After not feeling too good for the last few weeks (as some had noticed) you may have already heard the news that I was admitted to hospital during the week after having suffered a stroke. I am already on the way to a good and hopefully almost-full recovery (if I do what I'm told, which will be a first for me!) and I am so very grateful for the concern and prayers offered by so many. But nobody is indispensable, and certainly not me, so the life of the parishes will continue more or less as normal thanks to the kind help of so many priests and deacons (who already have enough to do without being burdened with my inaction) and of many members of the parishes keeping things flowing smoothly behind the scenes. There may be some slight alterations on occasion to Masses but these will be notified in advance wherever possible. I look forward to being "back in the saddle" as soon as I can (I'm already bored with inactivity!) and until then apologise for any inconvenience.


To avoid congestion in the nearby streets due to parents parking their cars as they drop off or collect their children from school, parents of children at Holy Family School are very welcome to use the church car park. Entrance and exit is through the gates on Lily Lane.

Wigan World has some old photos of Walking Days, May Processions etc.
