Lay Led Funerals – Information Session:        The situation of priests having to deal with an increasing number of funerals has led the Archdiocese of Liverpool to open the way for Funeral Services to be led by members of the laity.  On Saturday 1 April at St. Vincent’s, Bramhall from 10am to 1pm, (coffee from 9.30am) Maureen Knight and Maureen O’Brien, from the Pastoral Formation Department in Liverpool, will explain how this works in parish practice and will bring resources to share.  This is a session to raise awareness in our Local Pastoral Area as to what the future may hold for us.  We hope as many as possible will attend.
