WORLD MISSION SUNDAY – 21st OCTOBER: It is the one day in the year that Pope Francis asks for your extra generosity. On this day, collections will be taken up throughout the world and used to help support missionaries who bring faith, hope and love to those who are suffering. On this day, your generosity will ultimately help build churches, hospitals, schools and vocations in countries where the Church is too young or poor to support itself

ST. MARY’S OFFERTORY COUNTERS REQUIRED Parish volunteers count the weekly collection immediately following Sunday 11:00am Mass. At the moment we have only three teams with three or four people in each team. We need at least 4 more people to make a fourth team, so that each team would only be required to count once a month. We are looking for anybody who could spare just one hour after the Sunday Mass to count the collection money in the Meeting Room in the Presbytery. Richard Molloy manages and trains our offertory counters. If you are interested in serving in this valuable ministry, please contact Richard on 07791 925 190 or leave your name and contact number at the office.

COFFEE MORNING: The Macmillan Coffee Morning last Sunday at St. Richard’s raised £279.00. Many thanks to all who supported and organised this event.

The Slipper Chapel state of Our Lady of Walsingham will visit every English Catholic Diocese and Cathedral between 2018-2020 as we prepare for the rededication of England as the Dowry of Mary. The statue will come to Salford Cathedral on the weekend of 18th-20th October 2018. For full details of the weekend programme please see flyers at the back of the church or visit

FUNDRAISER EVENT: Friday 26th October at St. Mary’s Parish Centre 7.30pm till late. Dancing to Pat Jordan and Finians Rainbow. Tickets £5 on sale this Sunday. Proceeds towards the cost of re-surfacing St. Mary’s Car Park.

CHRISTMAS FAIR: St. Mary’s Christmas Fair will take place this year on Sunday 16th December at 12noon in the Parish Centre. Volunteers are needed to run the various stalls. Please DON’T leave it to someone else. St. Mary’s needs YOUR help now. If you are able to help to run a stall or help with set up, or clear up please contact the office.

BINGO: Every Sunday at 8pm in the Lounge area of the parish community centre. Come and join us for a fun filled evening where you could be the lucky winner.
