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
