Clergy Education & Training Fund Special Collection:

Thank you all for your support of this Collection last weekend. We will let you know soon how much was raised. There are still envelopes and information leaflets for anyone who might still wish to donate to this appeal.

Deanery Holy Hour for Mission & Renewal:

It is a while since our last Chester & Ellesmere Port Deanery ‘Holy Hour for Mission & Renewal’. As we in Ellesmere Port and our fellow Parishes in Chester enter into a new time of discernment and discussion for the future, it is important to root this procedure in prayer. Our next Holy Hour will take place 7.00pm to 8.00pm at St Columba’s, Plas Newton Lane, Chester CH2 1SA this coming Wednesday, 28th November.

Day of Eucharistic Adoration, Our Lady’s Church, on Friday 7th December:

A Day of Eucharistic Adoration for Advent has been arranged at Our Lady’s Church from 10.00am to 4.30pm, concluding with Evening Prayer. There will be a Mass at 8.30am that morning, but not at 12.noon as Father Niall has to be away at a meeting. There are lists for people to cover ‘slots’ that day in our Churches; do please sign to cover a slot if you feel you can.

Ellesmere Port & Hooton Joint Pastoral Consultation Group:

This weekend we have available the minutes of the meeting in October. As we have said previously, during these next few weeks we are getting in touch with people to act as ‘contacts’ for our various groups and bodies to act as links. When we have had brief meetings with these people we will get the larger group together again to keep things moving forward. We’ll keep you posted.

Options for Morning Prayer & Eucharistic Adoration in our Churches on some mornings in Advent:

The idea has been put forward at our LPA Clergy Gathering of the opportunity being made in St Marys & Our Lady’s Churches during Advent on Monday & Friday Mornings, for Morning Prayer from the Divine Office and a time of Eucharistic Adoration, at about either 7.30am/8.00am for about half an hour? Could folk let the Clergy know if they are interested to see if this idea is viable?       

LPA, SVP Youth/ Altar Servers Conference:

The Youth Conference will meet this coming Monday 26th November at 4.15pm to 5.00pm, in Our Lady’s Parish Centre. New members are always welcome from 10 years of age plus. For further information contact Chris Duke 355 6954.

Family Masses:

‘Family Masses’ are Sunday Masses where our children and young people take an additional part in the Liturgy, for example with prayers, reflections, presentations and music. Our Schools help us with these celebrations as ways to encourage greater involvement in our wider faith families.

The next Family Mass at Our Lady’s will be on:
Sunday, 9th December at 11.00am with EPCHS.
