Try to undertake your Lenten journey in the best way by joining us for Mass.

Every Friday morning during Lent there will be an early Mass for you at 6.30am.
Every Wednesday during Lent there is an evening Mass for you at 7.00pm.
Every Sunday during Lent we have Stations of the Cross and Benediction at 4.00pm.

We have also added a LENT page to try to collate all our Lenten information on one page

A Lenten tradition in Rome is to visit a different Church each day of Lent and celebrate a special Mass called a “Station Mass”. In our Deanery, four Station Masses have been arranged throughout Lent as part of our journey to Easter. Rather than a church a day, we are  invited to visit four different churches, as follows:
Holy Family, Rochdale on Thursday 26th February 7.30 p.m.
St. Mary’s, Littleborough next Thursday 5th March 7.30 p.m.
Our Lady of Grace, Prestwich on Thursday 12th March 7.30 p.m.
St. Joseph’s, Heywood on Thursday 19th March 7.30 p.m.  -  with our Bishop John. 

During Lent there is always a collection for Cafod from Family Fast Day. This year there is an added incentive in that the UK government has promised to match every pound and penny you give to CAFOD’s Lenten appeal. See our Lent page for more information.


The Bishops of England and Wales have prepared these reflections and ask that they are made available to all as we celebrate the Feast of the Holy Family. Please download and read this short document and share your thoughts with one another especially in your families. Bishop John Arnold asks that you consider sending your thoughts in writing to him at
Wardley Hall, Wardley Hall Road, Worsley, Manchester. M28 2ND.
He cannot promise to answer all submissions but will read and consider what you write and will use it as part of his submission to Cardinal Vincent Nichols and to Bishop Peter Doyle, who are to be the representatives from England and Wales at the second Synod on the Family next October in Rome.

Monday 8th December, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, saw another great moment in the history of the Diocese, as Bishop John Arnold was installed as the eleventh Bishop of Salford.

He invites us all to recite a simple prayer each day: "Stay with us, Lord, on our journey"

"Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do." (St. John XXIII)

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?
