The Holy Father’s prayer Intentions for the month of October from “Mission Today” workers and the unemployed

That all workers may receive respect and protection of their rights, and that the unemployed may receive the opportunity to contribute to the common good.

Pastoral Area Changes: As part of Wigan Deanery changes St. Jude’s and St. Aidan’s are to join together to form one parish to be known as “The Parish of Saint Jude and Saint Aidan”. Our new parish will have one Parish Priest with one administration and two church buildings. It is hoped that this will happen around the beginning of Advent but the exact date is not known as it is dependent on various building adaptations and other changes across the Deanery. Our new Parish Priest, Fr. John Causey, is very much looking forward to joining us and supporting us as we move forward together. Canon MacNally in retirement will reside in St. Aidan’s presbytery.
