Growing Website: All the Sacraments... Architecture... Doctrine
October 4, 2016
Three recent additions to this website include:
1) Details on the availability of all seven Sacraments at St Mary's Shrine. Confirmations in the traditional form are available in London this 12 November, organised by the LMS. And they will be available here in the north thanks to the generosity of Archbishop Malcolm McMahon, who will confer Confirmations here at St Mary's on Saturday 20 May 2017. Click on the picture for details about enrolling in preparation courses for Baptism, First Holy Communion, Confirmation and Marriage, and for information on the remaining Sacraments.
2) For glimpses of the beautiful architecture and devotional art at St Mary's Shrine, and concise historical information, a few excerpts have been posted on the website from our excellent Guidebook, expanding the webpage on 'The Church' (with much more to come). Many thanks to Tim & Jane Wright for up-dating the Guidebook, building on the work of local historian Brian Plumb.
3) Participants of our Family Catechism Day's asked if the notes for the classes could be posted online. They can be viewed by clicking here. They are not stand alone notes, but are meant to jog the memory of those present at the classes, and perhaps give a taste to encourage others to come to future classes. Dates for the next three Family Catechism Days are 13 Oct, 17 Nov, 15 Dec, running 1-3pm, following the 12:10 Mass.
