Sunday Bulletin 28 Feb 21

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.

Year and month of St Joseph: March is dedicated to the foster father of Our Lord Jesus, with his feast on Friday 19th.

But this extends to the entire year, as the Holy Father Pope Francis has announced a Year of St Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, beginning this past December 8. Read the Apostolic Letter, Patris Corde. Let’s all make it a priority for 2021 to come to a deeper appreciation and devotion to St Joseph. There are many indulgences available throughout the year. We commend to you this prayer composed by one of our own parishioners, which has received an Imprimatur from the Bishop of Portsmouth:

            Royal St Joseph, chosen by God the Father to be His Son’s earthly Father. Look down upon England, Mary’s Dowry. See the House of Nazareth is broken.
Do not look upon this poor sinner and turn away, but through your most powerful intercession, take your heavenly tools and rebuild your Spouse’s House and give it back to Her more resplendent than it was before.
Restore to the Mother of God what is rightfully Hers, so England may once again be a light to the Nations, where Christ the King reigns over us, and His Mother is seated at His right Hand as Our Immaculate Queen.
Glory Be. O Christ the King, reign over us.
Glory Be. O Mary, Immaculate Queen, intercede for us.
Glory Be. O Royal St Joseph, hear us through our Guardian Angel. Amen.

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 astewart@olgseminary.org. Preparation will begin soon after Easter. We are very grateful to His Grace.

Venerable Ignatius Spencer

Archbishop Malcolm McMahon OP of Liverpool has requested that the following message be sent out:

The Venerable Ignatius Spencer CP

It was with great happiness that I heard the news on 20 February 2021 that Fr Ignatius Spencer CP was declared by the catholic Church as having lived a life of heroic virtue and may now be called ‘venerable’. To get this news so soon after the very recent declaration of Sr Elizabeth Prout CP as ‘venerable’ is a remarkable grace to the Passionist Order and to the archdiocese.  These two Victorian Catholics are as relevant to the mission of the church today as they were in their lifetimes. They show us how to reach out beyond ourselves and respond to suffering due to poverty and deprivation.  My prayer is that the shrine at St. Anne’s, Sutton [NB: 18 minutes from St Mary’s Warrington] which harbours the mortal remains of three great Passionists, Blessed Dominic Barberi, Venerable Elizabeth Prout and the now Venerable Ignatius Spencer, will increase as a centre of devotion and prayer in the archdiocese.  All three of these great disciples loved the poor and worked tirelessly for their bodily and spiritual wellbeing. 
Venerable Ignatius, who had left behind a life of privilege, devoted himself tirelessly to visiting the poor, giving food and all his personal possessions to those in need.  His preaching and writings showed him to be a true disciple of Jesus and in his daily life he lived out the passion of our Lord in heroic fashion.  His life of service is a true example to his living relatives, Prince William and Prince Harry, and is to be emulated by us all.
