Most of the course will be done in your own time, with occasional meetings with other participants. If you are interested please leave your name & phone no with Fr Paul or Mike Davis.Further information on the Year of Mercy Page
FR. RICHARD HOWARD
We wish Fr. Richard every blessing as he takes up his first appointment in the diocese as assistant priest to Fr. Simon Stamp at St. Anne’s Accrington.
May God bless him at this time and throughout his priestly ministry.
PARISH MEETING AND DIOCESAN RESTRUCTURING
Following on from our own parish meeting and Bishop John’s meeting throughout May with all the clergy, the proposals have been published and were made available for comment after Masses on the 10th of July. As these are quite far reaching restructuring proposals so as to prepare the way for future growth, it is important that your comments are submitted on these proposals by the 13th October.
In view of the importance of possible changes for our deanery and dioceses, 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.
It has links to download the document and to submit your comments and also has a comprehensive summary of the comments and suggestions from our own parish meeting on 3rd May. DEADLINE DATE - OCTOBER 14th
