Scam emails about Ukraine

We have been alerted to an email entitled ‘FINANCIAL REQUEST FOR THE EMERGENCY MASS STIPENDS FOR PRIEST FOR THE EXARCHATE OF DONETSK UKRAINE’ being sent to people in our archdiocese. We have checked this with Bishop Gregory in Ukraine and he confirmed that this correspondence is a scam email so please do not respond to the email or send any funds.


Please do be vigilant if you receive any emails on this subject matter.


If you would like to make any donations to Ukraine, please do so via our #Liverpool4Ukraine appeal as this is a safe and secure way to get your funds directly to the people of Ukraine.

The Archdiocese Lourdes 100 trip will be celebrated with a concert as detailed in the FB message alongside. Event details are included in the picture however if you are interested then please purchase your ticket and let us know. Hopefully if there is sufficient interest, we will be able to arrange transport to and from the event itself.


Keep an eye out for the details of ticket availability. We will let people know when tickets are available. We will also put a list in the porch for those who have tickets so we can try and organise transport if there are sufficient folk going.

Warm and Cozy Update 8th November 2022


Thank you to everyone who has supported the warm and cosy hubs and well done to all parishes who have set up their own initiatives- they have been a huge success across the archdiocese.


They are a great opportunity for local people to keep warm and create new friendships in a safe environment. 


Above is a snapshot of the first warm and cosy gathering at St Mary's parish centre in Billinge last week.


Parishes can also upload their details to this national website to raise further awareness of their hub: Register your Space — Warm Spaces


A generic volunteer role description will be circulated, together with associated risk assessments, to assist parishes who are setting up warm spaces. The role description will be assessed by Safeguarding colleagues to confirm that DBS will not be required for this activity.

Warm and Cozy Centres


At the beginning of October, the trustees approved for our parish centres across the archdiocese to be used as warm and cosy centres during the winter months.


The centres will welcome people with free tea and coffee, and use of TV and WiFi in a safe and friendly space.


Opening days will vary between parishes and a full list is available from the archdiocese website. However, the centres available in the Warrington and Widnes deanery are shown in the graphic alongside. Please be advise that times may change to reflect local timetables and issues.


The idea has already received press attention and was featured on the BBC website this weekend: 

Suzanne Garswood, manager of St Jude’s, Wigan spoke to the Wigan Post about warm and cosy, you can watch the video here.
