Well after a one day return on Sunday 1st November I am back in St. Winefride's and the church is closed again.
This will last during the current lockdown until December 2nd.
The December edition of the Catholic Voice of Lancaster is available on this site.
Mary's Meals are doing fantastic work and the government have promised matched funding for their present project. For every pound raised government will add a pound. If you Gift Aid a pound the charity will get £2.40

Prayers please for Susanne Schofield and John Schofield and all who are sick in the parish and for Brian Rostron my brother in law who died on 29th July. He was married to my sister on 29th August 1971 nearly 49 years ago. They have one daughter Rachel and Brian has a brother and a sister.
Please can people keep an eye on the church premises.
They have been deliberately damaged.
