The Society of Mary held its National October Devotion in the North West this year, at the church of St James the Great, Haydock. An informative poster is available  here.  On the day, about a hundred souls gathered for worship. Bishop Philip North presided and gave an inspiring address reminding us of the church's responsibility to reach out and help all to flourish, whether church members or not. Music for the Mass was provided by the St Nicholas Singers accompanied by Michael Wynne, and it was stunningly beautiful. Altogether it was a memorable day of fellowship and worship. We are grateful to Fr Rodney Middleton and his congregation for providing venue and hospitality for this event - especial thanks to the members of the Walsingham Cell who provided a sumptuous lunch buffet!
