Hello everyone. I’m Fr Francis Wadsworth the Parish Priest here in Rochdale.  It is with great pleasure I welcome you to our revamped parish website.  It is has taken us a while to get here, but we have made it!! 

As you scroll around the site you will find a snapshot of parish life—what we do and who we are. Mass times, info on arranging baptisms, weddings and funerals is all here. Oh, and while it’s great to see virtual visitors on our website, please feel free to join us in person to pray, serve and strengthen the bonds of real community!

Fr. Francis

My dear People,

CHRIST IS RISEN, Alleluia!

What does this mean? It means is that we have a hope of the resurrection ourselves. We no longer have to fear death as the end of our earthly existence. We can stand confident and know that Christ is the core of our hope. Christ has won the battle and we are to follow in His footsteps. Where He has gone we will follow.

May I take this opportunity to wish all of you my dear parishioners, your families and friends a very happy and Holy Easter. With the assurance of my prayers and my blessing.

Fr Francis
