Update on Parish Merger

St Mary of the Angels Update—After the Archbishop’s proposals to merge and close St Mary of the Angels Church two Parish meetings took place. In the meetings Parishioners voted to oppose the decree issued by the Archbishop to merge the parishes. In a further meeting a Parishioners’ Representative Group was formed. This group met on Tuesday 14th August and have initiated the appeal process to Rome after the parish received a letter from the Archbishop rejecting the petition to him to stop the merger. We will provide further updates once any new information is available.

The Archbishop intends to come to St Mary’s on 14th September at 7:00pm to celebrate a mass of Thanksgiving .
