Who are the Redemptorists?

Founded in 1732 by St. Alphonsus Liguori to be a congregation of Priests and Brothers who work tirelessly for the poor and most abandoned under the banner and motto:

With Him, there is plentiful redemption.

We live together in community, trying to live an apostolic life focussed around the Eucharist, the Divine Office and our Apostolic ministries.

Our Mother of Perpetual Succour…

The Redemptorists were given the icon by Pope Pius IX in 1866 more than 150 years ago, who told us:

“Make her known throughout the world.”

As part of that brief, once a year we especially gather together for nine days (culminating with the feast) to venerate this Icon of the Mother of God, to ask for her loving intercession and to express our gratitude for all the many graces she has won for us through her Son.

Unable to Travel ?

You can pray the Novena at home, uniting your prayers with ours. The Redemptorists have set up a website to enable people with no access to the Perpetual Novena or unable to get to a Perpetual Novena to set up Home Novena group.

Simply go to http://novena-at-home.redemptorists.co.uk/

FROM FR TIM:

GREETINGS FROM THE EMERALD ISLE: I am thoroughly enjoying the Novena at the Redemptoristine Convent in Dublin.

FROM FR TIM:

ADOREMUS: There is no doubt that all our delegates greatly appreciated the opportunity to be part of last weekend’s unique event and I look forward to working out with them how best they can share the experience with the rest of us. At the same time, the two events in Bishop Eton were well attended not only by our own parishioners, but also by some visitors from around the country. Again, the responses were very favourable, and I want to thank everyone who contributed to ensuring that everything went so well: the liturgies, the talks and the hospitality.

NOVENA IN IRELAND: By the time most of you read this I will be on my way to Ireland for the Novena in honour of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour in our Redemptoristine convent chapel in Dublin.

(The Novena will be streamed via the Redemptoristine webcam visit www.rednuns.com )

I will look after the two sessions each day for the next nine days and return to Liverpool on Wednesday, 26 September.

Please pray for the Lord’s blessing on this venture and in turn we will keep the two parishes in our petitions.

And this just leads me to encourage everyone to think about supporting our Perpetual Novena each Wednesday evening in Bishop Eton at 7.30pm. Numbers have diminished in recent months in spite of the special Nine Days in the summer. These devotions have provided comfort and support for countless individuals and families over the years and I hope will continue to do so into the future.

ROME/ASSISI PILGRIMAGE – 28 OCTOBER -2 NOVEMBER 2019: There are still a couple of places available for this wonderful parish pilgrimage next year. If you would like to join us, please contact Ann O’Neill at the parish office for a booking form.

Can we please restrict parking to the actual parking bays and not double park, hence blocking people in.

CATHOLIC NEWSPAPERS: The Universe and The Catholic Times are now £1.50 each.  Please put the paper money and Bible Alive money in the slot in the wall in the porch. Thank you!

RCIA:  Are you interested in becoming a Catholic or know someone who is?

You may be someone or know someone who has never belonged to any faith tradition or been baptised in another Christian faith. You may simply feel a sense of curiosity to find out more or you may have already decided to seek membership of the Catholic church. Whatever your starting point you are very welcome. Becoming and being a Christian is a journey of faith which takes place within our Pastoral Area community.

The course will start this Tuesday 18 September at 7:30pm with coffee from 7:00pm in the Hughes Room at Bishop Eton.
The first meeting will be an introduction to the course and one another.  You may bring a friend along to the first meeting for support if you wish.
If you would like to be part of this programme, please contact the parish office.

FROM FR TIM:

Adoremus

ADOREMUS WEEKEND: Our prayer is that the Eucharistic Congress in our city this weekend will fill the Church across the country with a new sense of purpose, hope and joy. I would like to thank all of you who celebrated the special events in Bishop Eton on Friday evening and Saturday lunchtime. I hope that one way or another everyone has felt part of the event and we look forward in due course to sharing the experience of our delegates who joined the thousands in the Echo Arena. Please remember that everyone is welcome to join the Blessed Sacrament Procession from the Cathedral at 1 pm this Sunday.  Please note the Pilgrimage Masses in the Cathedral at 9.30am and 11.30am are ticket only. or the 

FR BARRIE O’TOOLE: I was able to visit Fr Barrie in Ripon on Thursday. We had lunch together and an enjoyable chat. He is immensely grateful for all the messages of goodwill and promises of prayer. He sends you all his love and an assurance of his prayers in return. He is somewhat weaker, but remains cheerful and is being wonderfully looked after by his sister, Pat, and her family and the care package they now have in place.

NOVENA IN IRELAND: Early next Sunday I leave to preach a Novena in honour of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour at the Redemptoristine Convent chapel in Dublin. Please pray for the Lord’s blessing on the event. Apart from a couple of days when Fr Andrew has Redemptorist meetings in the south, most of the community should be in residence during that time.  ( You can follow the Novena Masses via the webcam on the Redemptoristine sisters' website www.rednuns.com)

LIVING WELL WITH DEMENTIA - DEMENTIA AWARENESS SESSION: We had a wonderful turnout last Monday evening for the presentation/talk by dementia specialist nurse Serena Jones. With more than eighty people in attendance and representation from all areas of our local community, the session proved very informative and enjoyable. The feedback has been extremely positive and we will continue in our efforts to become a ‘Dementia Friendly Parish.’ For those who could not attend, a copy of the PowerPoint presentation (converted to pdf as it is more accessible) can be found on our website click here. In the meantime, we would like to offer a huge thank you to Serena Jones for sharing her time and expertise with us and to Sheila Nimmo, who worked tirelessly in preparing information packs for people to take away and to ensure the evening, was a complete success.

CAR PARK: We are receiving an increasing number of complaints from parishioners about the way people are parking for weekend Masses. Can we please restrict parking to the actual parking bays and not double park, hence blocking people in.

LIVING WELL WITH DEMENTIA - DEMENTIA AWARENESS SESSION: On Monday 3 September 2018 7:00pm-8:30pm we will be hosting a dementia awareness session in the parish hall.

Our guest speaker will be Serena Jones who is a dementia specialist nurse. Serena will share her expertise with us and offer advice on how people can live well with dementia, together with advice and signposting tips for carers.
The evening promises to be a very interesting and highly informative event. Everyone is welcome to attend and particularly those people living with dementia and their carers. In brief, dementia is caused by diseases of the brain which can affect memory, everyday tasks, communication and perception. It is not a result of the normal ageing process.
There are over 800,000 people living with dementia in the UK and this figure is set to rise. Churches and faith-based organisations have an important role to play in ensuring people living with dementia can continue to live their lives and be an active part of their communities for as long as possible.
Many of our parishioners will develop dementia or be caring for someone who does. By being more dementia friendly, we can help and support them to continue practicing their faith. Please do come along on 3 September so that we can continue to raise our awareness and work together in becoming a Dementia Friendly Parish
We would also like to invite representation from our schools and neighbouring churches. Parish groups including
Eucharistic ministers who provide home visits, Bereavement groups, SVP, UCM and RYM are particularly encouraged to attend and of course,  all those people who signed up as Dementia Friends at the July 2017 session.

MISSION APPEAL:  There is an appeal this weekend for St Patrick’s Missionary Society (Kiltegan Fathers) 

AdoremusgoldonpurpleADOREMUSThe Eucharistic Congress is less than two weeks away and I want to suggest that we do everything we can to help make it a success.

Next Sunday (2 September) we will have short commissioning service of our delegates at the 11:00am Mass. If you have registered for the Congress personally, may I suggest that you come to this Mass and join the others in the commissioning ceremony? The more representatives we have the better.

The more representatives we have the better. For the rest, I remind you that Bishop Eton is hosting a couple of special fringe events.

Friday 7 September: Family Holy Hour at 6.00pm: It will be wonderful if we can have a tremendous turnout from both parishes. The format will be very simple and the children very much involved. Hopefully, if the weather permits, we will be able to include a Procession of the Blessed Sacrament around the grounds. 
Saturday 8 September: ‘The Eucharist and the Redemptorist Charism’ Noon: Bishop Ralph Heskett, C.Ss.R. will lead the concelebrated Mass in the church and this will be followed by some refreshments and a talk by Fr Andrew Burns, C.Ss.R. in the Fisher-More Hall.

Also as part of the Eucharistic Congress there will be a Carpet of Flowers in the central aisle of the Cathedral.  The Cathedral is looking for volunteers who would like to help with this.  No experience needed but there will be a lot of kneeling on the floor. If you can help on Thursday 6th September please email .  For full details click here

FOREIGN MISSION APPEAL: We welcome Fr John Garry from St Patrick’s Missionary Society, who will be making the annual mission appeal in both parishes this weekend.

COMINGS AND GOINGS: At present Fr Andrew is in Ireland for the great family event and the visit of Pope Francis. Both he and Fr Charles return this Sunday evening. I had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and have returned refreshed. 

A few of you may have noticed that I had a letter published in ‘The Tablet’ last weekend, and the previous week I also had a blog on ‘The Tablet’ website. I will make this available by including it in the September edition of ‘BE Alive’. These are difficult and painful times for the Church the Pope has reminded us of what St Paul says: “If one part of the body is hurting, the whole body is hurting.” We will need to think and pray about this in the days ahead. Providentially ‘Adoremus’ may be offering us a good opportunity to begin that process.

EVENTS SUPPORTING ADOREMUS: There is a parallel programme of events supporting Adoremus from 7-9 September in various locations around the city. See the poster in the porch or pick up a leaflet, or click here

We are currently in process of writing the report and looking at how we can discern our priorities for the next three years, these will be presented to the Parish in due course.  One thing that has been obvious throughout the process is the importance of conversations and opportunities to gather socially and to get to know fellow parishioners better, strengthening community.  

Please do take the opportunity to come to the Parish Hall for a cup of tea or coffee after the 10:00am Mass on Sunday (or 11:00 am from 2  September) to meet people and to continue to listen to each other.
