May they all rest in peace, Amen.

we celebrate the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul.  They are the two pillars on whom our Lord built his Church and to whom he entrusted the faith.  Their own faith had been tested, Peter denied Christ and Paul persecuted Christ in his followers.  Later their faith was strengthened and they dedicated their lives to the spread of the gospel. We give thanks to the Lord for giving us these great apostles to inspire us.

First Holy Communion - Today we rejoice with our children and their families on a very special occasion: Callum Reay, Harry Doyle, Bobby Edge, Jamie Allen, Madison Higgins (Vigil Mass); Lily Fleming, Kyle O'Neill, Abbie Lloyd (10 a.m. Mass). We pray and hope that you will always treasure the memory of this day, and that it will be a time of special blessings for your families.

Sisters of Evron - Today we welcome Sr. Phyllis to speak at the Masses on the vocation to the Religious life, particularly on her own vocation as a Sister of Our Lady of Evron. The timing is perfect, in that the Sisters of Evron are celebrating some special jubilees this year and Pope Francis has dedicated 2015 as one of prayer for Vocations in the whole Church.  A little bit on the history on the Congregation: the Sisters of Charity of Our Lady of Evron were founded in 1862 by a young French widow called Perrine Thulard.  The aim of the foundation was: ‘The Education of the girls in the countryside in that rural part of France and the care and visitation of the sick in their own homes'.

The first Sisters of Evron came to England in 1904 and settled in Filey, East Yorkshire, where set up a boarding school, and also visited the sick and the poor in the area. In 1912 the Sisters came to Harrytown and set up a community in Harrytown Hall.  They opened a school in January 1913.  This was the beginning of Harrytown High School which is still a thriving School today, even though the Sisters are no longer in residence there.

In 1975 the Sisters came to Our Lady's Parish, first living at 51 Lowfield Road, before moving to ‘Shalom' at 1 Adswood Road West, Cale Green in 1979.  Today we recognise with gratitude their presence in and great service to Our Lady's parish.  Their witness in our midst is above all one of welcome, commitment and joy.  We rejoice with the following Sisters celebrating special jubilees:  Sister Gertrude who lives at St. Bernadette's Brinnington is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee (60 years).  The following Sisters are celebrating their Golden Jubilee (50 years).  Sr. Pauline and Sr. Irene, Manchester Community, Sr. Louise, Liverpool Community. Sr. Clare who was professed in France and her fellow professed Sister Jeannine who has travelled from France.  We also welcome Sister Therese who has travelled with her.

St. James High School - we congratulate the pupils who received special awards at the Lower School Presentation Evening last Thursday evening.  It was good to share the occasion with them.  Our own Fran Fitton (Bennet) was one of the Special guests presenting the awards.
