Charity Night We are looking to organise a Charity Night, in the Parish Centre, to coincide with "Children in Need" on Friday 18th November. If you feel you could help in the organisation of this event, then please speak with Fr John.


The Annual "Service of Light" will be this Sunday 30th October at 2pm at St Joseph's Church, Audley, Blackburn. This is a Service for all families of children who have died. Everyone is welcome.


Two Adverts have come in from the diocese:-



As part of the ongoing development at the Cathedral a new contemporary café has just opened, serving an impressive selection of homemade soups, sandwiches and hot meals and with freshly brewed teas from a wide selection and coffees sourced from local roaster Heart and Graft. At the moment the café is open from 11am – 2pm, with a full lunchtime menu and a daily hot meal special. Opening times will be extended at the end of November to accommodate morning coffee and afternoon teas. Why not pay a visit to the Cathedral Centre and visit the diocesan bookshop and the new café.
