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.

Our Warrington Vocations: Welcome back to our Second Year seminarian Henry. We pray that he might spend a restful time in his family. We also pray for our First Year seminarian David, who was prevented from travelling home this time. We keep our two seminaries in America and Europe in our prayer. Sister Mari Caritas sent her Christmas greetings from America. Let us keep her and her community in our prayer. Lastly, we pray for our young people currently discerning God’s Holy Will for them.

Do NOT share the codes with anyone (unless they are personally known to you as regular Massgoers at St Mary’s).

Tues 5th Jan 1pm-2pm: Blessing of Epiphany Water. Please bring containers filled with water and preferably labelled to your name. Before 12:10pm Mass, leave them for blessing on the bench near the Little Organ. This blessing of water is the most powerful after the Ester Vigil one. Bring your container(s) back home for private devotional use all year long.

To date, Covid-19 vaccination is optional civilly and morally. No one should be forced to take it. Furthermore, even though the production of one such vaccine be proven to have no connection with the “abominable crime of abortion” (Vatican Council II, Gaudium et Spes, 51), UK mortality rate so far doesn’t justify more stringent precautions against Covid than against flu. In addition, the Government and vaccine producers have warned against negative side-effects including serious risks to pregnant women and persons with severe disabilities. Classical moral theology teaches that remote material cooperation in evil (in this case, for vaccination with abortion-connected vaccines) could be justified if: 1) There must be no realistic alternative; 2) One must make known the moral objections; 3) There must be a sufficiently grave, proportionate reason. Since the UK mortality rate has not exploded so far compared with past years, and since a vaccine totally free from connection with abortion is to be hoped, conditions 1) and 3) are not met in the present UK situation. Currently one might choose to take a vaccine free from any connection with abortion if the threat of Covid contamination were felt greater than the known and unknown side-effects of Covid vaccines.
