Pastoral Letter from Bishop John for the First Sunday of Advent

St Charles Borromeo RC Church, Rishton



In August 2020 because of 'damage resulting from a long period of deterioration' the Bishop directed that St Charles' Church 'must remain closed for the foreseeable future'. Parishioners of St Charles are welcome to attend the nearby churches of St Mary's, St Wulstan's and St Hubert's.
