On December 8th, the feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, primary patroness of our Institute, we will be able to celebrate a sung Mass followed by a solemn consecration to the Immaculate Conception at 6:30 pm (instead of at the usual time at 10:00 am). We thank the parish leadership wholeheartedly for making this schedule change possible on this special occasion.

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

Sunday Coffee Hour: More help needed

Dear Faithful,

Many of us appreciate very much the reception in the hall after the 12:30 pm Mass. It gives our families a chance to get together, to meet and greet and to forge or renew friendships. Most of our faithful drive a long way to and from Mass, and the reception with refreshments is therefore a welcome occasion, especially for those families with little children.

I want to express my sincere gratefulness toward those ladies who have prepared the coffee hour over the recent years faithfully by providing sandwiches and other foods, tea and coffee, who overlooked the event itself and then cleaned the hall carefully afterwards.

However, for the relatively small number of team members, the hospitality on all Sundays has become too difficult to organise. I am kindly asking you therefore for more help and support. If you feel able and would enjoy to help with the reception, please contact Adeline Rayment at 07530-521-568 or at you very much!

With the assurance of my prayers and blessings for all of you and your families,

Canon Wiener

Thank you

Thank you all very sincerely for your very kind and generous participation in the preparations and celebration of the important feast of Christ the King last Sunday. Many of you had helped tidying up the parish grounds one week before and all of you have contributed to the joyful and very beautiful celebration on the feast itself. I thank you wholeheartedly for your kindness you are showing toward me and for your generous gifts you gave me on the titular feast of our Institute.

I understand that by showing your affection toward your local pastor you also wish to demonstrate your love for our dear Institute which is the spiritual family of us all. Your support of our seminary in Gricigliano in Tuscany will be very helpful: the second collection on the feast of Christ the King this year brought £644.74. Also in the name of my superiors and all seminarians, I thank you for this most generous contribution and support of the priestly formation at our motherhouse.

May God bless you and your families always and
especially in this very difficult time for the Church and the world.

With my prayers and my blessing for you and your families,

Canon Michael K. Wiener
