Mass change - Holywell Fourth Sunday in March
Mon, 19 Mar 2018 00:00:00 GMT
St Winefride's Holywell In March, the fourth Sunday falls on the 25th March and this is Palm Sunday (Dominica II Passionis seu in Palmis). Ordinarily, we would have the usual Mass on the Fourth Sunday.For a variety of reasons, we have decided not have Mass at Holywell on Palm Sunday.However, there is a silver lining to this cancellation and that is we will have Mass a week later on Easter Day - 1st April.My thanks to Canon Doyle (celebrant) and Fr Roberto (Parish Priest) for their assistance.

Royal College of Nurses consider supporting abortion to birth
Sun, 18 Mar 2018 19:00:00 GMT
The Royal College of Nurses (RCN) are now consulting their members about whether or not the organisation should support the ‘decriminalisation’ of abortion.The RCN are trying to maintain that this consultation is not about the time limit for abortions nor is it about conscientious refusals. To state this is either wholly ignorant of what ‘decriminalisation’ means or is disingenuous.The Abortion Act 1967 is based on exemptions from prosecution under section 58 of th [...]

Crosses and Statues are veiled, a sure sign we are approaching Holy Week Today a new attitude is taken by our Holy Mother the Church. We see the statues and decorations covered in the Church to remind us of the impending suffering of our God and Savior Jesus Christ. We see in the last few lines of today’s Gospel that Jesus has hidden Himself from the Jews who have taken up stones to cast at Him.We likewise, often experience this apparent loss of God’s presence. Men take up ston [...]

The Third Sunday of Lent
Sat, 03 Mar 2018 18:00:00 GMT
"Blessed are they who hear the word of God and keep it.” These words of Our Lord in today’s Gospel put into perspective all the rest of its lessons.The devils who were cast out cannot return where the word of God is kept. The devils return (with seven others worse than themselves) only into souls that have not kept the word of God. Their souls were swept clean and made empty, they were adorned with the things of this world and not with the words of God. Souls left in this stat [...]
