This weekend a Pastoral Letter from Bishop John will be read at all the Masses.
In his Pastoral Letter Bishop John speaks to us here at St. Vincent’s and says:-

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 will be a special page on the diocesan website relating to these proposals. This will contain a full copy of the report, together with a recording of the pastoral letter and a short video presentation by the bishop. All of this will go live at around 1pm on Sunday)
The full report was made available for all homes at Masses today and 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.
