Stay with us Lord JPG

We start with the joy and triumph of Palm Sunday today. Join us in prayer this afternoon at 4pm for Stations of the Cross and Benediction and remember the additional 7pm Mass on Wednesday.
During this week we are invited to accompany Jesus in the journey from the joy of today through His betrayal, rejection, suffering and death through to His glorious resurrection
We have also added a LENT page to try to collate all our Lenten information on one page

PALM SUNDAY TODAY We will be carrying the Cross up Knowl Hill accompanied by members of other local churches.  We have stops to say the Stations on the way. Start either at St Vincent's at 1:50pm and/or at Owd Betts at 3:00pm. If you wish, just accompany us from St Vincent's to St Paul's. See notice at back of Church for further details. All welcome!

During Lent there is always a collection for Cafod from Family Fast Day. Please take an envelope for the Lenten Family Fast Day offerings. We will have a retiring collection this weekend for those who wish to contribute as a result of your Lenten Fasting!
This year there is an added incentive in that the UK government has promised to match every pound and penny you give to CAFOD’s Lenten appeal. See our Lent page for more information.

This year’s Triduum will be celebrated here at St. Vincent’s as follows:-
Holy Thursday – Mass of the Lord’s Supper at 7.30pm.
Good Friday – Celebration of the Lord’s Passion at 3pm.
Easter Vigil at 6.30pm on Holy Saturday.                          
Easter Morning Mass at 9am and 11am.  


The Bishops of England and Wales have prepared these reflections and ask that they are made available to all as we celebrate the Feast of the Holy Family. Please download and read this short document and share your thoughts with one another especially in your families. Bishop John Arnold asks that you consider sending your thoughts in writing to him at
Wardley Hall, Wardley Hall Road, Worsley, Manchester. M28 2ND.
He cannot promise to answer all submissions but will read and consider what you write and will use it as part of his submission to Cardinal Vincent Nichols and to Bishop Peter Doyle, who are to be the representatives from England and Wales at the second Synod on the Family next October in Rome.
