Thank you all most sincerely for your kindness, generosity and support over the past ten years. I can say without fear of contradiction that they have been the happiest and most fulfilling of the 49 years of priestly ministry. It has been a real blessing for me to have been your parish priest since 2012. Fr Jim Clarke will have pastoral responsibility for the parish of The Sacred Heart & St William from Monday July 18th onwards. He will have responsibility for both St Joseph’s, Mossley, and Sacred Heart & St William, so there will inevitably be changes. I know that you will warmly welcome Fr Jim and assure him of your support. Let us keep each other in prayer as we face a future none of us know. With my very best wishes and renewed thanks.
Go gently, Fr Bernard
Come and meet Fr Jim
