ALL VOLUNTEERS PLEASE NOTE-very important: Kevin Harvey (the Archdiocese H&S Representative) has flagged up an issue that has arisen in some Parishes. If you do any regular jobs at the church OTHER than at Mass times (eg cleaning, counting money, reception duty etc) and you DRIVE to church, please inform your motor insurers that you do voluntary work at church. There should be no increase in your premium. There have been instances of Parishioners who have had traffic accidents coming out of church and their insurers have not settled the claim due to being unaware of the drivers’ voluntary duties.

Christmas Day: There will be a meal hosted on Christmas Day this year in St Mary's Hall from 1-4pm. It is a collaborative community event hosted by RYMSt Mary's & Bishop Eton's SVP, St Peter's Woolton, St James' Woolton & Woolton Community Life and will be sponsored by Tesco in  Woolton.

A meal is being provided free for anyone who will be on their own Christmas Day irrespective of religion or income. It is not a charitable event, simply a way of offering fellowship & community on such an important day of the year.

Perfumed Rosary Beads

St John Vianney’s Parish Sister, Sister Mary, who is now housebound, makes ‘real’ Rosary beads from real rose petals thus producing perfumed beads. She buys the accessories from overseas and then takes a couple of months preparing the crushed rose petals, until ready for beading. Sister then hand assembles the beads, the chains and crucifix complete with their presentation box, they are so blessed! Sister produces these to help raise much needed funds for those in Bangladesh who have had their villages and churches destroyed by floods. A set costs £10 and are available by ringing the Parish Office of St John Vianney, Halewood.

Animate is the Youth Service of the Archdiocese of Liverpool and was set up as a response to people in the Diocese naming Youth Ministry as one of their top 3 priorities to be addressed.

Each month they run a ‘Life and Soul’ service.  It consists of a period of Adoration accompanied by modern and traditional hymns.

The next sessions will be held on
