|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 firstname.lastname@example.org, or speak with Clare Fraser, St Mary’s Safeguarding Officer. Thank you for your awareness.
Confirmations: our Archbishop Malcolm McMahon OP of Liverpool kindly agreed to confer the Sacrament of Confirmation at St Mary’s on Saturday 10th July 2021, 3:00pm. Candidates should contact Fr Stewart: email@example.com. Preparation will begin soon after Easter. We are very grateful to His Grace.
Ash Wednesday 17th February. Day of FAST (one full meal a day and up to two snacks not amounting to another full meal, for any Catholic aged 18-59 unless pregnant or sick) and ABSTINENCE (no meat for any Catholic aged 14+).
Come to holy Mass and receive the blessed ashes (not applied upon the forehead this year but spread upon the head as anti-Covid precaution): a powerful sacramental to begin our preparation for the redemptive Passion of Our Lord.
Bring by Tue 16 Feb 12noon any blessed PALMS from last year to be burnt into ashes.
Mother Elizabeth Prout declared Venerable by Pope Francis: thanks be to God! Given that her community ran St Mary’s School – now Priory Court – let us pray that she might intercede in particular for our children and our families.
Educational Project St Mary’s: Thank you for your interest in upgrading our educational offer at St Mary’s. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org. 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. Please also visit www.rcahybrid.org.uk/.
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.

Welcome to our Fourth Year seminarian Miklos (pronounce MIK-LOSH, Hungarian for the name Nicholas) who is beginning his pastoral stage at St Mary’s until the summer. Miklos discerned his vocation to the priesthood while completing a doctorate in Computing at Imperial College London. Until two weeks ago he was based at our international seminary in Bavaria, together with two more FSSP seminarians from the UK, Gwilym and David. Miklos knows St Mary’s Shrine well as he stayed here before on retreat and apostolate, and also helped at our Summer Camps in the Peak District. We welcome him wholeheartedly and assure him of our prayer for the second half of his formation to the sacred priesthood.
Pray for our Sick: Sue Shovelton, Michael Meadows, M. Hawley, Theresa Reynard, Hilda Creagan, John Sunderland.
