New parish name

Bishop John has formally issued the decree establishing our new parish under the title of Holy Trinity, Worsley. The three churches will retain the own names but will now share a common identity. We know this will entail a great deal of hard work and generosity on the part of all, but we are confident that the Holy Spirit will give us the insight and wisdom to enable us to grow as a missionary parish.

Bishop John will celebrate Mass with us on our new patronal feast, Trinity Sunday, in two weeks – there will only be one Mass that day in the parish; it will be at St Edmund's - that Mass will be at 10.00am on Sunday 27th May. It is suggested that there be a procession from Christ the King church to St Edmund's beginning at 9.15am. Parishioners from both churches can take part – this is a wonderful opportunity to be both missionary and to offer Eucharistic hospitality

Dementia Friendly Garden

This week, work will begin on the construction of a garden at the rear of Christ the King church and presbytery. This is a major project generously funded by the Albert Gubay Foundation, who are also helping to refurbish the Scout Hut. If you would like to help with this project, either for gardening or caring, please see Fr John or Tony Bird
