The church kneelers are missing this weekend, they have been taken away to be upholstered and they will be returned on Thursday. They have served us well since the church was built. Please do not put your feet on the kneelers, hopefully they will serve the parish well for the next forty years.

Richard, one of our parishioners, is due to be ordained to the Sacred Order of the Diaconate on Sunday 12th July in the Church of Our Lady of the Snows, Palazzola, in the Diocese of Albano, Italy, by the Right Reverend John Arnold, Bishop of Salford. It is thought that he will subsequently be assigned to a local Parish for a period.
Please keep him and his family in your prayers.

As promised in Bishop John’s recent Pastoral Letter (available HERE), the diocesan consultation is now ready and will remain open for several weeks. It can be accessed at  where responses can be entered directly onto the electronic form. This is the best way to complete the questionnaire, since the system will also do the analysis of responses. For those who do not have access to a computer, paper copies of the questionnaire can be obtained next weekend from back of church. Please submit all responses by the deadline of Friday 7 August 2015.

We are still in need of more volunteers who can help us in this important ministry at Mass.
If you would like to read at whatever Mass you normally come to, then have a word with Mike Davis or Fr. Paul. Current readers please collect the new schedule from the sacristy.  Note that both the frequency of some masses and some 'pairings' have changed

ROCHDALE FOODBANK Thank you once again for your wonderful generosity. Sadly the demands on the service are increasing, in these difficult times. Could we please try to continue to keep up the generous level of donations you have made over the past year?
