We thank the parish leadership wholeheartedly for making this schedule change possible on this special occasion.

Canon Wiener will be away during the week of November 5th – 11th to participate as in the years before in a silent retreat preached at Maria Engelport in Germany.

There will be no Masses in the traditional Roman Rite at St. Winefride’s during that time.

His return to Shrewsbury is scheduled for Saturday, November 11th during the day to be the celebrant of the Requiem Mass on Remembrance Day on Sunday, November 12th.
Canon will celebrate all scheduled Masses with the indicated intentions in Maria Engelport.

Thank you for your understanding.

All Saints and All Souls

Holy Mass on the feast of All Saints, November 1st, 2023 (Holyday of Obligation), a sung Mass will be celebrated at 6:30pm. Please note, the morning Mass at 10:00am has been cancelled that day.

On All Souls’ Day, Thursday, November 2nd, 2023, a sung Requiem Mass will be offered at 6:30pm.

Brown Scapular enrolment

According to the century old Carmelite tradition, the brown scapular of the Carmelites was given by the Blessed Virgin to St. Simon Stock on July 16th in the year 1251. Pope Sixtus V approved a feast in 1587 that commemorates this important private revelation to the English man and crusader, St. Simon Stock in the South of England. If you wish to be enrolled in the confraternity of Our Lady of Mount Carmel by receiving the brown scapular, please  present yourself at the communion rail. Please obtain a brown scapular and hold it in your hand at the beginning of the short ceremony. Canon Wiener will bless the scapulars and then impose them individually.

Weekday Masses week commencing Monday 29th May

Masses (including Adoration and Benediction) have been cancelled from Tuesday 30th May to Friday 2nd June (inclusive).

The Canons of the Institute’s UK province will spend the octave of Pentecost together in Lanherne. This fraternal time together helps the Canons to continue their pastoral work and mission, “living the truth in charity.

Due to this absence, daily Mass will not be offered at St Winefride’s until Saturday 3rd June at 10:00 am followed by First Saturday devotions.

First Mass of a Newly Ordained Priest at Shrewsbury

On May 14th, we expect the newly ordained Canon Liam Dodd here in Shrewsbury.

Canon Dodd was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood on Saturday, April 1st, by His Eminence, Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, at the Church of Saints Michael and Gaetano, Florence.
Canon Dodd will celebrate a First Mass in Shrewsbury at St. Winefride’s church following which he will offer the blessing of a newly ordained priest to all who present themselves after Mass at the communion rail.

Those faithful in attendance at Mass gain a plenary indulgence (under the usual conditions) and an additional grace may be gained from receiving the first blessing of a newly ordained priest
