In recent days Bishop Campbell has linked parishes in the wake of the Fit For Mission? Review.
Two Parishes in Barrow in Furness and two in Workington are to be linked or merged. The church of the Sacred Heart and the Church of St. Mary (on Walney Isalnd) are to come together under one priest: Fr Bernard Woods who is presently Parish Priest at St. Cuthbert's, Blackpool. In Workington, Fr Gornall Parish Priest of St Gregory's, is to move to a new appointment and the clergy at Our Lady & St Michael's, Mgr Mulvany & Fr Doherty are to serve also St. Gregory's.
Bishop Campbell's first move was to create one single deanery from the three Preston deaneries. Doubtless there will be more announcements as the bishop works through the recommendations of the Fit For Mission?
