Such a lot of things from our Bishop Paul Swarbrick

Please look at the  link diocese of Lancaster above for our newspaper "The Voice of Lancaster" and  for other news


The Pontifical Council for the New Evangelisation that the National Shrine of Our Lady of  Walsingham has chosen as one of the shrines worldwide to lead daily prayers for the end of the  pandemic. More information on this is available from https://www.walsingham.org.uk/ 

In addition to this Our Lady’s Shrine in Walsingham is holding a Rosary Mission in the light of  the Rededication of England as the Dowry of Mary and extends the call for Our Lady’s  Protection and Queenship over the entire world. Each night at 8pm there will be a foundational  Rosary – to Jesus through Mary led from a different Parish/Shrine. Sunday May 30th between 5-6pm is the Rosary Hour for the Diocese of Lancaster.


Looking forward to the Solemnity of Pentecost, I bring to your attention a Novena of Prayer for  evangelisation and renewal of the Church. The Novena begins on the Solemnity of the  Ascension. You will find the information and resources available from  https://www.cbcew.org.uk/home/events/thy-kingdom-come/pentecost-novena/ . It is my hope  that there will also be a homily from the bishops of England and Wales as well as the Scottish  bishops, which can be used on Pentecost Sunday.

Your kind prayers are asked 
for Suzanne Schofield, a faithful member of the parish may she rest in peace.
Please remember her husband John who is also sick, and their five children.

Suzanne's funeral will be at Carlton Crematorium on Wed 5th May at 14.00.
