Recent changes to ParishesFriday 27th October 2017
The Bishop has recently announced that the following parishes will be amalgamated. These changes have come into effect immediately.
- St Christopher, Ashton, and St Mary of the Angels, Ashton will form the new parish of Holy Cross and St Helen, Ashton under Lyne.
- St Mary’s, Levenshulme, and St Richard, Longsight will form the new parish of St Robert of Newminster.
- St Willibrord, Clayton, and St Anne and St Bridgid, Ancoats and Bradford will form the new parish of The Holy Spirit, Manchester.
- St Anne, Accrington, and St Joseph, Accrington will form the new parish of St Anne and St Joseph, Accrington.
- St John the Evangelist, Bromley Cross, St Brendan, Harwood, and St Columba, Tonge Moor will form the new parish of Corpus Christi, Bolton.
Many of these parishes have been working together for a number of years. We offer our prayers to the new parishes as they come together as a community in worship and to build strong missionary parishes.
