Holy Spirit Church Today

The new altar, lectern and altar chairs were installed in 2002 as a memorial to Fr Prendiville.

In 2009 the roof over the Altar was replaced and further refurbishments/improvements for the Church are planned.

CCTV cameras were installed in 2017 to deter trespassers and vandals.

Fr Bill Fitzgerald arrived on 6th September 2017 to replace Fr Marianus who has returned to India.
As he will also be Parish Priest of St Bernadettes Stockport there will be no 11am Sunday Mass and fewer weekday masses.

As well as looking after 2 parishes Fr Bill has found time to introduce the Diocesian 'Mission Together' project in both churches. Each church has been given a target to raise funds for the different aspects of the Mission which include engaging the youth, training new priests, looking after retired priests and of course the necessary church maintenance. Attendance at the Children's Liturgy is very encouraging and we now see up to 30 children at the 9.00am Sunday Mass. Preparations including registering for First Forgiveness and First Communion in 2019 are now taking place.

Refurbishment of the presbytery started on 4th June 2018 and is now complete and in September Fr Bill moved in. Work on the church toilets is also complete - we now have an accessible toilet. The roof lights have been replaced and the leaking roof repaired.
