Seafarers and fishers play a vital role in all of our lives, but they often work in difficult, hazardous conditions. Sea Sunday is when the church prays for all those who live and work at sea. Your support will make a big difference to seafarers and fishers in need. There will be a collection after all masses so please give generously. Thank you.

No UCM meeting this week. Next meeting will be on Wednesday 17th July at 7.30pm.

Can you help bring back a child’s smile this summer? Over 330,000 children in our diocese are now living in poverty.  Our diocesan charity, Caritas Salford, has found demand for its services to support them and their families has grown significantly recently, with hardworking families significantly affected and experiencing acute crisis. Can you help? Find out simple ways you can take action, or make a donation to help children in your area now here: poverty

A big thank you to all parishioners who willingly volunteer their time in any way to help maintain the church both inside and out. It is very much appreciated!

Work has been carried out by a company to repair and service the two flagpoles that were vandalised and broken at a cost of £600.00.

The whole church in England and Wales will from Advent use new scriptural translations for our daily readings. These have been beautifully produced but cost £803.25. If you wish to sponsor any of the four volumes they can be inscribed in memory of a loved one. Please speak to Fr Brady.

Join us on Sunday 21st July as we gather together in prayer for the Pre-Departure Mass of our diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes. Whether you’re travelling to Lourdes or are looking to join in prayer at home, you are welcome to the Mass at 5.30pm at St Patrick’s church, Collyhurst. Mass will be celebrated by Canon Michael Cooke, along with clergy from the diocese, with music from our wonderful Lourdes Choir. There will be refreshments and a chance to catch up with friends after Mass.



The instructions for missionaries are shaped by the urgency of the Kingdom. The Twelve are to travel light for speed. They should wear sandals rather than go barefoot, also for speed and security. They are to rely for their provisions on the welcome they receive and, if they are unwelcome, they should not waste time on those who reject them. Did Jesus think that the Kingdom or Kingship of God would finally burst on the world in his own time, that there was so little time to spare? In one way it did – at his death and Resurrection, which fulfilled God’s plan and restored us to friendship with God. In another way the Kingdom is still in the future: the reign of peace and justice is not yet established. There is still sorrow, distress, enmity, fraud, jealousy and plenty of other evils which fracture God’s Kingship. We are still imperfect reflections of the light of Christ, still pilgrim members of a pilgrim Church. Our efforts are often feeble, even when we try to walk in Christ’s footsteps. We cannot sit back complacently, any more than the missionaries of Jesus’ own time. The task of establishing the Kingdom is still imminent. How can we missionaries best bring Christ’s light and God’s joy to the world?

BAPTISMS Please see Fr. Brady after Mass if you would like your child to be baptised. A baptismal certificate for one of the parents must be provided as evidence of baptism in a Roman Catholic Church before a baptism date can be given. We welcome parents and children and by attending Masses at the weekend on Saturday at 5.30pm, Sunday at 9.00am or 10.00am which fulfil the Sunday obligation. All Catholics are OBLIGED to celebrate Mass on EVERY Sunday.

BAPTISM CERTIFICATE COPIES REQUESTS For those requesting copies of baptism certificate the office can be contacted initially and the certificate can be collected at any of the weekend Masses. This is also to encourage people to come to Mass.

SICK AND HOUSEBOUND If you know of anybody who would like Fr Brady to visit, could you please give him their name and address with postcode and a contact telephone number. Thank you.

MASS INTENTIONS AND NEWSLETTER INCLUSIONS The practice of requesting a Mass to be offered for loved ones, living or deceased, is a beautiful and wonderful part of our Catholic Tradition. Continuing this long-standing practice, you can remember someone who has died recently or many years ago. The Mass can also make beautiful gifts for any special occasion: birthdays, anniversaries, in thanksgiving for a prayer answered etc. You can offer an intention for anybody who is struggling with a serious illness or other difficulties of life. Please hand in any Mass Intentions and items for the bulletin before Thursday as the newsletter is printed on Friday Morning. There are Mass Intention Envelopes provided on the table in the Atrium. Please provide a contact number with Mass Intentions so that any discrepancies can be resolved. Thank you.
