Our Lady & St Bernard's News

last updated : 23/6/17


Prayer before the Blessed Sacrament at Our Lady’s:

Just a reminder that there is an opportunity on Friday’s at Our Lady’s between 11.00am and 11.45am before the 12.noon Mass (except when there is a Funeral that day) to have a time of Prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. The Intentions of all who have placed requests on the ‘Prayer Board’ are remembered at this time.

Car Park Barrier at Our Lady’s:

Regular Visitors will notice the new Car Park Barrier at Our Lady’s. This should not be used for a good while yet. It will eventually be used during the working week, Monday to Friday approximately 8.00am to 5.00pm, and not at weekends. During the week it will be opened about 40 minutes before Services and will open automatically as people leave. At other times people will need a pass card to get into the Car Park. Parishioners who use the Car Park in the week will be able to obtain one of these cards, as will those who use it with our permission, and give us a regular offering for this. It will take a while to get this organised and we will make sure information is well circulated beforehand. So don’t worry! No one will be locked in and no one will have to pay to park when they come to Church!

School Mass:

Holy Mass will take place at 9.15am on Tuesday in St Mary of the Angels School and 9.30am on FRIDAY of this week at St Saviour’s Primary School. All are welcome to attend.

St Saviour & St Mary’s & Our Lady & St Bernard Food Bank/Hampers:

Together with our SVP we are continuing with our Parish Food Bank and due to a recent high demand we are now running a bit low on supplies. If you are able to contribute any non-perishable food or household materials please leave them in the porch area of our Churches. This Ministry continues to support those in our community who are in need.

‘Our Mission Together’ (OMT) at St Saviour’s & St Mary’s:

At Masses during recent weekends the Mission Census, forming the basis for our Mission Appeal, was conducted. If you have not filled in a form and wish to do so they are available at the rear of church. Please fill in a form and hand it in to Fr Louis or Deacon Tony. ‘The Renewal of our Mission’ OMT will seek to develop pastoral and financial resources for key areas in Shrewsbury Diocese. Therefore, over the next few months myself (Fr Louis) and Deacon Tony and other parishioners from our Parish will be sharing with you the objectives of this fundraising campaign, and how it will benefit our Parish as well as our Diocese.

Thank you to all who came along and supported the discussions concerning the way forward for Our Lady & St Bernard’s Parish in the wider call to become a Missionary Parish for Ellesmere Port & Hooton. We have some plans that we will talk about and initiate in the autumn. The next Parish Meeting will be on Wednesday, 13th September, 7.00pm in Our Lady’s Parish Centre. We will remind folk about this closer the time.

New Altar Servers’ Record at Our Lady & St Bernard’s:

He is looking for anyone who has ever served at Our Lady & St Bernard’s Churches to come and enter their name in this Book. So far several people have put in their names, including a gentleman who served Mass from 1943! Do see Chris if you would like to add your name to this Parish Record.
