LENT 2017
Do try and join us for Weekday Mass during Lent, if possible. The readings and prayers are there to help us on our spiritual journey.
Mass each weekday morning at 9.30am, and don’t forget there is also an early Mass each Friday of Lent at 6.30am, and a Mass on Wednesday evenings at 7pm.
Stations of the Cross and Benediction each Sunday afternoon at 4.00pm.

CAFOD APPEAL
We had planned to have a special collection for Cafod in a couple of weeks time, but as you will know from the dreadful scenes we have all seen on the news these past few days, it is perhaps better if we are able to contribute to Cafod this week (or next), so as to help these people. Millions of men, women and children are in need of urgent help in South Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya. If we don't act now the famine already in parts of South Sudan will spread across the rest of the country.
Please leave your offerings in the box on the table in the centre aisle. Thank You for your generosity.

YOUNG ADULTS VOCATIONS GROUP
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.....

ROCHDALE FOODBANK
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 www.rochdale.foodbank.org.uk 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.

PARISH PILGRIMAGE
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.

DIOCESAN RESTRUCTURING
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.
