The Archbishop has given permission for three churches in our Pastoral Area to open private prayer

St Benedict’s, St Joseph’s in Penketh, and St Mary’s Shrine.  These churches have been chosen because they are normally open each day for private prayer.

St Mary’s Shrine will open from Monday 15 June at the following times:

Monday to Saturday              8.00 – 10.00 am

                                       4.00 – 6.00 pm                   

Sunday                               2.00 – 5.00 pm

St Benedict’s will open from Tuesday 16 June at the following times:

Monday to Friday                  10.30 am – 2.30 pm

Sunday                               10.00 am – 12.30 pm

St Joseph’s, Penketh, will open from Wednesday 17 June at the following times:

Monday to Friday                  10.00 am – 1.00 pm

If you call into any of these churches, you will be asked to sanitise your hands on entering and leaving, keep to a one-way system, and be guided to where you can sit or kneel.  Social distancing must be followed at all times.  Unfortunately, toilet facilities will not be available. Please note:  there is no obligation to come to church, and praying in our own way at home remains the norm at this time.
