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.

THE SOLEMNITY OF THE MOST HOLY REDEEMER:

IMG 4569

Today, our titular Feast Day, we wish you all every blessing. As we explained previously, this weekend the priests of the pastoral area are swapping churches, to give witness to the fact we are trying to pool our resources and work more and more collaboratively. We welcome Fr Stephen Pritchard, the Dean, to St Mary’s and his note about the weekend is included in this bulletin. I am grateful to Fr Stephen and all the clergy in the pastoral area that they have agreed to celebrate the Feast of the Holy Redeemer, not only in the parishes under the care of the Redemptorists, but in all the parishes this weekend. However, the readings will be the usual Sunday readings and they are very appropriate for the occasion.

REDEMPTORIST STUDENT FUND: On this feast day we usually ask you to help contribute to the fund for the education of our students, but since the collection at the Novena was specially earmarked for that cause, we are not having another collection this year. Incidentally the final total from the Novena was £4,211. Once again,’ thank you’ and congratulations!

COMING AND GOINGS: Fr Kevin Callaghan is very grateful to all those who made his celebration last weekend such a happy occasion. Fr Andrew is now in Madrid and Fr Charles is away for a couple of days until Tuesday evening.

SYNOD 2020- ON THE ROAD TOGETHER: This weekend we welcome Fr Stephen Pritchard from Our Lady of the Assumption parish who will celebrate all our Sunday Masses. All the local priests will be in a different church in the Pastoral Area. This is the first of six occasions over the next two years when a different priest from the Pastoral Area will celebrate Mass here. The priest will help us to see that:

  • We are moving in a new direction by small but significant practical steps towards a Diocesan Synod in 2020.
  • You will see that the priests will be working more closely to serve Christ and His people in this area.
  • Father will mention that the first meeting of the Pastoral Area Synod has happened. Many of this group are delegates at the Eucharistic Congress in September.
  • The priests will speak of how they are endeavouring on a new path with us and ask us to pray, to share our expertise, energy and commitment to offer God all we have in order to best serve as missionary disciples.

THE EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS: For anyone interested, it is now possible to book directly to be a delegate at the Eucharistic Congress. Tickets are still available until the end of July to the Saturday Echo Arena event at £43.50.  Please go to the website:  http://www.jumpdp.com/adoremus2018/

Funeral Service this week: Robert Allen (RIP) on Wednesday 11 July at 1:00pm.

FROM FR TIM

PLEASE NOTE NEW E-MAIL ADDRESS ABOVE:  

FrMilcz2FR JAN MILCZ, CSsR died peacefully at Marie Curie at around 9:00 pm last Tuesday evening.

Fr Charles and Bro Michael Taylor were with him.

When I took him Holy Communion last Sunday morning, I sensed that this would probably be the last time that I would see him.

To say that John had an eventful life would be something of an understatement. Having been taken prisoner as a boy during the Second World War, he was later to serve both in the Polish and British Armies.

His deep faith led him to try his vocation for the priesthood and he joined the Redemptorists in 1958, was professed in 1959 and ordained in 1966. He was a good and holy man and we will miss him, but we are grateful that the final struggle is over.

We, the Redemptorists, are immensely grateful for the love, friendship and support you have given him over the years and especially for your prayers in these last months of his life. We are also very grateful to Philip Sergeant (who is now coordinating the nursing care of our sick confrères), the carers and nurses who came to the monastery and the staff of Marie Curie during these final weeks. May he rest in peace. 

His funeral will be this Wednesday (11 July) at Noon.                                            

COMINGS AND GOINGS:

I have finally returned to base. The days with the military chaplains proved another rewarding experience. I do admire their challenging vocation, witnessing to the faith often in less than ideal circumstances.
Fr Charles is taking part in a vocations’ meeting in Clapham this weekend.
Fr Andrew leaves us next Friday for a ten–day Marriage Encounter Meeting in Madrid. When he returns the schools will have broken up for the summer holidays, England will have won the World Cup and hopefully we can all relax for a few days!

Pastoral Area pulpit swap towards Synod 2020:

In the joint Epiphany letter to all Catholics in the Pastoral Area, it was highlighted that as part of the Synod 2020 process and to demonstrate a deepening of collaborative ministry the priests would celebrate Sunday Mass in each of the churches in Pastoral Area 3.
Next Sunday is the first of these occasions.
The priests of the PA have felt called to have an ever-expanding ecclesial heart rather than a parochial heart and this has meant that they have been looking at ways to grow together to best serve the Kingdom of God. By visiting each parish, the priests will better be able to get to know different communities and people will be able to connect with priests from different local parishes.
Please keep in your prayers the Pastoral Area initiatives at this time.

PLEASE NOTE NEW E-MAIL ADDRESS ABOVE:  

THE NOVENA FOR OUR LADY OF PERPETUAL SUCCOUR: Thank you for supporting this wonderful event in such great numbers. On your behalf, I thank Fr Charlie Corrigan and Brothers Michael and Royston for all their efforts, which I know will continue to bear fruit in many ways. For myself, I can only reiterate what I said last weekend: the experience in Clapham was utterly rewarding. I found the experience of returning to the place of my birth and upbringing and being able to share and minister far more moving than I had anticipated.

FROM FR TIM

THE NOVENA FOR OUR LADY OF PERPETUAL SUCCOUR: I am happy to report that I am having a wonderful time in Clapham. Demanding as it is to give four sessions each day, the response and encouragement of the community and the people is life-giving, and I feel truly blessed. Furthermore, the weather is quite magnificent, and I manage a couple of walks across the Common each day! Reports of the event in Liverpool are equally encouraging: may the Lord continue to bless all our efforts and may we all fittingly celebrate Mary’s Feast this coming Wednesday: A VERY HAPPY FEAST TO YOU ALL. This week we also have the FEAST OF SS PETER AND PAUL ON FRIDAY. PLEASE OBSERVE MASS TIMES ABOVE.

FROM FR TIM:

THE NOVENA FOR OUR LADY OF PERPETUAL SUCCOUR: Next Sunday Fr Charles Corrigan and the students will speak at all the Masses both here and at Bishop Eton about their plans for the nine days, which begin on Tuesday 19 June. I hope that there will be a wonderful response this year.  It can link into our prayerful preparations for the Eucharistic Congress and the Synod which will follow in 2020.

THE EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS: For anyone interested, it will be possible from tomorrow (11 June) to book directly to be a delegate at the Eucharistic Congress. Please go to the website:  http://www.jumpdp.com/adoremus2018

Please note there is a dedicated page on the Archdiocesan website - which has lots of useful information and links. http://liverpoolcatholic.org.uk/adoremus

COMINGS AND GOINGS: I am happy to report that Fr Tony Hunt returned to the monastery during the week, but the sepsis has certainly drained him of energy. Fr John Milcz now has an excellent care package in place, which means that both of them have regular visits each day to help them cope. Fr Barrie O’Toole remains in good spirits. Fr Andrew plans to visit him this coming week and will be away from Tuesday to Thursday.

THE SCHOOLS: Before the summer holidays, I hope to work with both Much Woolton and Bishop Eton in preparing some Eucharist Devotions for children, so that we will be primed and ready for the Eucharistic Congress when they return in September.

ADOREMUS NATIONAL EUCHARISTIC PILGRIMAGE & CONGRESS 2018:  

Eucharist is… Food for the Journey

We might do well to take a moment to thank God for all that we have received, materially and in prayer. All that we have faced in our lives we did not face alone. Always God’s strength and God’s love were at work in our hearts even when, and perhaps especially when, we did not know it at all. We can pray for those for whom the journey is hard. But we can pray too that God’s strength and love will be at work in our hearts to make us bread broken for others, bringing the nourishment of God’s love to the weary and downcast.

FROM FR TIM:

TODAY IS THE SOLEMNITY OF CORPUS CHRIST: In this year of the Eucharistic Congress, we pray that the Lord will deepen our understanding of and reverence for the gift of his Body and Blood in Holy Communion. We pray again for the families whose children are making their First Communion this year. This is the last weekend for First Communion Masses and the noon Mass on the next two Saturdays will be special celebrations for all the families who have taken part.

NOVENA IN HONOUR OF OUR MOTHER OF PERPETUAL SUCCOUR: (Tuesday 19 June to Wednesday 27 June): Fr Charles Corrigan and our students will lead the Novena at Bishop Eton and Fr Corrigan has requested that in the evening there should be a Novena Service, beginning at 7:00 pm. Therefore, the Mass timetable (both weekdays and weekends) will remain the same, but each evening, including Saturday and Sunday, there will be a Special Service which will not include the Eucharist. Posters and leaflets will soon be available for distribution. Meanwhile, please spread the word. Thank you.

COMINGS AND GOINGS:

  • Fr Andrew duly returned from a successful but exhausting international meeting of Marriage Encounter and has since dashed to London for a Redemptorist finance meeting.  
  • My visit to the Naval Base in Portsmouth at the beginning of last week was helpful and I will try and prepare well for the few days I will spend with the military chaplains in early July.
  • Fr Tony Hunt is gradually making progress in hospital.
  • Fr Jan Milcz has a helpful care package in place and is better.
  • Fr Barrie O’Toole continues to be cared for by his sister and the Health Service in North Yorkshire.
  • Each of them is grateful for your good wishes and prayers.

Pastoral Area Evening Prayer: Hope Chapel at 6:00pm this Wednesday, 6 June.

Funeral of Gracie Mendonça: 11:00am in the Cathedral this Monday (4 June).

RYM:  Meet this Tuesday 5th June for a walk between Bishop Eton and St Mary’s, beginning and ending with prayer. We’ll then go for a picnic and games in Reynolds Park, weather permitting! Come along and bring a friend and some snacks. Meet at the Crucifix in the grounds of Bishop Eton at 7:30 pm. Email for more details.

UCM MEETING: Wednesday, 6 June at 12:30pm in the parish hall. Looking forward to seeing members and any other ladies who would like to attend will be made very welcome. Please bring your lunch.

DIOCESAN LOURDES PILGRIMAGE: Everyone cannot go on the pilgrimage itself, but Fr Des Seddon, the organiser, is keen that we should all be associated with it. His letters are in the porch and I urge you to note his various suggestions

EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS: Preparations are in full swing and once again I remind you that Redemptorist Publications have produced a magnificently illustrated booklet, Adoremus Extra. They are available at the back of the church. It seems to me something of a bargain at £4.75, containing a wealth of material from some celebrated authors! It would be wonderful if every family had a copy so that we can all deepen our understanding of and devotion to the Blessed Sacrament. Adoremus Extra will also provide us with a wonderful souvenir of the event. We will order more copies if the first batch sells well.

There will soon be a display in the porch, identifying our parish representatives, who will attend the Congress and form the pastoral area reps for the Synod 2020.

TEA, COFFEE AND BISCUITS:  served every Sunday after the 11:00 am Mass in the parish hall. A warm welcome awaits you and it’s a great opportunity to meet other parishioners. Please do come and join us.

PARISH LISTENING PROCESS:  Thank you to those of you who have taken the time to share your views with a Parish Listener.  The Listening Process has been extended to allow more parishioners to have their say. There is still time to talk to a member of the Listening team should you wish to share your views.  The interviews are very informal and will only take about fifteen minutes of your time.

The questions are very simple, for example: 

What is your overall impression of the parish?
What strengths and weaknesses do you see now in the parish?
What would you like to see grow and develop over the next year?
What priorities do you think we should be working towards?

This is a great opportunity to have your say and shape the future of your parish. Your views really do count! Thank you.

APF RED MISSION BOXES:  The Annual Red Box Mass for supporters is at St Helen's church, Crosby on Saturday 16 June at 12:00 noon. Please see the poster in the porch for further details. All welcome!

NEW VOTIVE CANDLE SYSTEM: Please be aware, that the votives should always be lit with the gas lighters provided; they will burn for up to two hours and should never be snuffed out. 

KNIGHTS OF ST COLUMBA: meet every second Thursday of the month at 8:00 pm at St Francis of Assisi meeting rooms, Earp Street Garston L19 1RT.

Sponsorship forms will be available at the back of church and any donations would be gratefully received. Thank you!
