The big news is that church is now open and masses have begun. All is going well with the safety measures in place. Stewards are on hand to help direct the congregation and to remind people of the changes. Things are slightly different but at least we are able to worship together again at last.

Our Parish Council recently had a virtual meeting the minutes of which can be found here.

As has been mentioned often on recent bulletins the church has lost out financially over the period of Covid -19, income has reduced considerably and we are all being asked to ensure we keep up with our weekly offerings. If you are not currently able to attend church, weekly offerings can be given via direct debit, the form is available for download here and can be dropped in at the presbytery. If any parishioners require a hard copy of the form, please contact Fr. Michael and delivery will be arranged.

Our online resources are still available, please follow the links to get this Sundays reflection, readings and bulletin online.

Live streaming of mass remains availabe from some of local churches – 9.30 Sunday Mass from St Teresas Penwortham here and 9.30, 11.00 and 18.30 Sunday Mass from St Gregorys Chorley here. Daily mass is also available from St Gregorys. A recording of mass to be watched at any time is available here.
