News from around the Archdiocese of Liverpool

Cover July_Layout 1

This month we pay tribute to the work of our Catholic schools as we cover the annual Archdiocesan School Awards ceremony which took place at the end of May.  Each year it offers us an opportunity to say thank you to all the people: pupils, staff and governors, who work in our schools.


The Lourdes Pilgrimage begins on Friday 19 July with the pilgrims returning on Friday 26 July.  The Lourdes Departure Mass will be celebrated in the Metropolitan Cathedral at 5.00 pm on Sunday 14 July; all are welcome to attend and pray for our pilgrims as they travel in our name to Lourdes.


As July begins, we look forward to the ordinations which are to take place in the archdiocese.  On Saturday 13 July Archbishop Malcolm will ordain Thomas Clarke to the priesthood at St Charles church in Aigburth.  On the previous Sunday, 7 July, he will ordain Gergely Juhasz, Peter Mawtus, Michael Moffatt and Paul Rooney to the permanent diaconate in the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King at 3.00 pm.  In these final days of preparation, we pray for all the ordinands as they look forward to their ministry among us.
