Our Year of Faith, with our helpful guide &  ‘Catechism’ the “YOUCAT”. Our next Session is this Saturday 24th (the last Saturday in the month) and will begin at 10 am in the Sacristy here at St Alban’s.

Our ‘theme’ for prayer and thoughts will be “WHO ARE WE?” Who are we  - before God  /   with each other  /   and in our life as part of God’s family, the Church. Some helpful reading from the YOUCAT is from pages 162 to 179  (or if you go by the Yellow circle numbers it is 279 to 320. The ‘meetings are more thoughtful & prayerful than anything else. No one will feel ‘threatened or worried’ at them. No one will be ‘made to speak out loud’ !! But we do have time for shared thoughts.. The sessions will last around 30 minutes and no more than 40.

This Session two will be repeated on Saturday 1st December at the Hall next to Good Shepherd Church, also at 10 am. Hopefully be having this at each church it gives us all more choice of when to come.


Annual Mass for the Deceased Priests & Laity of the Deanery will take place this coming Tuesday 20th November at 10am. This year our mass will take place at the English Martyrs Church in Whalley. If you are able to join the priests of the Deanery at this mass, well that would be lovely. It is good to pray for our loved ones who have made the final journey to Almighty God.

Father:  The Lord be with you.      Our New Response:  AND WITH YOUR SPIRIT



The New I Confess                           I confess to almighty God

And to you, my brothers and sisters,

That I have greatly sinned,

In my thoughts and in my words, In what I have done

And in what I have failed to do,

Through my fault, through my fault

Through my most grievous fault.

Therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-virgin, All the angels and saints,

And you, my brothers and sisters to pray for me to the Lord my God  





Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to people of good will.

We praise you, we bless you, we adore you, we glorify you, we give you thanks for your great glory,
Lord God, heavenly King, O God, almighty Father.

Lord Jesus Christ, Only Begotten Son, Lord God, Lamb of God,
Son of the Father, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us;
you take away the sins of the world, receive our prayer;

you are seated at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us.

For you alone are the Holy One,  you alone are the Lord,
you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit,  in the glory of God the Father. Amen



I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages.

God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come. Amen


Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts.
Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes
in the name of the Lord.

Hosanna in the highest.

Priest: The Lord be with you.
People: And with your spirit.
Priest: Lift up your hearts.
People: We lift them up to the Lord.
Priest: Let us give thanks
to the Lord our God.
People: It is right and just

Priest: The mystery of faith.

A – We proclaim your death, O Lord,
and profess your Resurrection
until you come again.

PRAYER FOR PEACE after the Our FatherLord Jesus Christ, who said to your Apostles, Peace I leave you,  my peace I give you, look not on our sins, but on the faith of your Church, and graciously grant her peace and unity in accordance with your will.  Who live and reign for ever and ever.



All: Lord, I am not worthy
that you should enter under my roof,
but only say the word
and my soul shall be healed.

The Lord be with you    Response:    AND WITH YOUR SPIRIT
