Welcome to St Wilfrid's Parish in the Heart of Preston

Welcome to our New Website

Fr Joseph Dunn helped to introduce piped gas lighting in Preston. His front door of 1 Chapel Street remains part of the St Wilfrid’s footprint.

Exactly two hundred years after those gas fittings, Piotr Stanowski started work on the earlier version of the website you see now, and Marco Mura’s photos, which are still very evident, enhanced the website. Since Piotr’s return to Poland, David Cape has put in four years of updating and development of the website.

It has now been through a seismic shift! I am most grateful to Chris Boles (Caledonian Websites) for being the architect of this shift, and to Chris Lloyd (Parish Administrator) for her assistance in the process. The website is only available thanks to the commitment of these gifted people working since 2016.
May this website be for you both a door and a light, in your own search.

Blessings upon you all!DSC00145

Welcome to St Wilfrid's

 

In the midst of its busy surrounds, St. Wilfrid's offers a peaceful sanctuary of quiet, of calm and of prayer, and serves a vibrant, family-friendly, student-oriented parish community - generously supported by the dedication of its committed parishioners, who carry out a variety of different roles, ministries and groups.

We've had a letter from Jesuit Missions asking us to support Fr Stan Swamy SJ, imprisoned in India for his work on human rights. Send a birthday card to him in prison to mark his 84th birthday. Read their letter here and please do all that you can.
