All must dress modestly in church out of reverence for God and of respect for fellow-worshippers. Kindly switch OFF your mobile phone before you enter the church. Thank you in advance.
Safeguarding: If you have concerns about children or vulnerable adults, please contact the Archdiocesan Safeguarding Department: firstname.lastname@example.org or 0151 522 1013, or speak with Clare Fraser, St Mary’s Safeguarding Officer. Thank you for your awareness.
Please keep lights on all day in Narthex and Porch,
but doors shut from Nave to any other part of the church including WCs. Thank you.
THANK YOU to all of you who helped in various ways to make this Easter Triduum 2023 a success: liturgies, chant and music, church and grounds cleaning, church flowering, clergy cooking, LiveMass and more. Kindly save non urgent matters for next 17th April onward as the clergy will be fewer during Easter week.
May we remind you that the Easter collections are not retained by St Mary’s clergy for private use but are used instead for the ongoing expenses of the Shrine. Thank you for your support.
Juventutem Warrington on Sat 15th April: walk in the Delamere Forest. Join our young adults for monthly trek, chat, picnic. For 18-35. Cf facebook.com/juventutem.warrington. Contact email@example.com.
Congratulations to our parishioner Henry Walker who became President of the International Juventutem Federation: http://juventutem.org/.
Posted on by secretary
The Juventutem International Federation is pleased to announce that Henry Walker (England) succeeds Bertalan Kiss (Hungary) as President and John Paul Makilya (Kenya, New York) succeeds Monica Clarke (USA) as Secretary. Cosimo Marti (Switzerland, Italy) stays on as Treasurer as does Fr Armand de Malleray, FSSP (UK) as Chaplain. We are grateful to all at the Bureau, and in our local groups for their past and current involvement at the service of the sanctification of the young according to the Roman traditions of the Church.
Please visit the pages of our various chapters to communicate and book for the forthcoming events, notably: the Pilgrimage of Christendom from Paris to Chartres on the weekend of Pentecost; the annual Summer Weekend in the UK (Ampleforth Abbey, Yorkshire, 21-23 July 2023); and WYD (see below).
World Youth Day: Lisbon 2-6 August 2023
Whereas the uncertainty affecting the celebration of the traditional Latin liturgy precludes participation on the same scale as at previous World Youth Days, Juventutem will be present in Lisbon. Adequate venue has been secured in the centre of the capital. Doctrinal and spiritual conferences, and liturgies, will be held daily. Please note that Juventutem will take no booking of any kind. Pilgrims must secure their travel, accommodation, meals and any such arrangements separately from Juventutem. The location and schedule will be advertised on Juventutem medias in time before WYD begins.

Picture below: Fr de Malleray wrote: Thank you to all the peaceful witnesses to the sacredness of unborn life. It was an honour to pray with you outside the Brixton abortuary on the feast of Archangel Gabriel who, the following day, was commemorated as conveying God’s proposal to the Immaculate Virgin Mary. Et Verbum caro factum est. God chose to be conceived and born of a woman to save all men from sin.

Shrine expenses grow quicker than income. This is not surprising since our parishioners are affected by the economic difficulties. However, if you are in a position to contribute personally or to alert benefactors on our needs, even though they don’t live in Warrington, please share our bank account details below with them.
Thank you for helping us through the Offertory collection and standing orders. Should any parishioner
be in serious financial difficulty, let them contact the Shrine clergy confidentially.
