Shrewsbury Diocese Deaneries have now been replaced by locally agreed Pastoral Areas, each consisting of a small group of neighbouring parishes. Each Pastoral Area is managed by a team, which consists of the parish priests, a deacon, a lay parish representative, a catechist from the area and a teacher from a local Catholic School.

There are 26 Local Pastoral Areas throughout the Diocese arranged within 6 Regions. Each Region comes under the Pastoral Care of a Regional Dean.

The Church of the Holy Spirit is part of the Pastoral Area of Stockport and Thameside.

Regional Dean : Canon Vincent Whelan
