Work at Our Lady's Church:

Because of the work the Front Door of the church cannot be used as a Fire Exit. Please use the Door to the right into the Parish Centre, and the Car Park Door. This coming week, 17th to 21st September with more work needed than was first thought, we will have to place a scaffolding tower inside, at the back of Church for safety reasons. This does mean that we will not be able to use the Church during the inside of that week. There will however be a Mass in Our Lady's Parish Centre at 12.noon on Tuesday, 18th September, just before the Luncheon Club.

Next Weekend, 22nd/23rd September at Our Lady & St Bernard's:

Next weekend at Our Lady & St Bernard's we welcome Father Terry Casey C.S.Sp. from the Spiritan Community in Chester, who will cover Masses whilst Father Niall is away.

Fairtrade Stall:

The stall will be open this weekend 15th & 16th September at St. Saviour's, and at St. Bernard's on 23rd September. Change of dates due to the McMillan Cake Sale at St Saviour's.

You will be pleased to hear that Our Lady's is now a Fair Trade Parish.    

APF (Red) Mission Boxes:

Recently at St Saviour & St Mary's the 'Mission Today' quarterly was handed out in both Churches, and is being distributed to Box Holders at Our Lady & St Bernard's.

St Saviour & St Mary's Our Mission Together (OMT) Project- Parish Minibus:

As you know our parish project for OMT is to purchase a minibus for use across the parish. We have identified a suitable 17 seater lightweight Peugeot Minibus. This vehicle is fitted with the appropriate ramps to facilitate wheelchair & disabled access. A new vehicle will cost in the region of £30,000 with additional costs for insurance. We have now applied to the diocese for access to our raised funds in order to purchase this or a similar vehicle. It is our hope that the vehicle will be available and on the road before Christmas. We will keep you informed as this project is progressed.
