Parish updates

Wednesday is the Feast of the Archangels

This coming week sees the feast of the Archangels. May they protect the Church in these difficult times.

Masses as usual this week. Please note that our REFRESHMENTS after each of the Sunday Masses have now resumed. After consulting with parishioners and those who provide the refreshments, we decided that it was time. Considering theatres are open and back to full capacity, just like football games, with no obligatory masks or social distancing, the church is by comparison, a more more managed environment and so probably safer than a trip to the supermarket. We await a full return of all our people to Sunday Mass.

Stations of the Cross Appeal - update

 
The Stations of the Cross for 

St Peter's School 

have arrived - in two very large and heavy boxes!

They are a good size (20") in height to be able to make an impact, 

so we are very pleased.


The new term began yesterday 

welcoming the boys back both new and old!

Here, playing pétanque in the old orchard, 

which is where we hope to set the Stations up.

There was another donation yesterday as well 

- given anonymously - thank you.

That has taken us to 57% of the cost of £2,500, 

which is greatly appreciated.

The fund is still open 

and you can help us make this place of prayer by giving 

HERE!

Thank you for any gift, large or small.

Sunday Masses

 

This week, on Friday, sees the feast day of local man, 

St Ambrose Barlow.

For those who live locally, you will be aware of the road resurfacing this week along the whole of Stanifield Lane that has led to some disruption. I've checked with the workmen and, although the work is not quite complete, the road is fully accessible this Sunday. See you at Mass!

Stations of the Cross Appeal. 50% there!


Go past the hollyhocks... turn left... turn right... and there begin the Stations of the Cross!

Well, not yet. But that is where St Peter's International School in France is hoping to be able to set up a Way of the Cross. 

The great news is that our giving campaign has just reached the half way mark. So we have raised £1,250. If you would like to be part of this project to install these beautiful Della Robbia style stations, each 20" high, please click on the link below.

Thanks to our wonderful donors - the small and the large amounts all add up!

Stations of the Cross Appeal - Update


We've now received 40% of the total amount, which is really great in just in few days.

We hope to install them throughout the old orchard at St Peter's International College, pictured here with an air balloon going over last week. It is just beyond Sacré Coeur House, pictured below.

 

Many thanks to the donors.

Twenty First Sunday at St Catherine's parish

 
This week sees the celebration of two feasts with local connections not far from our little parish.

Monday is the Feast of St John Wall of Preston, sent to his death on the charges that he had said Mass, heard confessions, and received converts into the Church.

Thursday is the Feast of Blessed Dominic Barberi, "Apostle of the English" buried at the former Passionist church of Sutton Monastery in St Helen's.
