This week, we say goodbye to Fr. Francis Wadsworth, who has been appointed as the new Parish Priest of St. Anne and St. Joseph in Accrington. We thank Fr. Francis for his service to St. Cuthbert’s and the parish community over the past two years. We also welcome Fr. Simon Firth, who has been appointed the new Parish Priest of St. Margaret Clitherow Parish, Rochdale. We look forward to welcoming Fr. Simon into school in the new term and will keep both him and Fr. Francis in our prayers as they begin their new roles.
