The government has now approved a phased re-opening of churches nationally, beginning with individual private prayer. Not all churches will re-open straight away. Darwen has not yet been contacted so St Joseph’s and St Edward’s will not re-open on 15th June. Planning and preparation is underway for re-opening and details will be communicated once the various infection control measures have been addressed and approved by Salford Diocese. We face big changes ahead and must accept that this will be a very different way forward.https://www.dioceseofsalford.org.uk/churches-to-begin-preparing-for-private-prayer-opening/

Flags flying today at St Joseph’s. Church Bells will ring out tonight. We celebrate the victory and we remember the fallen.
May they rest in peace.
