All those who are sick or housebound.

Arlo Eddie Calcutt who was baptised last Sunday: congratulations and welcome to God’s family.

NEW CHURCH LIGHTING: Unfortunately there has been a delay in completing the new church lighting due to sickness of the engineer. New lights are fitted and working in the hall and sacristy. Work should be completed in church during the week commencing 1 November.

HOMELESS PROJECT MANCHESTER: We go out into the city on Friday nights where we meet people who are desperate for gloves, fleeces, jumpers, tracksuit bottoms, coats and trainers. A box will be left to collect any items you can spare at the back of church. Many thanks for your support. For more information speak to Andrea Chapman on 077384 98520 or Email

CHILDRENS’ LITURGY are taking a break over half term but will resume on Sunday, 7 November. All primary school aged children are welcome to join and explore and pray the readings at a level they can understand.

THE SVP would like to say a big thank you to all who supported last Sunday’s Coffee Morning which raised £244 to support their work with the poor, sick and disadvantaged locally and further afield. It was also lovely to come together again with fellow parishioners..

MONTH OF THE HOLY SOULS: November is the month when we remember all the Holy Souls, especially our own loved ones who have died. If you would like the names of any loved ones included on our November list please hand them in with whatever donation you wish to make. Masses will be offered regularly throughout November for them.

FAMILY FAST envelopes and donations to support the work of Cafod should be placed in the baskets at the church door.

CARITAS BOXES: Would anyone who has a Caritas Box leave it in the church porch for collection. A new payment system using a mobile phone is to be introduced. Details to follow.

SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION  is offered after Weekday Masses  in the sacristy or by appointment

THANK YOU For your Offertory gifts Please place any offertory envelopes or offerings in the baskets at the church door or post through the presbytery letterbox;  thank you for your continued support of the parish in such difficult circumstances.
