Taste and See Family Mass in June


by Fr. Bryan Cunningham on 06/06/2017

Welcome to our family Mass, Taste and See at the Shrine at 3.30pm on Sunday 11th June, Trinity Sunday.  Since we last got together the terrible events in Manchester Arena and in London have happened. The wonderful response highlighted with the Areana Concert in Old Trafford show the spirit and determination of our people. We remember with sadness the loss and pray in hope. It makes us feel all the more what is important to us , our family and the security to live our family life in joy, peace and love. After Mass we will have a ‘potluck meal’; what we share is what is on the menu. You are invited to bring a donation for our food and clothing bank for the homeless and the needy. See you at the Shrine

for London


by Fr. Bryan Cunningham on 04/06/2017

It is with great sorrow and consternation that we have to offer prayers on this Pentecost morning for those who have lost their lives on London Bridge and Borough Market at the hands of three crude evil men. Our hearts go out to the families of those who have lost, so violently, their loved ones. Our hearts ache for those people injured and maimed and for all their families. Thank you to the Police, Emergency Services, the Hospitals of London and all those who offered shelter and assistance to those Londoners and visitors of this great City threatened with senseless evil violence.

Pentecost is about new strength and hope. It is a fire of love that purifies us from all wish to use or abuse of others.  It is the light of truth and the beginning of reconciliation, the foundation of a World of Truth, Justice and Love.

For those who hold their dead and suffering children in their arms we can only offer the loving silence of solidarity and a prayer of condolence. At this point I would like to shout from the rooftops:  ”Maybe it’s because I am a Londoner”. I am from Coatbridge living in Greater Manchester. But today I am a Londoner.  And all the “Bees” of Manchester understand and are with you. God give us peace.

I am with you…Manchester


by Fr. Bryan Cunningham on 24/05/2017

We entrust all those who have died as the result of senseless evil violence to the heart of Mary and we remember the families now in grief.

O God, author and lover of peace, to know you is to live, to serve you is to reign; defend against every attack those who cry to you, so that we, who trust in your protection, may not fear the weapons of any foeThrough Christ our Lord.

We pray for all those who are maimed and injured and for your worried families. We thank the members of the NHS, the emergency services, for all who showed kindness and care on that terrible night and all those who have helped Manchester in this dark time. Click here for Poem from the Vigil

Covenant Mass in May Thursday, 18th May at 7.30pm


by Fr. Bryan Cunningham on 17/05/2017

Tomorrow is our Covenant Mass celebration and you are invited. Deepening our Covenant of Love means to see one another in our greatness. Pope Francis says in his letter on the joy of love in the family: The love of friendship is called “charity” when it perceives and esteems the “great worth” of another person. Beauty – that “great worth” which is other than physical or psychological appeal – enables us to appreciate the sacredness of a person, without feeling the need to possess it. In a consumerist society, the sense of beauty is impoverished and so joy fades.

Our Joy is knowing we belong to the family of God and help built a home in which love is at the heart. Please come along and join us for Mass at 7.30pm on Thursday 18th May at 7.30pm. Please bring donations for our food bank.
