Holy Week and Easter Services

For the times of all services and the sacrament of reconciliation please click on the heading above or take a leaflet from the newsletter stand. Please note there will not be a Parish Reconciliation Service here at St Peter’s. Details of services in other parishes are listed.

Easter Offering

Your Easter Offerings, along with the Christmas Offerings and Mass Stipends go to provide the priest’s monthly ‘salary’. Envelopes are available at the back of the church for those who wish to make an Easter offering. If you have planned giving envelopes please use the Easter offering envelope available inside your PG Box. Many thanks

Easter Thank Yous

Thank you to all the many, many parishioners who contributed in any way to our parish celebrations on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Day – to those who cleaned, prepared and decorated the church with flowers and plants, who made the Easter Garden; to our welcomers, ushers, collectors, Readers, Eucharistic Ministers, singers, musicians and altar servers; to our Confirmation candidates for preparing and presenting our Family Stations of the Cross on Good Friday; to those who brought up the Holy Oils and Offertory gifts; to those who prepared refreshments, counted collections; to Jennifer for all her background preparation and last, but certainly not least, to Fr. Sean for leading and presiding at a most prayer-filled and dignified set of ceremonies.

Thank you to our RCIA Catechists who have worked for many months with our candidates who were received into the Church at the Easter Vigil and to their sponsors for their support.

Priest General Surgery

Please note Fr Sean will not be holding a surgery this week (Holy Week). The next session will be posted in the newsletter.

Passion Play – Ten Ten Theatre

In 2013, Ten Ten Theatre – The Catholic professional theatre company – staged a Passion Play on the Stations of the Cross involving over 250 people from the local churches and schools in Runcorn and Frodsham, in the North-West of England. The final performance took place in the town’s main shopping centre on Holy Saturday. It was a profound and moving experience for those who took part and for those who saw the event. One year on, we would like to share this experience with you. On Palm Sunday, the film of the performance of “The Runcorn Passion” will be released online. We will also begin an eight-day daily reflection on the Stations of the Cross written by people of Runcorn and Frodsham, for Holy Week. You can sign up to our Mailing list here or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.  A short film about the making of the Runcorn Passion can bee seen here.
