Why not join us for the 9.30am Mass during the week? Always a time of peace and quiet, not to mention many blessings!

Sincere forgiveness of enemies isn’t easy and in some circumstances we could find it practically impossible to avoid thirsting for vengeance. No one needs to judge anyone else from the outside. Only God understands the heart and forgives unconditionally, even when we are unable to do so ourselves. It remains the challenge set out by Jesus and a grace we should always pray to receive.

In this centenary year of Blessed Oscar Romero, the Justice and Peace Association (Caritas Diocese of Salford) will be holding their annual commemoration at Sacred Heart, Colne on Saturday 25 March, BB8 9NB.  There will be a talk by Fr Jim O’Keefe at 2.00pm (tea/coffee from 1.30pm) followed by Mass at 3.00pm.  All welcome.

A new young adults group (18+) has been established in the Diocese to provide young adults with an informal, but structured environment in which to discern, ‘what are you looking for?’ Read More.....

January was exceptionally busy, in fact our busiest month yet with 402 vouchers for emergency food served. As a result we gave out 1.25 tonnes more food than we received in the month emphasising again just how reliant we are on the continuing goodwill and generosity of our supporters.
 The website is now updated regularly with lists of food products which are in short supply and those of which there is a surplus. To find this, from the home page, click on Give Help and then Donate Food. Thank you all once again.

Fr. Paul and a group of parishioners are going on the Parish Pilgrimage to the Holy Land, which will now take place from Tuesday 30th May 2017 to Tuesday 6th June 2017. Deposits are now due. Please have a word with Catherine Naden after Mass or contact her on 07590191785.

In his Pastoral Letter Bishop John spoke to us here at St. Vincent’s saying:-
In the case of this parish of Saint Vincent de Paul, Norden, it is proposed that it remains as at present. Depending on the outcome of some further discussion that I have requested, it may be that this parish will be asked to incorporate some territory from the parish of Saint Gabriel and the Angels and Saint John the Baptist, Rochdale.
The implementation of these proposals will happen in stages, appropriate to each situation over the coming months and years.”
There is a special page on the Diocesan website relating to these proposals and the full report is also available HERE.
In view of the importance of possible changes for our deanery and diocese, we have added a separate web page HERE  to collate as much information as possible in the one location. The page can also be accessed via the menu at the top of the page.


Papal Prayer Intention
That all those who are afflicted, especially the poor, refugees, and marginalized, may find welcome and comfort in our communities.
