The Dome of Home Community Consultation

Help us win new, substantial new Heritage Lottery Funding (HLF) funding in a Heritage Grant to restore the Dome and main Sanctuary of Ss Peter & Paul and St Philomena Church by completing our new survey to prove to HLF that we have local support.

Chasing funding to restore Wirral’s landmark buildings and heritage is arduous at best of times. So far, we’ve achieved much after three successful HLF projects. There is much more to do – our work is not done!

For funding to complete the roof restoration, we need to consult YOU about the proposed activities. This next project focusses remedial works on the Dome itself, in a project worth over £500,000.

Encourage 5 other friends/family/acquaintances who don’t attend Ss Peter & Paul and St Philomena to do likewise. Survey closes 31st December 2018.

We’d love to hear what you think!

By HLF standards, successful projects don’t just mean good quality restoration work but outstanding activities to engage the Community. In 2018, the Dome won the Marsh Award for Innovative Church Projects, for its World War II Audio Tour for schools.

Free of charge HLF Activities might include:

• extending successful primary visits to secondary schools;
• producing a photographic ‘Reflection Book’ helping housebound and isolated reconnect with personal heritage;
• making an Interactive Photo Album to record heritage for future generations;
• developing an accessible Community Peace Garden.

Do you live near New Brighton or Wirral? Would these Activities engage you?

We have produced a community survey to help us make a good Second Round Application to win a substantial HLF Heritage Grant.

As a BIG THANK YOU, you will be entered for our free prize draw to win £50 which will be drawn on Epiphany, Sunday 6th January 2019 at the social following Mass.

 

If you are a younger person, we would also like to hear your views!

A special version of the survey  can be completed by clicking the link below. (N.B. you will not be asked for any personal details).

 

 

 

November List for the Holy Souls in Purgatory

November is the specific time of the year when we remember our loved ones who have died in recent times and over the years. If you would like your relative or friend to be remembered at Holy Mass, please provide the names of your deceased loved ones that you wish to be remembered and place them in an envelope (at the back of the church) with a discretionary offering and hand the envelope to one of the Priests.
