Many of the pupils of Holy Family RC and CE College Heywood started today with a Mass celebrated by their chaplain Fr Alfred Rebello, followed by a cheque presentation to Mark Wiggin, CEO Caritas Diocese of Salford. The money had been raised by the pupils as part of their Lenten commitment to supporting the St. Joseph’s Penny Appeal – one of the oldest charities in the Diocese of Salford that began in 1904 to help poor and disadvantaged children at a time before the Welfare State.

Bishop John was delighted to celebrate Mass with the Deaf community of Salford Diocese on 17th April at St Patrick’s, Collyhurst, and the home of Joseph’s Mission to Deaf People in Manchester.  The Diocese has two active pastoral groups lead by the Deaf community one in Manchester and the other in Burnley.  This year it was the turn of Manchester group to host the celebration that brought together 102 people from the community. After Mass the Bishop was presented with a gift from the Deaf community. He spent time with the Deaf who were delighted to see him and congratulated him on his signing skills.

Bishop John is pictured with some of the St. Joseph’s staff (Sisters of Evron) and Fr Jim Clarke, Chaplin to the Deaf Service.
