NEW DIOCESAN WEBSITE
We have a brand new website:  www.dioceseofsalford.org.uk The website will let you know what is happening around our Diocese. You can search for people and places. We also hope to give you an insight into the Diocesan departments and services. Some material is still in progress so come back and visit often for updates.

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.....

GIFT AID COSTS YOU ABSOLUTELY NOTHING
If you are a taxpayer and you sign a Gift Aid Form the Parish gets 25% of your contribution back from the government.
It is as simple as that!
Your information is confidential and, while it would be great if you could contribute every week, it is not essential; the amount reclaimed from the taxman is based on the amount donated and not on any fixed weekly amount.
All that is needed is that you sign a confidential form available from Fr. Paul or Mike Rowley (contact details on GROUPS page) and return it to them.
Only 50% of our weekly collection is Gift Aided so we are losing out on a very significant free handout from the taxman.

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.

 PAPAL PRAYER INTENTIONS (September)
Evangelization: Parishes at the service of the mission 
That our parishes, animated by a missionary zeal, may be places where faith is communicated and charity is seen

Now that you are here, please have a look around and why not visit the outstanding daily prayer website produced by the Society of Jesus at SACRED SPACE.
