From 6pm on Friday 17 November to 3pm on Sunday 19 November, a Vocation Discernment Weekend at St Mary's Warrington. For single Catholic men aged 18+. Facebook post here.
Is God calling ME? Matrimony, celibacy, monastery, seminary, Fraternity? If you are a single Catholic man aged 18+, come and discern with us at St Mary's Priory & Church. Shrine Rector Fr de Malleray, FSSP will lead the Weekend, assisted by Fr James Mawdsley, FSSP. There will be talks, prayers (Divine Office in our beautiful church), Holy Mass and informal chatting with fellow guests. Possibility of private meetings with Fr de Malleray, and of confession.
We have currently five young men from England & Wales in formation at our two international seminaries, plus another two who will begin formation shortly. Two of our deacons from England were ordained priests at St Mary's Warrington on 17th June 2017 by Archbishop McMahon of Liverpool. Those were the first EF priestly ordinaitons by a diocesan bishop in England in fifty years. Another deacon will be ordained next 9th June, also at St Mary's Warrington. Worldwide, our Fraternity ordains over 12 priests per year. In 2017, it will have been 19, thank God.
Looking back, we in Great Britain give thanks for the ordinations of: Fr Konrad Loewenstein in 2002; Fr Brendan Gerard in 2006; Frs Matthew Goddard and William Barker in 2009; Fr Simon Harkins in 2010; Fr Matthew McCarthy in 2011; Fr Ian Verrier in 2015; Fr James Mawdsley in 2016; Frs Alex Stewart and Krzysztof Sanetra in 2017; (and as announced:) Fr Seth Phipps on 9th June 2018. Please pray for them, as we assure you of our prayers.
