Anita and Natasha thought that during Advent they could do an Advent calendar of prayer intentions. They are posting the intentions on their facebook page Natasha Anita RYM - they are always happy to welcome new friends.

Below are the prayer intentions to date

19th December

Today's Advent prayer intention is for those who have not experienced God's love. So often, we pray for the poor (and rightly so!) but often it is those who are comfortable, who are missing something so vital in their lives. We pray for those in our society who are not materially needy, but who are searching for something with more meaning in their lives

18th December

Today's prayer intention is for our Redemptorist parishes throughout the world!

Names to use for Jesus in prayer

How does an Advent Calendar work


Kingsway house building on Hatton garden, Liverpool is open for the homeless nights until's warm and dry and they do hot food. They will  take homeless people with dogs - many shelters do not. If you see anyone on the streets let them know this facility exits.

At all Masses across the archdiocese of Liverpool a Pastoral Letter from Archbishop Malcolm was read. If you would like to study the letter in more detail, it is available on the Archdiocesan website click here

If you have misplaced the Advent prayer cards which have been produced in preparation for Adoremus 2018, you can download a copy of the prayer on the Archdiocesan website - just click here

Fr Tony Rice C.SS.R on Advent

Fr Tony Rice C.Ss.R, a Redemptorist from the Dublin Province speaks about the first week of Advent


The Metropolitan Cathedral's Annual appeal for toiletries, nightwear, toys for children, chocolates and other new items for the Women’s Refuge has started once again. Please consider popping a little bit extra in for these families who have been through a tough time and who have fled from their homes with nothing. It is hard to imagine isn’t it?  Thankyou


Fr Brendan O'Rourke C.Ss.R reflects

on the gifts we can all give and receive which cost nothing, yet could change a life
