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 ladies. 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.


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.


500 weekly visits to St Mary’s Shrine Church: half on weekdays and half on Sundays.


Welcome to Deacon Gwilym Evans, FSSP: Ordained a deacon in May, Deacon Evans studied Arabic and Hebrew at Cambridge, during which time he converted from Anglicanism to the Catholic Faith. He then worked for five years in the classical music industry, before joining our seminary in Bavaria. He is a Companion of the Order of Malta and has been very active with them in helping the poor and the sick. He was assigned to St Mary’s on pastoral placement until Easter. We assure him of our prayers during this last stage of his seven-year formation to the Sacred Priesthood.


Church boiler soon mended: new parts are on their way. Seat below the wall-mounted heaters if feeling cold. Thank you for your patience (and penance!).


Thank you for helping us through the Offertory collection and standing orders. While the overall income is still far from covering the actual expenses of the Shrine, it is comforting to see how generously you respond. Some of our worshippers are also involved in other parish communities (Polish, Syro-Malabarese or Ordinariate): we thank them for supporting St Mary’s Shrine as well, where they benefit from daily Mass, Confession and other spiritual goods. Lastly we thank our benefactors who pray with us remotely via LiveMass.net. Some of them live far away and yet, they have chosen to donate online to St Mary’s Shrine according to our needs and to their means. God bless you all.

Support St Mary’s Shrine: send your donation via our Donate page: https://fssp.co.uk/donate/. Ask us for a Gift Aid form to increase your donation by 25% at no extra cost to you. Gift Aid envelopes can be obtained from our Secretariat. Standing orders are easier and quicker for us to process than cash: Lloyds Bank ;

Helping poor Souls out of Purgatory: last 10 days.

Gain Plenary Indulgence for Holy Souls any eight days this month – which need not be consecutive – by visiting a cemetery and praying for those who have died.

Conditions for plenary indulgence: 1. Only one plenary indulgence can be granted per day. 2. It is necessary to be in the state of grace, at least by completion of the work. 3. Freedom from attachment to sin, even venial sin, is necessary; otherwise the indulgence is only partial. (By this is meant attachment to a particular sin, not sin in general.) 4. Holy Communion must be received each time the indulgence is sought. 5. Prayers must be recited for the traditional intentions of the Holy Father on each day the indulgence is sought. No particular prayers are prescribed. One Our Father and one Hail Mary suffice, or other suitable prayers. 6. One must be absolved in confession the fortnight before or following.

Consult online official Manual of Indulgences here: https://d2y1pz2y630308.cloudfront.net/3189/documents/2018/4/Indulgences_v2.pdf.


Confraternity pins arrived from the USA: £4.00.
