All must dress modestly in church out of reverence for God and of respect for fellow-worshippers. Sunday best should be worn by all on Sundays and feasts: suit and tie for men and boys, dresses for ladies. Men keep their heads uncovered within church; women are encouraged to wear a scarf, hat or mantilla.

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 our 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.


Pope Francis has confirmed the liturgical identity of the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter by decree dated 11th Feb. Deo gratias for such a response from heaven to prayers.
