The Chair and Committee of our Ladies Group hope you are all keeping well in these rather unusual times.  The Ladies Group will resume its meetings as soon as it is safe to do so.  I certainly miss being able to chat and catch up with everyone.  We will let you know when meetings will restart, meanwhile remember to keep in touch with one another.  Wishing you all a Joyous Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Carol Riley (Chair).


Congratulations to Andrew, a pupil at Thorneyholme School for writing to Bishop Arnold asking for a live-streamed Christmas Mass for the schools. Bishop Arnold phoned Mrs Jackson at the school with his thanks for the suggestion.
The Mass was live-streamed on Thursday 17th December at 2.00 pm and will be available to download for the next few days on

Andrew and Arthur were two pupils from Thorneyholme School who were recorded reading The First reading and the Responsorial Psalm for the Mass. Well done
