Wed, 15th August is a HOLY DAY of OBLIGATION

The Feast of the Assumption


This feast is God putting the finishing touches of perfection to his work with humanity. He had kept Mary free from even Original Sin, fitting to the future Mother of his Son. Now he ensures her sinless person does not decay in the earth – a consequence of sin – but goes straight into the fullness of life in heaven. It is the promise of glory to come for all of us, even though for us it is via the grave. God will crown his creation with eternal glory.


There will be a Vigil Mass here on Tuesday at 7pm and on Wednesday there will be Mass at Our Lady & St. Edwards 9.15am and 7.30pm.

N.B as the schools are on holiday there will not be a Mass on Wednesday morning here.



The postponed cycle ride will now be held on Sunday Sept 16th.


CLEATOR PILGRIMAGE Sunday 2nd Sept. Our Lady of Lourdes shrine, West Cumbria. Bishop Paul will preside and preach. Mass begins 3pm. Long journey but beautiful.



GIVE YOUR SOUL A TREAT! Booklets of Eucharistic reflection are on sale, only 50p !


STANDING UP FOR LIFE: Withdrawing food and water to bring about the end of a life - that’s a wrong intention. We must bravely witness when the opportunity arises. We can support groups such as LIFE, SPUC, Good Counsel, etc.  We can keep on contacting MPs and other authorities (easy enough by email). And we maintain prayer: Please say the Rosary daily from 6th to 15th August, asking God through Our Lady that the sanctity of life be cherished. It’s a Chain of Prayer throughour the world.

1.The EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS,  LIVERPOOL, on 7th, 8th and 9th September. 

On Sunday 9th September, there will also be a great outdoor procession of the Bl1essed Sacrament.  It starts at 1.00pm, and closes with Benediction 2.45pm. Ends 3.00pm Why not go to Liverpool that day, to be part of this Catholic Faith-witness, honouring Our Lord? Maybe offer a lift to someone else?       


2.FILL THEIR SHOES ! Two people who were planning to represent us on Sat 8th Sept, the 2nd day of the Liverpool Eucharistic Congress, have had to stand down. It would be a pity to waste the opportunity, and the parish would benefit from more people havig the experience. It promises to be rewarding. Will YOU please go in their place? Please do come forward.


3.ALONGSIDE the Congress, there’s to be a National Justice & Peace event – see


4. And there is an Adoremus Youth Congress at the same time.  See Catholic papers.
