A MESSAGE FROM THE CATHOLIC HERALD 

24th March 2020

 

As there will be no public Masses for an indefinite period starting this weekend and an increasing number of people are self-isolating there will undoubtedly be a substantial number of your parishioners who will be unable to get to Church for several weeks. To help them follow the Mass, daily prayers, reading, etc. at home, and also keep up with the weekly church news we are offering free access to Magnificat online, and for those who would like the Print Edition there is a special one-off 4-month subscription to Magnificat and/or a 3-month subscription to The Catholic Herald at substantially discounted and affordable prices to ensure that the maximum number of people can take advantage.

So that as many people as possible can take advantage of the free and/or discounted offers can you please make your parishioners aware of these options and how to order in any way you are able? They can only be ordered by telephoning Margaret on 020 7448 3607 or Paul on 020 7448 3618 between 9.30am and 5pm Monday to Friday.

Below are special prices to help people over this difficult period and orders will need to be placed before Easter:

Magnificat 4 months April to July (including the Holy Week special issue) for £14

Catholic Herald 3 months (13 weeks) for £25

Both Catholic Herald and Magnificat (as above) £36

For free access to Magnificat online, log in at www.magnificat.com/free

Although we do expect that many people will still go to Church for personal prayer, we do hope that these special concessions will help people who cannot get there, and also those who want to follow the Masses, prayers, readings, etc. feel that they can still share in the life of the Church.

 

Thank you and best wishes

Synod 2020 in the Archdiocese of Liverpool

It is a long established practice in the Church to use the term ‘Synod’ for decisive meetings at significant times where members of the Church come together to review one or more issues and make decisions.

Over fifty years after the Second Vatican Council and in view both of the multiple challenges facing us as well as the opportunities that contemporary cultural changes afford us, we are at a significant moment in the history of our Archdiocese.

There is clear duty on us to discern carefully together what the Spirit is saying to the Church in the Archdiocese of Liverpool and agree on common goals and actions for the coming years.

Malcolm McMahon OP, Archbishop of Liverpool

 

 

This is the website where more information can be found about the Synod:

 

www.synod2020.co.uk

 

 

 

 

 

16th February = 15th March

The fourth Synod 2020 theme,

Building Community, Nurturing Belonging, 

 

 Synod members will be working locally to create opportunities for parishioners to engage with the theme and to reflect on how it can challenge and inspire us.

 

We can then generate proposals to help us to become the Church that God is calling us to be.

 

On a personal basis, we all know someone who no longer comes to Mass. Each person has their own reasons for absence and our Parish Council would welcome ideas on how we can bring them back to become churchgoers once again.

 

A postbox for any suggestions will be placed in the porch and if we can succeed in this initiative then we will be able to fully embrace the Synod 2020 theme of evangelisation in our parish community

 

 

19 January 2020 - 16 February 2020 

 

How we pray together

 

In this Synod Theme we reflect on how we are sent out into the world to proclaim the Good News to the whole of creation.

 

In becoming the Church that God is calling us to be:

 

  • How do we more effectively evangelise and lead people to a deeper relationship with Jesus?
  • How do we show the compassionate love of Jesus in our work for justice, peace and integrity , in our acts of charity and our works of mercy?
  • How can the parish rise to the challenge of sharing the mission of Jesus?
  • How can we equip people to be the presence of Jesus at work , at home, in the street?

 

 

=================================================

The Season of Creation is our special time for the Creator and each other.

From September 1 to October 4, Christians around the world celebrate the Season of Creation. Some of us pray, some of us do hands-on projects, some of us advocate.

We all protect creation. It’s powerfully good work that’s urgently needed.

The momentum continues long after the season ends through ongoing prayer, changes in lifestyle, and advocacy.

During the Season of Creation, we live out our faith to care for creation. 

Season of Care of Creation

Pope Francis has designated a Season of Care of Creation from now until 4 October. We will celebrate Masses this weekend for this purpose.

Over the next few months a series of action is planned. This week’s suggestions include try to recycle more; switch to a green energy supplier; have a meat-free Monday; use Ecosia as a search engine – as good as Google and 80 per cent of its profit is used to plant trees.

 

BONFIRE NIGHT 

If you are coming to the bonfire night, in the church grounds, please consider bringing your own "keep it cup" or any cup rather than using disposable cups.

Five new altar servers were welcomed

at 10am Mass on Sunday 28th July 2019

Our Synod Questions

Sunday the 3rd of February 

The four Synod Questions that will inform and inspire our project of listening over the coming months have been published today, Friday 1 February 2019. They are:

  1. Where in your everyday life do you experience love, truth, goodness, hope, and joy?
  2. When you reflect on your life now, and as you look to the future, what causes you concern or worry?
  3. What is the purpose of the Catholic Church in the world today?
  4. Having reflected on these things, what are the topics you would like to see on the agenda of Synod 2020?

These questions begin from the truth that God speaks to us in our everyday lives and, as we reflect on our lives, we encounter Christ (c.f. Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium 8). We are then invited to think about what the Catholic Church is for. This will allow the Spirit of God to open our hearts so that, finally, we can reflect on the questions, issues, and topics that our Synod should make recommendations on.

We are all invited to reflect deeply and respond to these four Synod Questions. Listening will be done through our online survey, focus groups facilitated by Fr Peter McGrail at Liverpool Hope University, and by Synod Members in our local communities. It is through this great project of listening that we will begin to discern the Church God is calling us to be.

 

 

 

REFRESHMENTS AFTER OUR 10am SUNDAY MASS EACH WEEK

 

 SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO CORONAVIRUS ( COVID-19) PANDEMIC

 

Please do join us for: 

‘TEA & TOAST in the Millennium Room’ (Winter Months),

and our ‘TEA & CAKES on the Lawn’ (Summer Months) 

 

The Tea & Toast team work hard throughout the winter months

raising funds for our Lourdes Youth, who travel to Lourdes with

our Archdiocesan Pilgrimage in July each year, to work helping

those pilgrims, who require assistance.

 

Our Tea & Cakes team work hard throughout the summer months

raising funds for St. Peter’s Charity Fund.  This fund supports

numerous charities both at home and abroad.  As you can imagine,

the parish receives many requests for help from many sources, but we cannot say ’YES’ to them all and we already have 2nd Collections

for many of those charities, who merit one.

Our Charity Fund enables us to send some support to those charities we feel we should help, without asking our parishioners to donate yet again.

We regularly publish through our bulletin the amounts raised by both teams and any donations that are made on your behalf.  THANK YOU

 

For more information or to offer help in any way,

please join us after Mass or contact
