FROM FR TIM
NOVENA IN HONOUR OF OUR LADY OF PERPETUAL SUCCOUR: MONDAY 19 JUNE TO TUESDAY 27 JUNE. We will pray the Novena Prayers at all the Masses in Bishop Eton and St Mary’s from this Monday until Tuesday Week. In view of the tragic events in our country in recent weeks, culminating in the horrific fire in West London in the early hours of last Wednesday, I suggest that a central intention should include all those who have lost their lives and those who are suffering as a result of these tragedies.
CORPUS CHRISTI. Today we celebrate the Feast of the Eucharist: a very fitting day for our First Communicants to celebrate with the parish at the 10.00am Mass. May they and their families become more and more part of the life of the parish in the months and years ahead.
Father’s Day. We wish all our fathers every blessing on this day and thank them for all they do for their families and for the family of the Church.
Please remember that priests are our spiritual Fathers. Our Pastoral Area Patron said a daily prayer for priests we could all consider doing the same.
Redemptorist Youth Officer. We are looking for someone to continue the good work begun by Paul Murphy over the past few years. Anyone interested in this post, please collect a summary job description and an application form from the monastery. Closing date: 1 July.
The Lady Chapel. I am giving you prior notice that the Lady Chapel and the wall at the back of the aisle are badly in need of repair. We have managed to secure an insurance grant to replace the damaged plaster and work will commence on 31 July. Unfortunately, this will necessitate the chapel being out of use for several weeks. You will receive more information when the work is about to begin.
First Holy Communion—Sunday group photos: Can parents wishing to place an order please collect and return forms to reception at the Monastery please. Also this group’s DVD’s are available for collection.
Bereavement Support Group meeting will be on Tuesday 20 June from 2.00pm—4.00pm in the Hughes Room.
Parish Pastoral Group. The next core group meeting will take place on Wednesday 21 June 8.15pm. Any items for the agenda parishioners would like discussed should be emailed to the parish office by Tuesday 20 June.

St Julie’s Catholic High Schoolwould like to invite girls currently in Year 4 and Year 5 and parents to the school’s Open Evening on Thursday 29 June from 3.30pm to 6.00pm.

‘Celebrate the Child’ Mass this year will be held on Sunday 2 July at St Anne’s Church, Prescot Road, Ormskirk, L39 4TG. The day will begin at 1.00pm when children will be able to join in activities to prepare for Mass, which will begin at 3.00pm. Poster in the porch.

A Special concert: Come and Join Us:
As part of the events marking the 50th Anniversary of the opening of the Metropolitan Cathedral, a special concert is being given in the Cathedral on Saturday 7 October 2017 at 7:30pm.
The participants are the Cantata Choir, directed by James Luxton and the Cathedral Orchestra, conducted by Stephen Pratt.
The programme of all British music has been devised to allow singers of different standards to participate.

For those who would like to come along to enjoy joining in some rousing hymns, only the dress rehearsal on the day of the concert will be necessary.

NUGENT HTC SUMMER FAIR
Please can everyone using the car park take extra care and adhere to the NO PARKING signs. Cars are regularly blocking access routes and parking on double yellow lines obstructing the free flow of traffic and pedestrians.
- recently the concrete bollard which had only just been replaced was bumped into;
- the wooden flower beds outside the Monastery was severely damaged, after so much hard work had gone into replanting them,
- cars are constantly being scraped.
In most of these cases NO-ONE has informed the monastery that they have caused any damage. Please park responsiblyand manoeuvre carefully to avoid damaging any property.
We are finding it difficult to keep the list up to date because everyone for whom we are asked to pray is not necessarily a parishioner. It will be helpful if people recover or sadly die that you let the parish office know. We plan to tidy up the list in the coming weeks. Obviously we will keep praying for all those whom we know remain unwell, but if there is someone on the list whom you particularly wish to keep on the list and whom we may not know, please inform the parish office.
St Mary's First Holy Communions
Over sixty children will be making their First Holy Communion at St. Mary's in the coming weeks (at the 11am Masses on the 11th, 18th and 25th of this month). Please keep them and their families in your prayers.
Annual Altar Servers Mass
will take place at the Cathedral on Saturday 1 July at 11.00am. All altar Servers are welcome to attend but should let the parish office know to book you in.
