Lone Working

Can anyone who is likely to be working alone in the church let me know please. We need to ensure that we are following the process set by the Diocese to keep us all safe. You can phone and leave a message on the parish answer phone or email me. Many thanks. (Charlotte)



The Bishop will be visiting on 14th June 2022 at 7.30pm.


Evening liturgy at the Cathedral

Bishop Declan invites every parish to an evening liturgy at the Cathedral on 22nd June at 7pm when he will also present Clifton's Synod report to each parish. It is hoped that at least two people including the Parish Priest will be present to receive the report. However, there are no restrictions on numbers so please encourage your parishioners to attend. So that we can facilitate the event we would ask you encourage your parishioners to book onto the event via the Eventbrite website.


Flame 2023

As youth ministry "rebuilds" after the pandemic we hope this is an exciting prospect – something to aim for, and give hope, as young people (and all of us) get used to socialising again. The theme of Flame 2023 – which is exactly 150 days before World Youth Day in Lisbon – takes the WYD Scripture ("Mary arose and went in haste") and crystallises it into the theme, "Rise Up!" Rise up after the pandemic, Rise up as young Catholics, Rise up – as Mary did – for the surprising and beautiful adventure that is our Catholic faith. Learn more about Flame 2023 at FLAME – CYMFed This year, Clifton Diocese has booked tickets and a coach for 50 people. If you're interested in booking a ticket through and travelling with the diocese, please send an email to


WYD 2023

World Youth Day will next take place in Lisbon in 2023. The Department for Adult Education and Evangelisation is organising an eight-day pilgrimage from 31st July to 8th August 2023 for young adults (18-35) in our diocese. The provisional plan is to spend six nights in Lisbon and two nights in Fatima. There will be formation sessions for the group before the pilgrimage to build community and support one another in our faith journey. If you are interested in learning more about the Clifton Diocese World Youth Day 2023 Pilgrimage, and will be at least 18 years old on 1st April 2023, please register your interest at World Youth Day 2023 | Clifton Diocese.
