Justice & Peace Group meeting:

Please note (Summer venue) – we will now meet again at St Mary’s (Stanley Hall) on Thursday 19th July from 6pm until 7.30pm. This group is open to all of our children of primary school age, year 3 and over!

St Saviour & St Mary’s SVP Appeal: 

As we all know, it is a sad reflection of our times that so many families are dependent on Foodbanks. Our own SVP are called on more and more to help, and as a parish we do a fantastic job both with the food you donate and the money you give each month. However, at the moment, need is greater than supply, and we need further donations to top up our stocks. Please make sure any food donated is non-perishable and in date. Donations can be left in the porch at St Saviour’s or St Mary’s. Thank you for your continued support for this ministry.

SVP Groceries, Our Lady & St Bernard’s:

The SVP have run out of groceries. Thanks to parishioners and Our Lady's Primary School's generosity at Christmas, we were able to supply needy families with grocery's, but the demand is constantly increasing; so if parishioners would be so kind to come to our assistance, the families concerned will be forever grateful. There are boxes at the back of Our Lady’s & St Bernard’s Churches for any who could help. Thank you.

Luncheon Clubs:

In Our Lady’s Parish Centre this coming Tuesday, 10th July at 12.30pm, and this coming Friday, 13th July at 12.30pm
St Saviour & St Mary of the Angels’ Parish Luncheon Club Will meet again at St Saviour’s on Thursday 19th July from 12 until 2pm. All are welcome for some conversation, company and refreshments.

Parish Garden at St Saviour’s:

Please note that this beautiful ‘Garden Shrine’ is open for the use of parishioners. As the better weather is now with us the garden gate will be opened before and after our weekend Masses so please feel free to spend time in the garden. Our sincere thanks is extended to the parishioners who have helped to build and maintain this Garden Shrine.

Tea & Coffee at St Saviour’s & St Mary of the Angels:

Many thanks to all who regularly prepare and serve refreshments after our weekend Masses. Not only is this a very important part of our parish & family life but also the donations offered help to finance many areas of ministry. Recently funds have paid for the refreshments provided for our First Communion Children, the purchase of a new lawn-mower and ongoing support for our Lourdes Youth Ministry Team. Thanks to all who stay for a ‘Cuppa’ and for your kind donations. If you don’t normally stay behind, please consider popping in and spending some social time with your parish family

Our Lady & St Bernard Parish Formation as part of our ‘One Parish’:

Connected with the item above, we have mentioned before, several people, for understandable reasons, are stepping aside from roles which they have held for a long time. These do leave gaps, and we will be approaching some parishioners to ask if they are able to help, and spare some time. A lot of work has fallen to a small group in the past, and if more people take part, we are able then to share in this mission. As we have said in regard to our ‘One Parish’ – ‘it’s about all of us’, and we need each other. Please do consider if there is any way you might be able to help, and if you have any questions, thoughts, suggestions, please see Father Niall.

Spiritan Appeal, Our Lady & St Bernard Parish:

Each year our Diocese allocates the Annual Mission Appeal to a particular Order or Congregation. This year the appeal is being carried out by ‘The Spiritans’, formerly known as the ‘Holy Ghost Fathers’. The main house for the Spiritans in the UK is now in Hoole Road in Chester, and the Spiritans do a huge amount in helping and supporting us in this Deanery, so it has been a special privilege for us to support their Mission appeal this year. A little while back they came to give the appeal in St Saviour & St Mary of the Angels’ Parish, and this weekend 7th/8th of July we welcome Father James Mchamungu C.S.Sp. to Our Lady & St Bernard’s Parish, and he will cover the Masses this weekend, and there will be a Retiring Collection after Masses for the Spiritan Appeal.  Father James has been to our Parish before and we look forward to welcoming him.
