22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time – August 28th 2016

Dear Parishioners,

Last Wednesday evening 19 volunteers cleaned, trimmed and clipped the cemetery in preparation for the annual Requiem Mass tomorrow.  This was the largest number we’ve ever had and they all came as a tribute to Les Collinson in recognition of his dedication and care for the old Catholic Cemetery. Our thanks go to all.

Bishop John has invited all parishes to discuss the benefits and drawbacks of the amalgamation proposals in the consultation document he presented before the holidays.  He further asks how we as an amalgamated parish propose to use our new structure as a launch pad to attract back ‘resting catholics’ and become an outward looking, relevant and attractive 21st century parish.  This whole parish meeting will be in our School in Dunsop Bridge (Thorneyholme RC Primary) on Wednesday 14th September at 7.30pm.

Fr John
