Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Requiscat in pace.


We will offer Mass for the repose of her soul this Sunday at both Mass times.

We will pray for her who has borne the burden of being head of state for all these many years. In this, she is like every Christian.  For the Catholic way is not, at this point, to celebrate her life in a memorial service or to eulogize the departed into an an informal canonization. Rather, we pray for her soul, as we do for all those who have gone before us to stand before the King of Heaven.

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her.


This Friday, as a parish, we will go on pilgrimage to visit the relics of St Bernadette. The coach leaves at 6pm for St Mary's, Chorley for Mass and candlelight procession with Archbishop Malcolm. There are still a few places left if you want to come along.


Spare a thought also for one of our parishioners, Anthony, who tomorrow, Saturday, is undertaking the "Tough Mudder" assault course and doing this as a sponsored event raising funds for our parish. Thank you, Anthony!
