recta sapere, et de eius semper consolatione gaudere. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

Come, Holy Ghost, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and kindle in them the fire of Thy love.

         V. Send forth Thy Spirit and they shall be created

         R. And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.

Let us pray: O God, Who taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant that, by the gift of the same Spirit, we may be always truly wise, and ever rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Happy Eastertide! Thank you to all of you who contributed to the spiritual and logistical success of the past Easter Triduum: liturgy and music; flowers and church cleaning; LiveMass and brass polishing; Clergy meals; Vigil Fire, collections etc.

All must dress modestly in church out of reverence for God and of respect for fellow-worshippers. Women are encouraged to wear a veil or mantilla. Tops must cover bodies down to elbows and skirts at least below knees. No shorts, no t-shirts, no tights. In addition, on Sundays and feasts Sunday best should be worn by all: i.e. suits or jackets and ties for gentlemen, dresses for ladies. Thank you.

We love having young children around in church and we thank parents for inculcating their little ones the respect owed to the House of God, and to secure recollection for fellow-worshippers. Parents are welcome to give exuberant children a break in the Narthex or outdoors if needed, especially during the Canon of the Mass and homily.

To receive Holy Communion: one must be a Catholic, in the state of grace, one-hour fasting at least. In the traditional liturgy, Holy Communion is received kneeling (unless unable to) and always on the tongue. Thank you in advance.

Kindly switch OFF your mobile phone before you enter the church.


Safeguarding: If you have concerns about children or vulnerable adults, please contact the Archdiocesan Safeguarding Department: m.robson@rcaol.org.uk or 0151 522 1013, or speak with Clare Fraser, St Mary’s Safeguarding Officer. Thank you for your awareness.

2 new books arrived at bookshop (open Sun 12:30pm-1pm): Ego Eimi-It is I, Falling in Eucharistic Love, new edition of Fr de Malleray’s book, by Sophia Institute Press, discounted at £10.

Ego Eimi – It Is I

Falling in Eucharistic Love

We are delighted to announce that this book is now available again in a brand new edition by Sophia Institute Press.

Tip: Safe and easy purchase from the publisher’s website is much more advantageous to the Catholic publisher and author (than on Amazon who retains nearly every profit and pays publisher and author a tiny fraction).

Or see discounts below.

Listen to or watch interview of author here.


Belief in the Real Presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist has declined drastically over the past fifty years. For the love of the Lord and the good of souls, how can we help reverse this trend?

Whether you are a believer or struggling, this book will help you develop a personal relationship with Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament. In these pages, Fr. Armand de Malleray looks afresh at traditional Church teaching on the Holy Eucharist. He demonstrates that it is implemented with precision, strength, and beauty in the time-tested Traditional Latin Mass missal.

In his engaging and accessible style, Fr. de Malleray explains the significance of each precious detail of the traditional Eucharistic liturgy, from the opening words of the Preparatory Prayers, “Judge me, O God,” to the importance of punctuating the words of Consecration, to the meaning of the celebrant’s genuflections before and after the elevation.

Fr. de Malleray explains essential doctrines such as transubstantiation, the concomitant presence of Christ’s Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, and the nature of the Eucharistic fragments. He also describes in moving detail Our Lady’s role in drawing us closer to her Eucharistic Son.

Replete with real-life stories, modern-day references, and cultural and historical reflections, Ego Eimi will inspire you to worship the Real Presence as an ardent believer, orient you to the invisible realities occurring, and foster a greater love for our Eucharistic Lord in your heart. You will learn to treasure the Holy Eucharist more deeply through Scripture, Church teachings, and philosophical reasoning. Experience the Eucharistic Fire: embrace the Real Presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and adore God’s gratuitous love.

Guided by the Church in which our Eucharistic Savior dwells, you will also learn how belief in the Real Presence:

  • Surpasses other forms of God’s presence
  • Is the central mystery and core tenet of our Faith
  • Manifests God’s divine mercy as reflected in the prayers of the traditional Mass
  • Trains us in contrition and prepares us for a favorable eternal judgment
  • Deepens our love so that each time we worship will feel like our first, last, and only Mass

The Catechism Explained

by Fr. Spirago, published by Mediatrix Press:

Brand new hardback copies now available for discounted purchase at St Mary’s shrine bookshop, Warrington: £20.00 per copy (instead of £28.00 on publisher’s website and £33.00 on Amazon).

Opening times: 12:25pm-1:00pm every Sunday. Pay with cash only, thank you.

At long last, the Catechism explained by Fr. Spirago is back in print. This edition is not a facsimile, but a full reprint with increased font size, and very minor updates to antiquated English. Some of the numbering has been redrafted to avoid confusion.

We already have so many catechisms, what do we need of another? We indeed have in abundance catechisms and religious manuals which appeal only to the intellect; books that do not aim at the warmth of expression and the fervent, persuasive eloquence which appeal to the heart, the force and vivifying power which affect the will through the influence of the Holy Spirit.

This Catechism aims at cultivating all the three powers of the soul: the intellect, the emotions, and the will. It does not therefore content itself with mere definitions. The idea in it is not to teach men to philosophize about religion, but to make them good Christians who will delight in their faith. Consequently questions of scholastic theology, doctrines debated among theologians, are either omitted altogether or merely receive a passing mention.

In this catechism, Fr. Spirago has endeavored to divest religious teaching of the appearance of learning, and to present it in a popular and simple form. Technical terms, in which almost all religious manuals abound, even those intended for children, are carefully eliminated from his pages since, while useful and necessary for seminarians and theologians, they are out of place in a book intended for the laity. Popular manuals of religion ought to be couched in plain and simple language, like that used by Our Lord and the apostles, easy to understand. What we need is something that will touch the heart and influence the will, not merely cram the mind with knowledge.

“The Catechism Explained by Spirago embodies the Catechism of the Council of Trent, yet contains fuller discussions for each point in the language that was developed by the Church, saints and theologians throughout time. Rather than being locked into a specific age or decade, this catechism is an explication of the faith in an almost timeless manner. It is a catechism that any subsequent generation could read and learn the essence of the Catholic faith.”
