Congratulations Archbishop-elect John Wilson

Congratulations to Bishop John Wilson who has accepted the post as Archbishop of Southwark. Mgr Wilson was very popular here in the Leeds Diocese when he was the Apostolic Administrator before Bishop Stock arrived. Needless to say he was always very kind to us - for example giving Canon Wiley faculties to confirm some children in the Extraordinary Form when we were without a bishop. He follows bishops Hinsley, Heenan, Dwyer and Roche who all worked in this diocese and became archbishops.

Ad multos annos!

Archbishop-elect John Wilson

Notitiae

I was away a couple of weeks ago when the death of Fr. Canice McGinn, Parish Priest of St. Matthew's, Allerton, Bradford, was announced.
A very diligent pastorally minded priest Fr. McGinn was an EF celebrant for us for a considerable time at Killingbeck chapel in the late 1980s, as he was a priest of that deanery. He was always incredibly cheerful, likeable and positive as well as being very popular with all those hearing his Masses. May he rest in peace. Fr.'s funeral will be offered at noon on Wednesday 12th. June at  St. Matthew's, Saffron Drive, Allerton Bradford. This will be Mass in the Ordinary Form.

For anybody in Warrington at the end of the month, I have been asked to advertise the following:


Please remember that we have EF Masses at the Cathedral at 8.00 a.m. next Sunday (Trinity) as well as Masses at Broughton and Bradford. Confessions at call.

The next Ordinariate Use Mass at St Joseph’s is on Saturday, 4 May at 3.00 p.m. 
At this Mass, we will receive one candidate into the Catholic Church according to Ordinariate Rites, so this is a big moment for us - our first convert.
