Father Michael is leaving St Edmunds

Bishop John has asked Fr Michael Buckley, Parish Priest of St Edmund's and Lancashire Martyrs, to take up a new appointment as Parish Priest of Sacred Heart, Rochdale, taking over from Fr David O'Kane who is retiring. We wish them both well as they begin this new phase of their priesthood.

In addition to Christ the King, Fr John has been appointed Parish Priest of St Edmund's and Lancashire Martyrs. Fr George Cheeramkuzhy has been appointed as Assistant Priest. He will reside at St Edmund's and has been asked to help Fr John facilitate the amalgamation of Christ the King with St Edmund's and Lancashire Martyrs. We welcome him as he prepares to share his ministry among us.

This will be an exciting and challenging time for both parishes; let us pray that the Holy Spirit will give wisdom, patience and courage to all concerned.
