NUGENT MILLION PENNIES APPEAL
Nugent are asking individuals, schools and businesses to try and collect as many pennies as they can from Tuesday, 1 September - Tuesday, 1 December 2020. If they can collect one million pennies, this will raise £10,000 which will support their work across our communities from those living in poverty through their food markets in Kirkdale and Woodvale, to those providing education for those who need extra support in their learning.
If you would like to get involved and request one of their collection

IMPORTANT TIMETABLE ADJUSTMENTS
Please do take note that we are making a real effort to provide our children with an opportunity to make their First Holy Communion. In the past week at St Mary’s Oliver and Jacob received for the first time at the weekday Masses.
However, most of the children from St Mary’s are now scheduled for the coming five Sundays. The numbers will be considerable on August 30th and September 6th and 13th, so please take note and plan accordingly.
At Bishop Eton we have set aside an 11.00am Mass each day during the coming week.
Therefore, may I ask that we reserve these Masses for the children and their immediate families?
The timetable of Masses across the Pastoral Area is widely advertised and the Masses at St Mary’s will go ahead as usual: 7.00pm on Tuesday and 12 noon on Thursday.
I thank you in anticipation of your co-operation.
SUMMARY TIMETABLE FOR THE COMING WEEK
Monday to Friday: 11.00am reserved for First Holy Communion
Sundays: 9.30am and 6.00pm
Thursday: 12 noon
Sundays: 11.00am (including a few First Communions)

Care for our Common Home – Laudato Si
Pope Francis invites us to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Laudato Si' from May 24, 2020 to May 24, 2021 - a whole year! There are many ways you can participate including: from home on your own, with your family, or virtually with your group, parish or community. Join us!
This year, we as people of faith can elevate creation care and learn, act, and pray. Climate change is an existential threat to God’s creation and the world has never been so ready for all communities to step up and take climate action.
We’re also in a moment of crisis in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. As new economies and new ways of caring for the most vulnerable arise, we have a critical opportunity to come together to ensure the new way of life is better than what came before. Laudato Si’ teaches us how to create a more just and sustainable world together.
We would like to offer you the opportunity to read this document as a Book Group, to allow us to come together to discuss and plan for how we can best use the ideas gathered here in our own Community.

When lockdown started, we looked at our list of contacts and each member of the SVP took responsibility to ring the same group of contacts each week. This means that all our contacts have somebody to talk to, fetch any shopping, run any errands and be available at anytime on the end of a phone. Members have been delighted at being able to offer this and we have all benefited from the calls. I know I speak for us all when I say it is a privilege to be able to do this.
We deliver shopping for those who have been unable to get out, take home baked cakes to our Carmelite friends at Maryton Grange each week on behalf of one of our ladies and shared many a laugh over the phone during what has been a difficult time for so many.
A big thank you to Woolton Round Table who kindly donated Asda vouchers that we were able to distribute to those who we knew would be grateful for them.
The lockdown has taught us many things. When we face challenging times, by working together as a team, we can still do great things and support each other. If anybody knows anybody who needs some support, please do not hesitate to contact the parish office so that we can get in touch. New members are always welcome and if anybody is interested in volunteering, again, please contact the parish office. Thank you to those who support us by giving up their time and generously donate to the SVP. We are extremely grateful
