Congratulations to our seminarian Gwilym, from Wales, ordained Porter and Lector at our seminary in Bavaria yesterday (10 Feb).
That same day, 23 FSSP seminarians altogether were ordained to the minor orders and subdiaconate.
Thank you for your prayer and involvement during the gathering of the FSSP clergy in Great Britain last week. We were six priests staying at St Mary’s. As may not have happened for decades, the four altars were used for Holy Masses. We also sang Lauds and Vespers in the beautiful choir stall. We had splendid meals at the Priory and went on an excursion-pilgrimage to Lancaster, where we prayed on the site of the martyrdom of many Catholic priests, including our own Blessed James Bell.
When Fr Loewenstein arrives, it will be seven of us in this country – or eight if one includes Fr Brendan Gerard, FSSP coming to help in Reading during Holy Week.
Chair of St Peter on 22 February, 1st class feast in the FSSP, with plenary indulgence for members of the Confraternity of St Peter.
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.
Happy Shrove Tuesday: like in past years, Frs de Malleray and Verrier will join the priests and deacons of the Warrington deanery for a festive dinner – ending before midnight (!) when Ash Wednesday fast begins…
Please bring your palms from last year’s Palm Sunday to be burned for the ashes of Ash Wednesday.
Allow peaceful prayer vigils outside abortuaries. Please fill in the online survey from the government: www.homeofficesurveys.homeoffice.gov.uk/s/8KA5N/
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.

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.
