THANK YOU TO ALL WHO MADE THE
NOVENA TO MARY, UNTIER OF KNOTS
If you have not made a Novena before,
you might be interested to read the Introduction to Novena here
This is the DAILY NOVENA PRAYER
which was said at the conclusion of the session on each of the 9 days
:O Virgin Mary, faithful Mother who never refuses to come to the aid of your children;
Mother whose hands never cease to help,
because they are moved by the loving kindness that exists in your Immaculate Heart,
cast your eyes of compassion upon me and see the snarl of knots that exists in my life.
You know all the pains and sorrows caused by these tangled knots.
Mary, my Mother, I entrust to your loving hands the entire ribbon of my life.
In your hands there is no knot which cannot be undone.
Most Holy Mother, pray for Divine assistance to come to my aid.
Take these knots into your maternal hands this day;
I beg you to undo them for the glory of God, once and for all,
in the name of your Divine Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
It is with great sadness that the death is announced of the Right Reverend Vincent Malone,
Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus of Liverpool and Titular Bishop of Abora.
Bishop Malone died on Monday 18 May 2020, at the Royal Liverpool Hospital.
His funeral will take place on Monday 1st June
and prayers for the repose of his soul will be offered
during our live-streamed Mass at 12:10pm on that day

THERE IS NO CHANGE TO THE CURRENT SITUATION
Together with all the Bishops of England and Wales, the Archbishop has directed that no public acts of worship are to take place until further notice in any of our churches throughout the Archdiocese, including the Isle of Man. All churches and chapels throughout the Archdiocese remain closed until further notice.
The obligation to attend Sunday Mass and Holy Days is removed for as long as this crisis continues.
