| Welcome to our First-Time Visitors! |
We are glad to share with you the beauty
and depth of the traditional
Latin Mass. Feel welcome to ask us about silence,
Holy Communion on the tongue, the use of Latin, etc.
Most people here came across this form of the Mass
within the past few years or months.
Like you they were perplexed at first. Now they treasure it.

To receive Holy Communion: one must be a Catholic, in state of grace, one-hour fasting at least. In the EF liturgy, Holy Communion is received kneeling (unless unable to) and always on the tongue. Thank you in advance.
All must dress modestly in church out of reverence for God and of respect for fellow-worshippers. Chest and limbs must be covered down to elbows and knees at least. No sportswear. Sunday best should be worn by all on Sundays and feasts: suit and tie for men and boys, dresses for women and girls. Men keep their heads uncovered within church; women are encouraged to wear a scarf, hat or mantilla. Thank you.
Switch OFF your mobile phone before you enter our church. Letting it ring inside the church gravely disturbs the quiet of the sacred place. Thank you for your consideration.
Safeguarding: If you have concerns about children or vulnerable adults, please contact the Archdiocesan Safeguarding Department on 0151 522 1043 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or speak with Clare Fraser, St Mary’s Safeguarding Officer. Thank you for your awareness.
Mother Elizabeth Prout declared Venerable by Pope Francis: thanks be to God! Given that her community ran St Mary’s School – now Priory Court – for decades, no doubt all of us at St Mary’s and further afield will renew our prayers to God that she might soon be beatified and might intercede in particular for our children and our families. We invite anyone who attended St Mary’s School under the Sisters as pupil or staff to send us their memories and anecdotes.
Educational Project St Mary’s: following last week’s online presentation of the Regina Caeli Academy (www.rcahybrid.org.uk/), would anyone interested in the hoped for upgrade of our educational offer at St Mary’s please email email@example.com? Despite the many restrictions, now is the time to communicate, anticipate and set up a more permanent framework to educate our children as saints. Please tell your friends.
Moving near St Mary’s? Interest was recently expressed to us again by families considering moving to Warrington. We can advise you on preferred locations and local housing market.
Congratulations to our Welsh seminarian Gwilym Evans, FSSP who was admitted to major orders and will be ordained a Subdeacon at our Bavarian seminary on Sat. 13th February.
Congratulations to Baby Thomas Lawrence baptised last week (the youngest of seven children) – and to his parents who so generously welcome life and raise their children in the faith.
Warning: Our Offertory collection has been diminishing over the past month, falling below £800.00 last week. Even when adding the online donations, we are well below the £1,400.00/week needed to cover our weekly expenses including heating, insurance, maintenance, safety features, priests’ support (food, personal allowance, healthcare, car allowance, Government contribution for retirement); admin staff salary including accounting and more. Please bear in mind that if the acquisition of Priory Court was a great step forward, it also means increased expenses. Sadly the Covid restrictions prevent us from using the new building as we would wish yet. But the bills still must be paid by us. We also know that the national and international situation makes the future look very precarious for many of you, our benefactors. While we trust in God’s Providence, we also need to do what we proportionately can to support a busy place of worship and of doctrinal and spiritual teaching such as St Mary’s Shrine, even though we might attend rarely or via LiveMass.net.
Please bear in mind that St Mary’s Shrine receives no financial support from the Archdiocese of Liverpool where we serve, so that each and every expenses is incurred solely by us, including the care of this vast Grade II-listed church building.
Support St Mary’s Shrine: send your donation via our Donate page: https://fssp.co.uk/donate/.

RIP: Fr Calvin Goodwin, FSSP, who taught Frs Verrier, Stewart, Goddard and Phipps at seminary. Born in America of a British mother, Fr Goodwin had lived for a short time in Wimbledon and always treasured his British heritage, including a dry sense of humour.
At our American seminary, he would often pray the Prayer for the Queen after his Low Mass. A highly cultured man and an expert in opera music, he was a frequent guest on a national radio to comment on opera performances. Fr Goodwin was the first Jesuit to join our Fraternity. He had been actively involved in the professional tutorial DVD made in partnership between the FSSP and EWTN. You can watch his 21min presentation of the Traditional Mass (where he quotes Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple!) here: https://youtu.be/JVVXPhcV9_4 .
