We sometimes publish News items relating to events held elsewhere. Generally we do this when there is a clear link between the event and the mission of the Centre. So we would probably advertise an external event where a Xaverian is to be a guest speaker.
Do you wonder what all the fuss is about Climate Change? Does it matter? Is it somebody else’s problem?
Some countries are more exposed than others to the effects of Climate Change. Come and listen to a salutary talk about the Future of Food at the St Wilfrid’s Parish Centre on the 30th September 2019 at 7pm.
News just in of a joint venture between Lancaster, Liverpool and Salford Diocese supported by Bishop Paul. Fr Hugh Pollock from Kendal is one of the speakers. It is on the feast day of St Peter and Paul on 29th June. See poster for details.
Shirley Russo will be lining up at the start of the London Marathon on Sunday 28th April. She took on this challenge with a hope that she could raise £2000 for the Jesuit Missions. Both the running and fund raising are tough challenges.
We can’t help Shirley go the distance but we can help her raise mission funds. If you want to encourage her you can donate through Virgin Money Giving.
You can follow Shirley’s progress during the race by downloading the Marathon App onto your smart phone. The App can be downloaded from here. Shirley’s bib number is 43232.
We have an invitation from Frank McGrath to attend a Rosary Service Tuesday 7th May 2pm at the Carmelite Monastery Church. Frank anticipates that about 80 will attend including 36 year 4 pupils from St Clare’s primary school.
Prayers will be offered for all expectant mothers and their unborn children and there will be a talk by guest speaker Fr. Andrew Allman.
This unfortunately came in too late to make the Sunday News Letter.
Preston Faith Forum invite you to attend a vigil for those killed and injured in the terrorist attacks in New Zealand on Friday.
If you can attend it would be good to show your solidarity and defiance against the rise of hatred and violence. It is important to come together and declare that we will not be intimidated or divided.
Details Date: Monday 18th March 2019 Time: 6:30pm Location: Preston Flag Market (outside the Harris Library)

An update on this event. Fr Xavier is going to speak at St Wilfrid’s Parish Centre in the afternoon and at the Xaverian Mission in the evening. He will present us with an interesting question “Is Leadership too important to be left to Leaders?”
