Feast of Pentacost Today we celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation for twelve of our young people who have been preparing for this important and beautiful day. We congratulate them and we shall continue to pray for them and their families as we look forward to their FIRST HOLY COMMUNION on Sunday the 1st of July. (click on heading for photo)

The Ascension of the Lord. Today was a busy day at English Martyrs as we celebrated the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord.  The children of the Parish also crowned Our Lady with a beautiful crown of flowers. They were rewarded for their beautiful singing of “As I kneel before you” with a small parcel of chocolate left over from the Grand Easter raffle!  (click on heading for photos)  Later in the Afternoon  our SVP Conference hosted a visit from a group of people from the SVP Conference at St John’s Bromley Cross Bolton. After Benediction in our beautiful church tea cakes and scones were served in celebration, even the weather played its’ part. Our re- furbished church is providing a wonderful venue for us to host these events. &nbs

Tabernacle Splender.

The beautiful new Tabernacle is now in place, thanks to Fred Arkwright’s woodwork skills. He has made a new shelf in “Cherry Wood’ on which is stood this historical tabernacle which has been refurbished.
