Sunday Bulletin 12 September 2021

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. Find out more on lms.org.uk/faqs

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 safeguarding@rcaol.co.uk, or speak with Clare Fraser, St Mary’s Safeguarding Officer. Thank you for your awareness.


Can you give 1 hour of your time to St Mary’s Shrine? With about 100 penitents and 500 visitors per week (250 on Sunday and about the same during the week), St Mary’s Shrine is becoming busy. Please take and fill printed form when next at church. Thank you.

You can also open form here as Word document.

Your Shrine clergy is grateful to you for your involvement, which helps us give more time to our specifically priestly tasks such as prayer, preparing and offering the liturgy; study and preparing homilies, articles and talks; hearing confessions and giving spiritual direction (not only in Warrington by every other weekend in Bedford). Also, for information, the list above does not include ongoing services and ministries by lay people and clergy such as Shrine administration e.g. collection counting, Mass intentions; and Shrine communication (website, Facebook, Mailchimp, newsletter); other commitments such as Juventutem London, Vocations, occasional retreats, FSSP matters, Dowry Magazine etc.

Feel welcome to add comments, suggestions and further offers below.

Kindly put this form into Collection basket or through mail slot in Front Door of Presbytery.


Our Archbishop publicly supported St Mary’s Warrington in the latest issue of the archdiocesan magazine: “In Warrington we are fortunate to have the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter which was founded by Pope St John Paul II. They conduct their liturgy according to the pre-conciliar rites and offer pastoral care to those who choose that way of worship.” Archbishop McMahon knows well our community whom he visits yearly. However, prayer is very much needed for many other Catholic faithful attracted to the usus antiquior and currently without access to it.

Continuous Rosary Project for the FSSP’s ministry and its members: Go to www.fssp.de/rosarium and register, and sign up for a slot by clicking (please note: times are Central European – calculate accordingly).

We pray for our Holy Father and for all the bishops, as well as all those in authority in the Church who will have to make significant decisions regarding the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter in the near future. We pray for all the priests and seminarians of the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter, that they may continue to carry out their ministry in the Church with fidelity, reverence and obedience, giving guidance to the faithful through a clear ecclesial and humble attitude. We pray for all the faithful in our apostolates and for all the people attached to the traditional Mass, that they will not lose heart, but will be able to accept this time of trial and, with the help of God’s grace, come out of it stronger.

COMMUNAL SHRINE INTENTIONS: Consider offering your usual stipend for the following weekly Mass intentions, otherwise offered without a stipend: All St Mary’s Faithful; All St Mary’s penitents; FSSP seminarians or Clergy. Please write one of these intentions on the Mass envelope, insert your stipend and put it in the collection basket. Thank you.

HOW MUCH DOES A MASS COST: Holy Mass stipends do not pay for the infinite merits of the Sacrifice of the Mass, but for the sustenance of the clergy offering it. While our priests might offer Holy Mass without a stipend or with a smaller one, ten pounds (£10.00) is considered customary. Each priest retains the full amount of the stipend allocated for the Mass he offers on a given day; however no priest may retain more than one stipend per day, even if offering more than one Mass that day. Thank you.
