SUPPORT FOR UKRAINE
Archdiocese of Liverpool embarks on sixth Ukrainian trip to deliver essential aid
Our sixth consignment of the #Liverpool4Ukraine appeal recently set off for the Ukrainian border. A 12-tonne vehicle will transport goods including medical supplies, toiletries, crutches, Zimmer frames, blankets and blow-up mattresses.
Donations for the appeal are still welcome, and can be made here:
Volunteer Helpers at St Mary's- can you help?
The day-to-day operation of our Parish depends on the involvement of volunteer helpers and we should all be very grateful to the parishioners, and others, who currently volunteer their time. Not surprisingly, perhaps, our volunteer "pool" has reduced in numbers over the last couple of years and we are asking you to consider if you can join any of the following teams. If you can please contact the relevant person named below, Fr Gerry or Deacon Gerry Fishwick. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
ALTAR SERVERS we have in the past recruited altar servers from our previous years first Holy Communicants. If you know of any person young or not so young who would like to serve Sunday Mass on a monthly rota please contact Michael Thompson.
EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS are needed to visit the homes of a small number of people once a fortnight to take Holy Communion. Please contact Deacon Gerry Fishwick.
READERS particularly at 8.30 Mass. Please contact Flora Bell.
CATECHISTS to help with training for the sacraments. Most of which takes place in the parish centre. Full training material is provided. Please contact Marie Tootell.
GREETERS are required at the 10.30 Mass. We no longer have anyone greeting people and handing out Hymn Books, News Letters etc. at this Mass. If you can help with this please contact Fr Gerry.
CLEANERS are required to join a rota to help clean the Church. Please contact Margaret Hill.
PARISH and GROUNDS MAINTENANCE if you can spare a few hours a month to join a small team keeping the grounds and buildings tidy please contact Nick Fish or Peter Kitching.
Communicating with you
As a key part of our Parish implementation of the Archdiocesan Pastoral Plan we want to make sure that our communication with the Parish Community is as good as it can be.
To this end we want to be able to communicate widely via email - many Parishioners (and others who want to be part of the wider Parish Community) have already registered their email contact details with us and are receiving the current communications - we are now circulating the Parish Newsletter and Deanery and Archdiocesan news on a weekly basis to these subscribers in addition to ad-hoc Parish news as required. If you haven't already subscribed to the Parish mailing list you are strongly encouraged to do so - to do this please enter your contact details by following THIS LINK.
Note that you don't need to re-register if you have previously done so!
