The Mission

Our Mission will be launched by the visiting priests, Fr. Philip McGovern and Fr. Robert Sugg, at the 6:30 pm Mass on Saturday 23rd November. Come and join the priests and the Parish Community after the Mass in the Parish Centre. Food and drink will be available so come, meet the priests, talk to old acquaintances and make new friends.

On Sunday 24th November the visiting priests will be preaching at all the Masses, which will be at their usual times.

Every morning during the week, there will be a special ‘Workers’ Mass’ at 7.00 am. If you miss breakfast don’t worry, tea and toast will be on offer in the Parish Centre after Mass, to sustain you on your way to work.

At 12:15 pm every day during the week, there will be a lunchtime Mass followed by soup and rolls served in the Parish Centre.

On Wednesday, St John’s Church, Halton, will receive a visit from the mission priests at the 10:00 am Mass. Tea and toast will be provided afterwards.

Parish Exhibition

While in the Parish Centre, be sure to take a look at the Parish Exhibition. Here you will find displays from many of the groups in the Parish describing what they do and, if you like what you see, how you can get involved.
