St Walburge’s, Preston, gets Lottery grant

Briefing. This is very good news; see the earlier posts here.

From the Catholic Herald, in part: St Walburge's, in Preston, a Grade II listed early Victorian Catholic church, is to receive £160,000 from Lottery funds to help with maintenance and repairs.
The church, listed as one of the 10 most endangered buildings in the country, was earmarked for closure last summer as a result of the Diocese of Lancaster's financial crisis. St Wlaburge's was opened in 1854.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
