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, there is a paper version, copies are available from Fr. Paul: you can return this directly to the Bishop at Wardley Hall by posting it to the address on the questionnaire.
There are many important decisions to be made and everyones’ input is important.
Please submit all responses by the deadline of Friday 7 August 2015.

Diaconate 2015-17A

Welcome home and congratulations to Rev. Richard Howard who was ordained Deacon on 12th July in Rome. Richard will be going on his parish placement, from September until his Priestly Ordination next summer, with Canon Tadhg Mullins in Langley.

We have some more pictures on the NEWS page

Please keep him and his family in your prayers.

On Friday 11th September the House of Commons will debate and vote on a Bill to legalise assisted suicide. This will put the most vulnerable people in our society at risk.

PLEASE contact your MP, urging them to attend the debate and vote against the Bill. You can send an e-mail to your MP via the Catholic Bishops’ Conference website HERE
or send a letter by post.

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?


Universal : That volunteers may give themselves generously to the service of the needy.
Evangelisation: That setting aside our very selves we may learn to be neighbours to those who find themselves on the margins of human life and society.
