A message from Father Niall Mullaley regarding his sister, Christine Mullaley RIP:

As some of you will know my, sister Christine Mullaley was seriously ill over Christmas and New Year. Christine died on 5th February and we held her Funeral last Thursday, 14th February in Altrincham Crematorium. There will be a memorial Mass for her in the future, probably at Our Lady’s here, when burial of Ashes has been arranged. I did not say anything last weekend as things had happened very quickly, and my nephew and I had been back and forth trying to get things fixed, and I was in need of ‘emotional space’ so to speak! From those who have been aware, many thanks for your kind support, wishes and prayers. This Sunday, 17th of February, would have been Chris’ 77th Birthday, and I had put this Mass for her Birthday Intention down before she died. As the 17th February will also be the 23rd Anniversary of our brother Peter’s death, I have put them both together for this Mass. Do please keep Christine, her son, Kieran and his wife and family in your prayers.

Justice & Peace Meeting:

The next meeting of the J&P Group will be this Sunday 17th February at 6.30 pm in Our Lady's Parish Centre. In addition to hearing about current J&P issues we will be planning meetings and events in the months leading up to Easter. All are welcome to join us as we involve our group in the important area of Catholic Social Teaching.

Retired Priests’ Fund Collection:

Many thanks again for your support of the Retired Priests’ Fund Collection. There are still envelopes and leaflets available in our Churches, and we will keep this Collection open for this weekend for anyone to make late donation; after this weekend we will close this collection. We will let you know totals when we have received any late donations. Thank you all again.

World Day of Prayer, Friday, 1st March:

The Annual World Day of Prayer, organised by Women, will take place on Friday 1st March and there will be a Service at 10.30 am that day at Trinity Methodist Church, Whitby Road, and the Speaker will be the Reverend Jackie Bellfield.

Ellesmere Port & Hooton Joint Pastoral Consultation Group:

Once again, sorry for the delay in getting this group up and running again. We will hopefully have some information soon and will be thinking of starting up again in March.

Update on Sacraments Preparation for those in Non-Catholic Schools:

We are aware of several people who have asked about this, and others who have been asking. The first planning meeting for those in Year 3 or above who would like to make their First Holy Communions will now be on Friday, 1st March, 6.00pm in Our Lady’s Parish Centre, not Friday, 22nd February, due to this being in half term. Please note the change of date. We will hopefully be in touch with those we know about, but if anyone would like to find out more details please ring the LPA Office on: 0151 355 5877

LPA Office Update:

Due to some people being off sick and others having illness in the family, things have fallen behind in the LPA Office. If we had previously said we would do something for you, or contact you back, and this hasn’t happened, we would appreciate you getting in touch to remind us on:
T; 0151 355 5877
