Again, sorry for the delay in getting this Group back on the rails. A meeting is now planned for this coming Tuesday, 21st May 2019, 7.00pm in St Mary’s, Stanley Hall. We will be contacting those who attended before with an agenda, and suggested plans for a way forward. This will hopefully enable us to set up an ‘Ellesmere Port & Hooton Pastoral Forum’ that will work with the ‘Chester Pastoral Forum’ that is also in the process of being set up.

CAFOD ‘Our Common Home’:

Before Easter we had presentations based on Pope Francis’ Encyclical ‘Laudato Si’ with the Bishops’ of England and Wales’ video, the film ‘After the Flood’ and a Film about the Refugees Plight in the Mediterranean. We will now be following this up with CAFOD’s Programme ‘Our Common Home’ starting with a Mass Celebrating Creation on Friday, June 21st, 7.00pm at Our Lady’s, followed by refreshments and a gathering in the Parish Centre. More to follow.

MISSIO Summer Mass:

S.V.P. Theatre Night- Gladstone Theatre Port Sunlight,Wednesday 12th June 2019:

This year’s presentation is "Outside Edge". Tickets cost £8.00 and are available from SVP members, doors open at 7.00pm. This has been a good night out for some years, and hopefully this year will be too. The money raised is in Aid of the SVP holiday home.

Lourdes Pilgrimage July 2019:

LPA Scotland Trip: May 2020:

We depart on Monday 18th May 2020 and will stay four nights in the four star Peebles Hydro Hotel on a dinner, bed & breakfast basis. Costs will be £350.00 per person in a shared room or £450.00 per person in a single room.

St Saviour & St Mary’s Garden Party:

On Thursday 13th June at 6pm we will be holding a garden party at St Saviour’s to thank all those engaged in the numerous ministries and work across the whole parish (both of our churches) for their help and support. We hope that those who help in any ministry (Building & Grounds Work, Welcomers, Cleaners, Flower Arrangers, Eucharistic Ministers, Readers, SVP, Lourdes, Children’s Liturgy, Tea & Coffee Makers, Youth, Sewing & Luncheon Club supporters, etc.) will be able to attend. All parishioners are welcome to help us all express our appreciation for those who provide care and support. If you wish to come along please collect a free ticket from either church porch by Friday 7th June, this is give us an idea of the number we will be catering for, thank you.
