TTIP [Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership]

Few people are aware of the existence of the current negotiations between the EU and the USA. There are alarming reports about some of the hidden terms of this proposed trade agreement, which are said to be a threat to both UK citizens and to those in poorer countries. Wirral Trade Justice has prepared a draft letter to be sent to MP's/MEP's pointing out some of the concerns and asking where they stand on TTIP. Copies of this draft letter are available at the back of church. Postal addresses can be found at

Fr. John Seddon, Merseyside County Scout Chaplain sadly passed away

Fr. John Seddon, the Merseyside County Scout Chaplain has sadly passed away. Fr. John supported all scout groups and led many initiatives within scouting.  He will sadly be missed
 Fr John will be received at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King on Thursday 5th March at 7pm. This will be followed by a short service led by Bishop Tom Williams.  As there are extremely large numbers expected at the funeral mass, the Thursday night service has been arranged so that those unable to attend the Friday mass can pay their respects.  The funeral mass itself will take place on Friday 6th March at 11am at the Cathedral, led by Archbishop McMahon, followed by  internment at SS Peter and Paul RC Church cemetery in Crosby.
Scout Uniform is welcomed by all those wishing to attend either service.  It may also be nice for those Scouting friends to assemble together in the Cathedral to participate in both acts of worship and celebration for John.
