Easter pictures: As there will be no Easter parish card this year, the parish thanks the children from St Paul’s Primary School for their Easter pictures which are shown here – > Easter card pictures

Celebrate the Easter Triduum: As we know we cannot gather in our church at this time. St Alban’s in Macclesfield and St Peter’s in Hazel Grove are broadcasting their Easter Triduum and Easter Masses live online. Further afield you can watch the broadcasts from the Vatican, see the schedule at The Vatican’s Worldwide Telecasts and the summary at Holy Week Transmission from The Vatican 2020. And you may enjoy the reflective prayers and hymns provided by Dan Schutte and OCP as their contribution to our understanding and celebration of the Easter Triduum -> Dan Schutte and OCP – a virtual celebration of the Easter Triduum.

We regret that our newsletters may have some personal contact details removed.
