Church Re-Opening

Our Lady of Grace church will re-open on Friday 19th June, feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Opening times for the foreseeable future are:

Monday to Friday, 11.00 am until 7.00 pm.

Saturdays 11.00 am until 3.00 pm.

Sunday opening is delayed for the time being.

For the moment, this is for private visits and private prayer. Because of the current restrictions, public liturgies and prayer are not permitted.

There will be a one-way system in the church.
You are asked to use the hand sanitisers as you enter and leave.
You are also asked to keep social distancing.
Use only the benches that are not roped off.
Two welcomers will be on hand to assist visitors.

It is so good that we can come into our church again.

Our Lady of Grace, pray for us.

Sister Joan says "Thanks"

Thank you so much for your tremendous generosity in continuing to support our Food Bank since the lock down of our churches. Thank you for your food donations which, as always, are so well thought out and also for your very generous cash donations for me to purchase food.

Our Food Bank has grown and to safeguard the volunteers we have moved into a bigger space within the ROC Community Centre. We are getting over a hundred referrals each week from social workers, care workers, the police and health professionals - for help for vulnerable people in Bury, Radcliffe and Prestwich.
