On 3rd July 2015 Archbishop Malcolm McMahon of Liverpool announced: “I have invited the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter to come to the archdiocese and to have responsibility for St Mary’s Church, Warrington. In due course this will become a centre for the celebration of the extraordinary form of Mass and the sacraments. The priests of this fraternity will not, however, assume pastoral responsibility for St Mary’s parish, which will be the responsibility of Fr David Heywood from September.”
We are grateful to Archbishop McMahon, O.P. for his invitation in the Liverpool Archdiocese; as well as to Abbot Cuthbert Madden, OSB of Ampleforth, for making the church available for us. We very much look forward to meeting with the faithful at St Mary's and with the clergy in the area.
