Taste and See Mass on Sunday 10th January 2016 at 3.30pm . This Mass, prepared by our Taste and See Team together with Fr Bryan is especially for families with young children. This year we Celebrate the Year of Mercy. Our Shrine is one of the five doors of mercy in the Salford Diocese and was blessed with all the Doors of Mercy throughout the world on December 13th 2015. Our journey to the Taste and See Mass is a pilgrimage to the “Holy Door”. Throughout this year wi will consider the Works of Mercy and consider the Works of Mercy: Jesus Christ is the face of the Father’s mercy. Feed the hungry & Give drink to the thirsty. Please come along to our Mass and join together in our programme and shared supper after holy Mass. You are invited to bring a contribution to our food-bank including winter woolies. We look forward to seeing you at the beginning of this New Year.
You are invited to the Taste and See Family Mass on Sunday 8th November at 3.30pm at the Shrine, St John Fisher’s Kearsley. After Mass we have input and a programme for the children. We conclude with a shared meal. Throughout this year we have considered the mission of the family especially today. Love is our mission – the family fully alive! Central to the mission of family is the formation of the children and the development of a family atmosphere in our homes. We learn that we belong in a family and our home is determined by the people we love and care for. This belongs to one of the top values we experience in family. The secure and sacred space of family allows us to grow in a network of personal bonds. We learn to value these bonds of love and how to develop our own network of those we love and care for. Anchored in love we are ready to go out and help many searching to build up the web of love in their own lives. This month and next we would be grateful if your donations for the ‘food bank’ was not food but took the form of socks and gloves to keep the homeless warmer this winter. Thank you. I look forward to seeing you.

You are invited to the Taste and See Family Mass on Sunday 11th October at 3.30pm. Family is at the centre of interest both in the Church and the world. Pope Francis has just returned from the World Conference for Families in Philadelphia and is now with the members of the General Synod on the mission and life of the family today. Throughout this year we have looked at the mission of the family in order to become a family fully alive.
Pertinent to this mission is that family means that mother and father work together to create a space of love in which their children can grow. Working together as man and woman and using the complementing gifts and talents which fathers and mothers have, spouses and parents create a world in miniature for their relationship to each other and fertile ground for their children to grow in love and happiness.
Mass will be at 3.030pm. Afterward Paul and Clare and big sister, Jessica, invite you to a shared meal to celebrate the Baptism of Lucy Martha Lyddieth Barnes. Please invite your friends to come and join us. Remember to bring donations for our food-bank. These are passed on to the Brothers of Charity to assist those in need.
