The Province of England-Ireland are Pleased that Mary has accepted to become our Provincial. She writes to us:-
“To all my dear sisters in the Province
My dear sisters in the Heart of Jesus and Mary, Greetings of peace and joy on the holy feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary! May all our hearts find in it the source of happiness and communion! As I accept the mission of Christ on this solemn feast day tomorrow, to serve this Province of England and Ireland, I humbly ask for your prayers and blessings.I am reminded of the scripture passage from the Book of Ruth:”Wherever you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.” 1: 16 May the Good Lord and His most Holy Mother bless me a ‘foreigner in your land’ who is on His mission, through each and every one of you, as I hold you all in my heart. May my service among you bring joy and happiness to us all and bear fruit abundantly for His greater glory.” Our response can only be Thank you and WELCOME.

LOURDES – Youth Ministry – Appeal
Each year youth groups travel to Lourdes to assist with Adults who need a support and with sick pilgrims. In this way the youth enjoy the company of those less fortunate and the Adults and youth gain new friends, deepen their faith and experience communal service to each other. Last year the youth from the local parish were not able to experience this due to financial difficulty, so this year a fund raiser is being organised to try and enable them to go.
Please watch out for further information and if anyone would volunteer to assist in organising an event please contact Jessie 0151 546 5892
