THE NOVENA FOR OUR LADY OF PERPETUAL SUCCOUR. Next Sunday Fr Charles Corrigan and the students will speak at all the Masses both here and at St Mary's  about their plans for the nine days, which begin on Tuesday 19 June. I hope that there will be a wonderful response this year. It can link into our prayerful preparations for the Eucharistic Congress and the Synod which will follow in 2020.

THE EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS: For anyone interested, it will be possible from tomorrow (11 June) to book directly to be a delegate at the Eucharistic Congress. Please go to the website:

Please note there is a dedicated page on the Archdiocesan website - which has lots of useful information and links.

If you would like to read Fr Tim's talk on the Eucharist and St Alphonsus that he gave at the Carmelite convent click here.

COMINGS AND GOINGS: I am happy to report that Fr Tony Hunt returned to the monastery during the week, but the sepsis has certainly drained him of energy. Fr John Milcz now has an excellent care package in place, which means that both of them have regular visits each day to help them cope. Fr Barrie O’Toole remains in good spirits. Fr Andrew plans to visit him this coming week and will be away from Tuesday to Thursday.

THE SCHOOLS: Before the summer holidays, I hope to work with both Much Woolton and Bishop Eton in preparing some Eucharist Devotions for children, so that we will be primed and ready for the Eucharistic Congress when they return in September.

Vacancy in the Archdiocese 





Saturday 23rd June - it's the Northern Catholic Conference at Hope University.

We're getting involved with a session for the teenagers, and it's always a great weekend for Catholics of all ages to explore aspects of their faith, so why not think about popping in? 

Sunday 24th June - Mass, Sunday lunch and football.

Meet at Bishop Eton for 11:30 Mass, then we will go to the Halfway House afterwards for food and watch the England v Panama game at 13:00. Please note that as Mass will finish just 30 minutes before kick off, there's a chance we may not get a seat and will have to resort to a plan B and go elsewhere or abandon our lunch plans. But it's Mass that's the important part, right?
