Welcome Fr James and Kh Anna!

Other News …

  1.  We plan, God willing to open a new mission in North Manchester / South Lancashire when Fr James arrives.  This will be a “daughter” church plant of St Aidan’s until it grows to be self sufficient.  The Archbishop has blessed this initiative.
  2. The Jubilee Project: We are outgrowing our church premises in Levenshulme with over 120 parishioners regularly after Liturgy on Sunday.  We are, therefore, looking for a new building in South Manchester.  We have an offer in waiting for our present site.  The Archbishop has also blessed this project, named after our Silver Jubilee in 2020. 

    Please keep your eyes open and report anything suitable to Father Gregory.
