PRIORY CAMPAIGN: PLEASE PRAY!
New dedicated page HERE – with all updates, pictures and links.
If we want it to happen, our best asset is PRAYER. Prominent Catholics have lent their support to our project: Jacob Rees-Mogg MP; Archbishop Malcolm McMahon OP; Viscountess Ashbrook, of nearby Arley Hall; SPUC Chairman Robin Haig; Robert Colquhoun of 40 Days for Life; Dr Joseph Shaw, Chairman of the Latin Mass Society, and Maria Haynes, North West Coordinator of the National Association of Catholic Families.
We have two months to raise £1.5m to and buy back the former Priory and St Mary’s School next door (total Net Internal Area of 1,383.19 Sq m or 14,891 Sq ft.) plus an extra £280k for estimated conversion of offices to pastoral use. This is a unique opportunity to endow St Mary’s with the space we urgently need: parish hall, music room, clergy offices, and classrooms. In addition, a pro-life office, a publishing company, a catholic bookshop, a vestments-sewing workshop and accommodation for retreatants could be added.
Thank you so much to all of you who have contacted us over the past few weeks to pledge a donation. We have £301,145.00 pledged. Just as we expect this project to benefit souls even at a distance from Warrington, we seek support from far and wide, not only among our local congregation. In our times of growing adversity, the Priory Campaign aims at building a strongly Catholic community. Please speak to your friends about this historic opportunity, and pray for generous benefactors.
At this stage, we request pledges rather than actual donations. Kindly specify amount, currency and confirm bank transfer by 15 September. Our Campaign bank account details will be advertised by early September.
Girls Summer Camp: great pics on our Flickr page:
Led by 4 adult young women, with a priest and seminarians from the FSSP, 25 young girls are spending a wonderful week holiday near Macclesfield in the Peak District (see picture above). The week before, FSSP clerics accompanied 40 boys on another summer camp.
Altogether this year, the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter in the UK & Ireland will have organised memorable Catholic holidays for 70 (including 65 children and 5 young adults).
Watch this space and book early for next year!
Vocation discernment: Three young men from Surrey and Ireland spent three days last week at our Warrington Priory to discern God’s calling. They heard conferences by priests, served Holy Mass and had devotions and chats together. Please pray for them and for many more.
Prayer for Vocations: How to make your prayer for vocations even more effective? Ask Eileen from the West Midlands, Peter from Hampshire, Siobhan from London and Matthew from Oxfordshire – who will be enrolled in our 6000-strong international prayer network, the Confraternity of St Peter, on the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, next 22 August. As they did, visit www.fssp.org/en/help-us/confraternity-of-saint-peter/.
UK Vocations: Congratulations to John, from the South of England, who was admitted to our American seminary and will begin formation next month.
Thank you to our seminarians Matthew, Emmanuel, Melvin, Gideon and Miklos who are helping us in various capacities over the summer – despite very basic accommodation due to clerical overpopulation at St Mary’s Priory (not a myth in this instance).
LMS pilgrimage to Walsingham 23-26 August: walk 59 miles from Ely to Walsingham with the Traditional Mass, the Rosary, traditional devotions, chants, hymns and songs, to do honour to Our Lady of Walsingham and to pray for the conversion of England. Info/bookings: lms.org.uk
Baronius hand missals: Another 30 copies have arrived! Please bring £37.00 to get yours. Do write your name clearly inside and outside, since similar copies are used by nearly 70 members of our congregation.
Pro-Life: As she explained to us when speaking at our pro-life fete at St Mary’s, Alina Dulgheriu is the young mum whose baby was saved through the witness of a pro-lifer outside the Ealing abortuary. In retaliation, the same facility managed to have a buffer zone enforced. Alina is challenging this for the sake of other mums in her situation. She lost her appeal case in the High Court against Ealing Council’s imposition of a buffer zone (PSPO). Freedoms are being taken away and she (Be here for me group) needs funding to pay for the legal expenses and the cost of mounting another appeal. People can donate via: https://uk.gofundme.com alinalegalfund.
St Mary’s Warrington agreed to send £300.00 from our Pro life fund.
Watch Holy Mass at St Mary’s daily on www.livemass.org. The Mass of the day can be watched for 24hrs and that of the Sunday for the entire week.
Reminder: To receive Holy Communion: to be a Catholic, in state of grace, one-hour fasting.
In the EF liturgy, Holy Communion is received kneeling (unless unable to) and always on the tongue. Thank you in advance.
