Chorley Justice & Peace Group
The role of the Justice & Peace movement is to tackle poverty, violence, prejudice and injustice, to act on climate change, to protect the environment, and to work for a world where all have access to food, clean water, shelter, health, education and a livelihood.

Chorley Justice & Peace Group is inviting parishioners from all the Catholic Parishes in the Chorley Pastoral Area who are interested in supporting this work to join them.

For more information on justice & peace or if you would like to be involved in the Group’s activities after lockdown or to support them in any way, please contact  Andrew Thomson  on 07802 249495  or  e-mail

Parish Records
Our Parish Records need to be updated. Recent changes in data protection legislation mean that we are unable to store your personal details or to contact you by telephone or e-mail or post without your written consent. We have left forms at the back of our churches for you to take away and complete, then return to us when you can. If you know any parishioners who are not able to attend Mass at the moment but who are a part of our parish community please pass on a form to them too. This would have been a very valuable resource for the parish during lockdown, but hopefully we can learn as we go along and get better at keeping in touch. Thank you.

Streamed Masses: Mass from our parishes is streamed on our Facebook page: “Parishes of St Chad and St Bede” If you go to
you will see other churches in our diocese which are webcasting their services.
