News has filtered through that Fr de Malleray FSSP and Fr Marcus Williams FSSP are now resident in the presbytery of St Mary's Church in Warrington. A Missa Cantata was celebrated there last Sunday, which I am told was well attended. The church, which has been described as one of the finest churches of Edward Welby Pugin, has a strong tradition of good music.
The ministry of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter at St Mary's Church will be officially inaugurated with a Solemn Mass to be held at noon next Saturday 21st November, the Feast of the Presentation of Our Lady. The Most Reverend Malcolm McMahon OP, Archbishop of Liverpool, will preside at the throne, and Rt Reverend Cuthbert Madden OSB, Abbot of Ampleforth will also be present. St Mary's Church was founded by Ampleforth Abbey, and staffed by monks of Ampleforth until recently.
The church is in Buttermarket Street, a short distance to the East of the town centre, and just outside an inner ring road. Parking should not be too difficult in the nearby streets, and the church is within walking distance of the railway station.
