New Website: www.fssp.co.uk
The FSSP in the UK & Ireland has a new website.
It is a more unified and accessible design, reflecting the growth of our Fraternity in these Isles. In particular, you can now enter your own contact details and amend them at any time as you see fit. You can subscribe to our various circular emails and support any specific apostolate. There is also a Google calendar for each Mass centre. Thank you to Fr James Mawdsley, FSSP who coordinated this improved version of the website over the past few months.

Please bring your palms from last year’s Palm Sunday to be burned for the ashes of Ash Wednesday.
Welcome to Frs John Emerson, FSSP, Matthew Goddard, FSSP, James Mawdsley, FSSP and Patrick O’Donohue, staying at St Mary’s Priory with Frs de Malleray and Verrier from Tuesday to Thursday for the yearly gathering of FSSP clergy in Great Britain.
We thank the members of the faithful who kindly volunteered to clean the Priory and cook, and our fellow diocesan priest who will cover on Wednesday when we go on excursion/pilgrimage.
As announced, Fr Konrad Loewenstein, FSSP will arrive shortly after Ash Wednesday to take up his new position as Shrine Assistant.
Altogether, it will be 7 FSSP priests serving full time in the UK.
Sacraments: A Confirmation class will begin shortly. Please contact us if you or someone you know would like to take part. Marriage Preparation is also taking place at St Mary’s Priory. Contact us if interested. Again, contact us if you wish to make your first Holy Communion at St Mary’s next June.
Ash Wednesday coming up:
for every Catholic aged 18 to 59 inclusive.
One full meal permitted on that day. In addition, two other meals may be taken which, when combined, are less than a full meal.
Pregnant women and sick persons are dispensed, but should offer another sort of sacrifice instead.
2) Abstinence from meat: from age 14.
Please note that Valentine’s Day, falling this year on Ash Wednesday, does not dispense from these rules.
On Ash Wednesday, attending Holy Mass and receiving the blessed ashes is not compulsory, but strongly recommended.
Altar Servers’ Training Weekend 2-4 March: Any men from 15 to 75 are welcome as day participants. Single Catholic young men 18-30 are welcome full board, staying at St Mary’s Priory. Classes for Low Mass, Sung Mass and Benediction. Full schedule soon to be advertised. Register interest now with Fr Verrier, FSSP: firstname.lastname@example.org
Saturday 10th February, at 1pm, monthly gathering of the Young Adults & Young Professionals at St Mary's Priory. After a convivial pizza lunch, talk and discussion on:
Liturgical Gestures and other non verbal communication at Holy Mass. Come and learn why and when we kneel, sign ourselves, bow, genuflect, walk in procession; and why different colours, why incense and so many other non written signs to help our prayer."
With the Mothers' Prayer Group now taking place every Wednesday at 1pm (every mum welcome), would the Divine Mercy Group like to meet earlier? Still on the second Wednesday of each month, but before Mass rather than after. We suggest 11:00am, so as to keep the daily Rosary at 11:30am.
Thank you for your dedication and support to the liturgical and devotional life at St Mary’s Shrine, in particular those involved with singing; cleaning; flower arranging; welcoming visitors and handing hymnbooks and bulletins; collection baskets and counting; maintenance; sacristy supply; bell ringing; rosary and devotions.
Holy Communion Reminder:
To receive Holy Communion, one must be 1) a Roman Catholic 2) in state of grace (no grave sin unabsolved on one’s conscience) and 3) have fasted for at least one hour.
In the traditional Latin rite used at St Mary’s, Holy Communion is received kneeling (if one can), and in any case on the tongue: thank you very much in advance.
Please hold Communion plate against your throat if no server is available.
Please use the entire width of the Communion rail, from one wall of the church all the way to the opposite wall, avoiding any gaps. This will make distribution quicker. Thank you.
Watch Holy Mass at St Mary’s daily on www.livemass.org. The Mass of the day can be watched for 24hrs and that of the Sunday for the entire week.
