FIRST WORLD DAY FOR GRANDPARENTS AND THE ELDERLY

Pope Francis has called for the Universal Church to celebrate the first World Day for Grandparents and Elderly on Sunday July 25th 2021. Every parish is asked to dedicate one of their Sunday Masses to Grandparents and the Elderly as this is the closest Sunday to the memorial of Jesus’ grandparents, Ss Joachim and Ann (July 26th) 

Our Parish would like to compile some images of Grandchildren giving their Grandparents a hug (or a virtual one if they are not able to do so in person) 

These can be emailed to Lianne Pap, the Marriage and Family Life Co-ordinator at:

TONY BROUGHAM RIP

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of our devoted parishioner, Tony Brougham. He died peacefully at home. His passing comes within a short time of the death of his wonderful wife, Mary. The parishioners at Our Lady and indeed the wider Catholic community in North Staffs will miss them both greatly. It is difficult to put into mere words the pious devotion and acts of charity that the Brougham couple performed each and everyday within the parish. They selflessly dedicated both their time and money into the day to day running of the church. Whether it be washing Altar vestments, visiting fellow parishioners when sick or housebound or assisting Fr. in his duties, The Broughams were always to be found offering their help willingly and with humbleness of heart. Their marriage was a shining example of the success of the Holy Sacrament of Marriage and the everlasting love that comes from a lifetime’s partnership, spent respectfully looking after one another and in turn, looking after those around them. 

Our gravest condolences are extended to the family and friends of the Broughams yet we can derive great comfort in the knowledge that these two bosom souls are reunited in eternal heaven…
